Beef Noodle Bowl

Strips of marinated beef, vegetables, and noodles make this Beef Noodle Bowl recipe a tasty and easy meal.
Beef noodle bowl from This quick & easy dinner combines strips of beef, veggies, & noodles in an Asian inspired sauce.

I’ve said it before and I know I’ll say it again but the Secret Recipe Club post for the month is always one of my favorites.

I love finding new blogs and recipes. This month I was assigned bcmom’s kitchen. Anna’s like me and believes a recipe is a starting point.

I knew I wanted to make a savory recipe this month. Easy Fettuccine Cacciatore was the first recipe to catch my eye. Chicken Garlic Pizza is also on my to-make list. I ended up making this beef noodle bowl recipe.

Of course I made a few changes to the recipe. One person who would be eating the recipe doesn’t care for carrots so I used a bell pepper instead. I also love the crunch water chestnuts give to stir fries so I added a can of those.

I also used what my local grocery stores label, depending on the store, carne asada or carne picada beef, which is already thinly sliced steak. I use it for two reasons, it’s about half the price of the sirloin in the original recipe and I don’t have to slice it. It’s also what I used in my quick and easy beef and broccoli.

This is definitely a recipe I will make again. It’s actually pretty similar in taste to the beef and broccoli but with the added crunch of water chestnuts.
