Japanese Beef Shirataki Noodle Soup


You often times get inspiration for recipes when you’re least expecting it!  For this dish, it happened to be when we were grocery shopping and we walked by a sampling booth.  Since our daughter loves try-zies, we never miss an opportunity to get one ourselves.

I didn’t even know what I was eating until I ate it and realized it was Shirataki Noodles, or low-carb/keto noodle with 0 net carbs!  So that inspired me to make this very simple dish and what I consider to be my version of low-carb/keto instant noodles, Japanese Beef Shirataki Noodle Soup!

In essence, this dish takes the idea of a shabu shabu and makes it into a noodle based dish rather than a fondue dipping type deal. 

We start with the basic Dashi base and simply add some Ponzu with some grated ginger and garlic and make the broth more pronounced.  You can add other vegetable such as napa, bok choy, spinach and they would all go well with the broth, but we just elected to keep it simple for the sake of the recipe. 

This one has less than 1g net carb/serving, so definitely low-carb/keto friendly.  The carbs are actually in the sauce, so probably less than 1g (unless you drink the soup).  What you get with this one is a pretty simple and light soup with hints of garlic and Ponzu. It kind of reminds me of a light flavored shabu shabu dish!
