Liked it! If you haven't tried shirataki (tofu and yam)'ll be happily surprised! They taste great and are low in carbs and calories. I used pork instead of beef and wasn't skilled enough to get it paper thin. This is a fast and easy recipe, with good flavor if you like soy sauce but VERY salty, even using light soy. I think some water or low sodium broth mixed in the sauce would help cut down on the saltiness.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the noodles in a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 1 minute, separating the noodles with chopsticks.
  2. Drain and cut into 10 cm lengths.
  3. Bring the sauce, sugar and mirin to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the beef and cook just until the meat changes colour.
  4. Strain the beef over a heatproof bowl and return the sauce to the same saucepan.
  5. Add the onions and noodles to the pan and simmer for 3 minutes or until the onion softens.
  6. Return the beef, add the ginger juice and heat through.
  7. Divide the rice among serving bowls. Top with beef and noodles and about 1/4 cup of the sauce.
