Fortune Noodle Company
I was invited by the folks at Fortune Noodle Company to participate in their most recent blogger recipe challenge, “SOUP”. The contest involved the creation of inspired soup recipes using Fortune’s Udon noodles, which come in 3 delicious flavors: Original, Chicken and Mushroom. I chose the Original flavor for my recipe; Shoyu Steak and Egg Udon with Ginger Chili Broccolini.
Inspired by Fortune Noodle Original Flavor
Inspired by the Fortune Noodle Original Shoyu Flavor, I utilized half of the included flavor packet, combined with a touch of salt and pepper to season a 15-ounce New York Strip steak. The steak is then seared to a medium temperature in sesame oil. I also decided to toss a few spring onions in the pan to add fresh flavor and color before finishing the steak with a splash of soy sauce.
The broccolini receives a flare of spice from fresh ginger and sliced Serrano chili’s, which is then balanced by the creaminess of boiled eggs. In order to create a rich brown broth, I added a cup of beef stock in addition to a cup of water with the remaining Shoyu season packet and of course, the Fortune Udon Noodles.
My Shoyu Steak and Egg Udon with Ginger Chili Broccolini is the perfect meal for a cold winter night!
Chase Away the Winter Blues
The best way to chase away the winter blues is with my mouthwatering and delicious soup. It’s easy to recreate, great for just one or your entire family.
