Slightly sweet soy flavoured beef mixture on top of cold Udon Noodles. Pour ‘Mentsuyu’ over and enjoy. ‘Mentsuyu’ is a Japanese sauce for cold noodles often used as a dipping sauce, but it can be used as seasoning sauce as well. Find the recipe here.


4 Servings


4 servings Udon Noodles *frozen type recommended
500 to 600g Beef Steaks
1 Onion
1 small piece Ginger *cut into fine strips
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 tablespoon Oil
Spring Onion

  1. Thinly slice Beef Steaks and Onion, cut Ginger into fine strips.
  2. Heat Oil in a frying pan and cook Beef and Onion until Beef changes colour.
  3. Add Mirin and Soy Sauce, and keep cooking until the sauce thickens and almost gone.
  4. Cook Udon as instructed, then rinse in cold water to cool. Drain well. *Note: I recommend frozen type Udon. As the frozen Udon are already cooked, just warm in the boiling water, then cool in cold water.
  5. Place drained cold Udon Noodles in a bowl, cover with Beef mixture, sprinkle some chopped Spring Onion, pour Mentsuyu over and serve.
  6. *Tip Sprinkle some Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Powder) for spiciness.
