Udon-Beef Noodle Bowl

I can't believe it's already August.  I know time is flying by when it's another month of the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club.  My four other Supper Club friends want to share another great menu with you this month.  The theme for August is, "A Visit to Chinatown".  

Making Asian-style food at home always tastes so good and flavorful.  Who needs take-out when you can make these dishes at home.  I made Cooking Light's Udon-Beef Noodle Bowl.  What a satisfying and comforting meal.  Really delicious.

Note:  I used more beef than the recipe called for, a little over a pound.  I also couldn't find udon noodles in my grocery store so I used dried lo mein noodles which I found in the Asian section of my store.  Spaghetti can be substituted as well.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

What did my other Cooking Light buddies bring to our Chinatown menu?

Sandi (Whistlestop Cafe Cooking) made Asian Turkey Cabbage Cups
Val (More than Burnt Toast) brought Salt-Baked Chicken
Shelby (The Life & Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch) made Ma Po Tofu
Patsy (Food, Family and Friends) made Pork & Stir Fried Veggies in Spicy Sauce
Jamie (me from Mom's Cooking Club) made Udon-Beef Noodle Bowl

Hope you enjoyed this month's menu.  I'll be back soon with more recipes and don't forget to check back in September for another meal with the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club.   


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  Udon Noodles are thick wheat flour noodles and are very popular in Japanese cuisine and used often in hot soup.

Jamie, I am certain Grumpy would love this one. He told me last night I needed to cut the spicy food. (so sad for me) He is a big beef lover! Thanks for joining us and bringing this delicious dish!

Your beef noodle bowl looks yummy~ something I always order.
I have had computer issues all week, my post is sorely lacking any photos~ but the recipe is fabulous!
It would go well with the rest of our trip to chinatown!

I love Udon noodles, I find them sometimes. more so at Whole Foods or Fresh Market.

This looks SO good, and totally comforting. I have never tried making something like this at home. I would love to try it. YUM Jamie! I love cooking Asian at home, what a fun theme for the club!
