WATCH: How to make short rib & udon noodle bowl with J'Something
J’Something’s easy-to-create short rib and udon noodle bowl is a favourite Asian take-away dish which you can make at home for family and friends.
“I don't think my obsession with Asian food will ever come to an end, so I enjoyed creating this really tasty short rib and udon noodle bowl with some Castle Milk Stout – just delicious,” said J’Something.
Slow cooking the short rib in the stout beer helps to tenderise it beautifully. Chewy udon noodles have a mild flavour that's wonderful with the delicate spices in this rich beef broth.
