What type of noodles is Taiwanese Beef Noodle?

Well, to begin with, there is plenty of variety of beef noodle soup throughout the whole world. To name a few, there is this Vietnamese Pho, Hong Kong Beef Brisket Noodle, Tomato Beef Noodle, and lots more (my craves for beef noodle is real), the Taiwanese version is the red braised soup base.

What is the Key for a Good Beef Soup?

What does it take to make the best beef noodle? Of course, the raw ingredients, more importantly, the beef quality itself, the quality of the soup all depends on the quality of the meat. Whereas in Taiwan, their local beef quality is actually pretty good. If you could not get your hands on Taiwanese beef (I think they export their beef abroad), worry not, I made this recipe with USDA beef, which I think is easily accessible to many people is many countries in the world.

Best Red Braised Beef Noodle

Red braised or “Hong Shao”, is when soy sauce is added during the process of making the soup and this red braised beef noodle soup was invented in Taiwan. I did some research to find out what makes Taiwanese Beef Soup Noodle different from the others? To my findings besides using good quality meats, they actually added a little bit of tomato sauce into the soup which makes it slightly red in color and also improves overall aroma!

In order to find out the best recipe, I actually went around asking my Taiwanese friends and they shared their family recipe with me, which I combine all of it into a master recipe below!
