Skinny Asian Steak and Noodle Bowl


Skinny Asian Steak and Noodle Bowl
I’m in LOVE with this main course noodle bowl and I’m excited to have you try it! I adore Asian noodle bowls. The key to a good tasting one is in the broth. The other goodies are just a bonus. I’m happy to say this broth really delivers. It’s rich and flavorful and loaded with steak, ramen noodles and oodles of veggies. Each bowl has 240 calories and 7 grams of fat. This soup meal makes such a satisfying lunch or dinner any day of the week.

  • Add the onions, red peppers, celery and carrots to a microwave safe bowl. Cook in the microwave for 4 minutes to soften.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick pan or pot. Add the steak, Cook for 2 minutes. Turn over and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir often. Remove cooked steak to a plate.
  • Keep the steak drippings in the large pan and heat 1 more teaspoon olive oil. Add cooked vegetables, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook stirring often, for 2 minutes. Stir in broth, rice vinegar, soy sauce, corn and sugar. Bring to a boil. Stir in broccoli slaw or cabbage and ramen noodles. Bring back to a boil and turn down to simmer. Continue to cook and stir often, separating the noodles as they cook with a fork. Cook for 3-4 minutes until ramen noodles are soft.  Stir in cooked steak.
  • To serve: remove the ramen noodles with a fork and divide among each serving. Pour broth with vegetables and steak among 8 servings.  Serve with a spoon and chopsticks, if desired. The extra servings freeze great.

Shopping Tips
I love the lean top sirloin at Trader Joe’s. Most supermarkets sell it too.
Ginger, in a jar, can be found in the produce section next to garlic, in a jar.

  1. Have you tried the ginger in the squeeze tube that’s in the produce section? If you have, how does that compare to the stuff in the jar? I always buy the tube, so I’m curious if I should switch.

  2. Hey Nat, I’ve never tried the ginger in the squeeze tube so I don’t know. I do love ginger in a jar! You can try the tube and add a little. Then taste it. You can always add more, if desired.
    All the best,
