Ready In:




  • Cut beef into very thin strips. In a bowl, combine beef with soy sauce. (I added some crushed red pepper -- love the spice).
  • In a large saucepan over high heat, bring stock, ginger and garlic to a boil. Add vermicelli; boil for 2 minutes or until softened. Add beef, carrots and cabbage.
  • Return to a boil; cook for another 2 minutes. Add bean sprouts and cook for 1 minute or until heated through.
  • Ladle into bowls; garnish with cilantro and chopped green onions. Drizzle with sesame oil, if desired.

  1. Yum, Yum Yum! Got a Rib Eye on sale and sliced it real thin. Used Udon Noodles and doubled the Garlic and Ginger. Added Red Pepper Flakes like another reviewer in the Soy Sauce Marinade. It was AWESOME! DO NOT Omit the Sesame Oil, it MAKES IT! Tasted like the soup I make with leftovers after a big Shabu Shabu meal but in minutes and without having to go full Shabu! Great Recipe!
  2. This was very, very good and will definitely be made again and again. My husband is still raving about it and we had it last week. :) Thanks for sharing!
  3. This is a wonderful beef soup full of Asian flavor. I used very good quality thinly sliced beef normally used for shabu shabu ie rib eye beef for this soup. My husband who is not really that fond of soup except wonton, ramen, etc really thought this was an outstanding soup. Napa cabbage was used and right before serving squeezed a wedge of lime. Did not use 8 C beef stock and only used 2 (14 1/2 oz) beef broth along with water to come to 8 C liquid. Thank you mama smurf for posting this recipe. Made for Unrated Asian Recipe Tag.
  4. Awesome! Only added mushrooms. Was looking to make Shabu Shabu and found this recipe. Made it in my electric Breville wok. I did buy Shabu Shabu style beef at local asian market and it worked great. Used super fine noodles. My sister's who eat gluten free loved it!!
  5. Really good!!! Added spice, more soy sauce, and lime juice to the final product. Delicious!


  1. We really liked this (including our 13 month old baby)--the flavors aren't complex, but the soup is flavorful. We used tiny shell pasta instead of noodles, did not add bean sprouts (didn't have any), and used a healthy tsp of homemade ginger/garlic paste in place of individual ginger & garlic. Thanks for a quick and tasty soup that was super easy to put together and feed to my houseful of people who are feeling under the weather! :)


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
