You guys asked and we listened, here's Kevin's no nonsense beef noodle soup recipe in which I had to verbally extract from because he never follows a specific recipe - because he's just that talented and I'm just that lucky :). His notes in retrospect are that he would have added rice wine vinegar in the broth and green onions to the aromatic cooking step. Forgive me as I'm no food blogger, so here goes nothing! Be sure to let us know what you think, what your feedback is, and enjoy!


This recipe makes about 4 servings



  • 2 cups flour

  • About a cup of water

  • Extra flour for kneading


  1. Add salt to the water

  2. Slowly pour the water into the flour and knead the dough into a ball

  3. Put plastic wrap around it and let it rest for 20 minutes

  4. Knead your dough and add flour as necessary so that dough isn’t sticky

  5. Roll out your dough to about the thickness of a pancake and cut into strips

  6. Pull the strip gently apart from end to end so that it slowly elongates. Then hold at the edges and gently jump rope with the noodle until you get the length and thickness of your choice.
