Aromatic rice noodle beef with green onions, soy sauce, and sesame seeds, this bowl is really quick and delightful, not to mention quite figure-friendly.

Aromatic Beef with Green Onions

As I’ve said in the previous green onion posts, we all like green onions in this house but eat them mostly raw. I’ve never used them much in cooking before and when cooking for this series, I was really amazed at how much more one can actually do with scallions.

Although I have all my recipes ready for posting now and I don’t really need to cook much with green onions anymore, I keep finding new recipes and getting new ideas about yet another way to include the onions in different kind of dishes.

Right now, I am making these amazing roasted green onions with polenta again.

How to keep green onions fresh?

Before I get to the rice noodle beef, I wanted to tell you a few words about the way to keep green onions fresh for a longer time. I found this on my own over the years of continuously buying green onions and getting annoyed at the green parts wilting way too quickly.

  • Clean them, removing the “hairy” top and about 2 cm/ 0.8-inches of the greens, how much of the greens you need to remove depends on how fresh they look. If they look great, remove only a little, if they are past their prime, remove more.
  • I always freeze these scraps and use them when making broths or stocks.
  • Wash the stalks very well and pack them in a double layer of kitchen paper without drying them first.
  • Keep them in the fridge, but not in the vegetable compartment, for some reason that place doesn’t agree much with scallions, due to the increased humidity, they start sprouting after a few days.
  • I keep them in the lower part of the refrigerator, over the vegetable compartment.
  • This way they will retain their freshness for at least 4-5 days.

How to make the beef noodle bowl?

  • Mix vegetable broth, soy sauce, sherry, Chinese 5-spice powder, grated ginger, and garlic in a larger pan.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for about 3 minutes.
  • Add chopped onions, cook for 2 minutes. Add beef and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the sugar snap peas and cook for another 4 minutes or so until the beef and the sugar snap peas are tender.
  • In the meantime, cook the rice noodles according to the packet’s instructions, I had to soak mine for 5 minutes in boiling water. Drain and stir in the sesame oil.

Serve

  • Divide the noodles between 4 deep bowls and spoon the beef and green onion mixture over them.
  • The dish is quite soupy, so be sure to use deep bowls.
  • Sprinkle with the roasted sesame seeds.

Delicious! I stir fry beef with green onions a lot for dinner. Sometimes, I do it with shrimp and it’s also good with eggs, kind of scrambled together. I need to buy some green onions!

Shrimps!!! Mmm! That’s a great idea, I think I would like that even more than the beef!
