Ponzu Beef Yam Noodles


Jump to Recipe
You often times get inspiration when you are 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 Yam Noodles, a no carb noodle.  So that inspired me to make a dish that was simple to put together to be my version of instant ramen!

This one has less than 1g net carb/serving, so definitely feel free to stuff yourself.  The carbs are actually in the sauce, so probably less than 1g (unless you drink the soup).  The taste on this one is pretty simple and light.  A little bite of ginger accompanied by ponzu dashi flavor.

For this dish, you will have to get yourself some bonito flakes, shabu shabu sliced meat, yam noodles, and ponzu.  You can pick all this up at an Asian store or Amazon (for some of the items).  Note – yam noodles are the same thing as shirataki noodles.  There are many styles and colors they come in, but flavors and textures are all pretty identical.

Now, let’s get cooking!

Prepping Time 5M

Cook Time 5M.

Total Time 10M

Net Carb/Serv ~1g

Servings 1-2

Ingredients

  • 1 Package Yam Noodles (Shirataki Noodles)
  • 1 Cup Dashi (Bonito Flakes and Water)
  • Sprinkle of Salt
  • 1/4 lb Sliced Beef (for Shabu Shabu)
  • 1/2 Inch of Ginger
  • 1 1/4 tbsp Ponzu (More or Less Depending on Preference)

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) Make 1 cup of dashi.

3) Meanwhile, wash yam noodles in water and set aside (note – yam noodles will have a particular odor, but this is perfectly normal.  It is the preservative and will be gone once washed).

4) Thinly chop green onions and set aside.

5) Finely mince ginger and set aside.

6) Slice beef into 1/2 inch slices and set aside.

7) Bring dashi to boil and add a sprinkle of salt. Once boiling, add noodles and cook for 2-3 minutes or until desired firmness is reached.

8) Add sliced beef into dashi. Cook for 30-45 seconds (note – this will cook the beef to be medium rare. If you prefer well-cooked meat, cook for about 2 minutes).

9) Serve noodles and beef in a bowl.  The soup strength will be personal preference, so here a chart to guide you:

Light – 2 tbsp dashi & 1/2 tbsp ponzu

Medium – 1 1/4 tbsp dashi & 1 1/4 tbsp ponzu

Strong – 1/2 tbsp dashi & 2 tbsp ponzu

10) Top with green onions and ginger. Serve hot/warm.
