Steak Stir Fry Noodle Bowls with Homemade Udon Noodles #FantasticalFoodFight

This month’s Fantastical Food Fight nearly snuck up on me!  I almost passed, but once I realized the challenge was pasta, I knew I had to participate.

And I wasn’t going to make boxed noodles either, nope, I decided to make homemade Udon noodles!

I first fell in love with Udon noodles at Noodles and Company and even recreated my favorite dish!

Today, I took it a few steps further and reinvented my favorite dish plus made homemade noodles!

And let me tell you – this recipe was out of this world!  The leftover steak marinade plus beef broth made the perfect cooking liquid/sauce for these noodles!  They were so flavorful, the veggies didn’t need any seasoning – just dump the noodles on top and you have noodle bowl perfection!

Steak Stir Fry Noodle Bowls with Homemade Udon Noodles

1 ½ pounds sirloin steak
½ cup soy sauce (or lite soy sauce)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons mirin or other sweet wine
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons freshly ground ginger
½ teaspoon sriracha

To Finish
4 cups beef broth
Udon Noodles, see below
Stir fry veggies, I used mushrooms, broccoli, asparagus, & yellow bell pepper

Udon Noodles
Recipe from Steamy Kitchen

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
¾-1 cup warm water, as needed

Whisk together the marinade ingredients.  Pour over steak.  Place in a zipper bag and marinate for 3-4 hours.

To make the noodles,
Mix together the flour and salt.  Add ¾ cup water and stir.  Begin kneading until the dough comes together (add more water as needed).

Knead the dough until to forms a smooth ball, about 5 minutes.  Wrap in plastic wrap for 1-5 hours.

To roll by hand:
Roll the dough to an even 1/8-inch thickness.

To use a pasta roller, set the roller to the widest setting.  Divide the dough into 3-4 pieces.  Flour generously and feed through the pasta roller.

For either method, dust the rolled dough with flour, then fold in thirds (like a letter).  Use a sharp knife to cut into 1/8 – ¼ -inch strips.  Unroll the noodles.  Cook immediately.

To make the stir fry,
Remove steaks from marinade and cook on a grill until they reach desired doneness.  Reserve marinade.

Place the beef broth and reserved marinade in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. 

Slowly add the noodles to the broth, stirring to make sure they don’t clump.  Note: there will be very little liquid compared to normal pasta cooking conditions.  This is ok.  Also, starch from the noodles will naturally thicken the broth.  Cook the noodles for 7-10 minutes (depending on thickness).

While noodles and steak cook, stir fry the veggies in another pan.

To serve, place vegetables in the bottom of a bowl.  Top with Udon noodles, sauce, and strips of steak.


  1. I am SO impressed that you made your own noodles! I can't wait to try this.

  2. I totally love that you made your own noodles! That whole bowl looks lipsmacking...

  3. I was hoping there would be some homemade noodle recipes for the Food Fight because I have been wanting to make homemade noodles for so long and I trust y'all to not steer me wrong :) This stir fry looks fabulous!
