‘U’ was tough. There are very few recipes out there for ‘U’ that meet our requirements.
Luckily, this alphabet challenge has given us a great deal of experience in cooking, and with that, confidence in what we like and how to cook things, so we decided to make up our own recipe.
This meal has no name, but it results in a spicy meat dish served on udon noodles.
So here’s how to do it (some measurements are more of a guess than anything):
- 2 packets of udon noodles
- Some fillet steak (as much as you’d like)
- 1 tsp chilli oil
- 4 T teriyaki sauce
- 2 T rice wine
- a splash of white wine (sav blanc for example)
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1/4 cup of peanut butter
- 1 T of ginger
- 1 T of crushed garlic
- some carrots, sliced
- some cabbage, sliced
- some bean sprouts
Mix the chilli oil, teriyaki sauce, wine, rice wine, peanut butter, ginger and garlic together.
Chop the meat into chunks and marinade in the sauce for a few hours.
Stir fry the meat until nearly done, and then add the noodles (udon noodles do not need to be thoroughly cooked), and then add the carrot, cabbage, and bean sprouts.
The vegetables only need a minute or so to warm them up a bit, but essentially they will be raw and crunchy.
Serve! This might be a bit hot due to the chilli oil, but it adds a nice zing.
