Beef with Udon Noodles

Beef with Udon Noodles I love leftovers. I know they get a bad rap but I think that just stems from people not being creative with what they have in the fridge. Leftovers have the ability to turn into something totally new. It’s all about how you view the food before you.

I was rummaging around in the freezer earlier this week when I spied a package of leftover prime rib roast chunks.  We had that for Christmas dinner.

Knowing that I needed to use that right now or it was history, I pulled the package out and started brain storming what I could make.

I asked Scott if he would rather have stir fry or an Asian inspired noodle dish.  He went with noodles and Beef with Udon Noodles was born.

It was easy to put together, the longest prep was waiting for the water to boil for the noodles.

I cooked one 8oz package of udon noodles first, drained and let those hang out while I sauteed up some chopped:

  • Carrots
  • Red Onion
  • Broccoli

The leftover prime rib was already in chunks that I then cut up into smaller pieces to make them more bite size.

I created a sauce like the one for Pad Thai.  Once the veggies were warmed through, I added in the beef and noodles.  Poured the sauce over top, tossed and served.

Beef with Udon Noodles.Not bad for some leftovers, right?  Bonus, it was a weeknight meal that came together really quickly.

See, leftovers don’t have to be boring.  Now what are you going to make with your leftovers this week?

 

One thought on “Beef with Udon Noodles

  1. I’m all for leftovers – if I have leftovers in my fridge, it probably means my lunch is made for the next day. This then means I get to sleep in the next morning for a few extra minutes because I don’t need to make my lunch. Therefore leftovers = winning!
