Shaking Beef Bowl

Shaking Beef Bowl 5.00/5 (5 votes)

My favorite this week! But, if you’re unfamiliar with the ‘pleasant’ aroma of fish sauce and oyster sauce, don’t let them discourage you. My kids have refused to eat this meal while I was preparing it. But at the dinner table, every plate is licked clean! That ‘stinky’ marinade makes one heck of a good meal!

Shaking Beef Bowl



  • 1 pound boneless beef sirloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grape tomato, halved
  • 2 cups baby mixed greens
  • 2 carrot, julienned
  • 8 radish, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, torn
  • 10 oz rice noodles, Chinese egg noodles, or ramen noodles (seasoning pack discarded)
  • Marinade
  • 5 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Dressing
  • 1/4 cup water, warm
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoon chile garlic sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil


  1. Trim fat from sirloin and cut into 1” cubes.
  2. Combine beef and marinade ingredients in a resealable bag and let marinate for about 30 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and reserve.
  4. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large skillet (I used my cast iron) over high heat.
  6. When it begins to shimmer (and slightly smoke) add beef. Do not overcrowd the pan. You may have to cook in two batches. Let the meat sear, untouched, for a couple of minutes. Flip and cook for a minute of two more. Repeat with remaining meat.
  7. Plate noodle, greens, cilantro, and vegetables.
  8. Top with beef.
  9. Drizzle with dressing.

VEGETARIAN TIP: Replace the meat with cubed firm tofu.

GLUTEN FREE MODIFICATIONS: Use rice noodles. Substitute tamari for soy sauce and the oyster sauce.
