BeefNoodle

It’s been over a decade since I was last in Asia – and yet, I can still taste Taiwan’s Beef noodle. Hailed as the country’s national dish, Beef Noodle is more than just the sum of its names; it’s a dish with a long national heritage; packed to bursting with exquisite and sumptuous flavours that belie its simple ingredients.

Made using red braised beef – where brisket and shank are slow cooked in soy, star anise, black cardamom, cassia, fennel seeds and often, a dash of Sichuan pepper – the soft and tender, melt in the mouth beef is accompanied by a flavourful, umami beef broth and freshly made noodles. It looks simple, but it’s a hearty, satisfying flavour explosion.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
