Rubbery Udon Noodles can go well with many different flavours. Today I cooked Beef Stroganoff using leftover Beef and Sour Cream, and added Udon Noodles to it. It was a surprisingly good match. Pickled Cucumber is absolutely recommended as I always add it to my ‘Super Easy Beef Stroganoff’. If you don’t have Udon Noodles, Pasta is a perfect substitute for this dish. Gnocchi would be great.
