This is a mild yet flavour packed beef noodle soup recipe, that is a lighter, quicker, and easier to make version of a beef noodle recipe we did a couple of months ago. This is ideal for anyone who wants to make themselves a tasty noodle soup, but doesn’t want to buy the large number of ingredients required to make our previous recipe, or if you are simply short of time!

The ingredients are much simpler, and there are very few steps required to make this meal, however it still tastes great and is sure to satisfy your noodle soup craving.

Cooking instructions


Step 1: Soak 100g of dried rice noodles in some cool water.

Step 2: Whilst the noodles are soaking, add 1 litre of water to a pot, along with 1 pickled garlic with 1/2 tbsp of pickled garlic juice, 1/2 teaspoon of dried peppercorn, 1 tbsp of coriander stalks, 1/2 teaspoon of five spice powder, 1 tbsp of light soy sauce, 1 tbsp of dark soy sauce, 1/4 tbsp of palm sugar and 1 cinnamon stick. Give everything a good stir, then add in 150g of diced beef, mix in, cover the pot, and let the soup cook for 30 minutes on a low heat.

Step 3: After 30 minutes have passed, drain the rice noodles and cook them in boiling in water for about 5 minutes or so until they have softened. We cook one portion at a time – 100g should be enough for two portions.

Step 4: Once the noodles are ready, coat a bowl with some fried garlic oil, then place the portion noodles into the bowl. The garlic oil helps prevent the noodles sticking to the bowl. Then place 1/2 cup of bean sprouts on top of the portion of noodles, and finally spoon on the beef and just the soup broth minus any of the bits like the peppercorn or cinnamon stick.

Step 5: Garnish with spring onion, coriander, ground pepper, and anything else you like, then serve and enjoy!
