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!
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.
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! :)

My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot. We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California. It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish! 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 kids...my angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins. 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=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/4th%20of%20July/4811_126789.jpg 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. <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=src value=http://w490.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://w490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/d065f045.pbw /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/antbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href=http://s596.photobucket.com/albums/tt47/emakki25/?action=view?t=banner1.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i596.photobucket.com/albums/tt47/emakki25/banner1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src=http://i712.photobucket.com/albums/ww129/pneuma2/swaps/no.jpg?t=1248399623 alt=/ /><img src=http://i490.photobucket.com/albums/rr266/Acadia/Banners/WineSwapBanner2009-1.jpg alt=/ /><a href=http://photobucket.com target=_blank><img src=http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/4811_176478.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa130/nowsonexitmusic/unratedpart.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y227/vjuhl/MEPcookathon.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/BBG-AMbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj294/QueenBee49444/CookbookParticipationAugust2009.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/AMBadgeGenTP2009.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/3Craze-E.jpg border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i425.photobucket.com/albums/pp340/northwestgal/redbannercopy.jpg border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
