Niku Udon is a simple Japanese noodle soup dish made with udon noodles served on a rich dashi stock made with dried bonito flakes and kombu then topped with thin slices of seasoned beef.
If you haven’t tried udon noodles then you are missing a lot on life, the texture on these noodles is something to be reckoned. Bouncy, chewy and soft its one addictive noodle unique to most. Usually served on simple soup dishes, it’s so good it does not need fancy ingredients at all, it can be enjoyed just with a simple broth of a good dashi stock or with additional toppings like our post today with some beef.
I had my fair share on trying out different establishments in most of the countries I visited and for me nothing still beats the ones I tried in Hawaii, really unforgettable. I also have some bad experiences so it really all boils down to the quality of noodles. So, if you are making one at home from experience the best ones are the frozen ones or the dried ones, the pre-packaged soft ones are not chewy at all, at least for the ones I tried. How about you do you have a preferred udon brand?
