Teens Cooking: Episode 2: Noodle Soup with Beef and Tofu

Two days after episode 1 Tara took a turn. Tara decided to take a different approach.

Tara has done some cooking in the last few years and  has been introduced to many different Asian foods.  She decided to do something easy but very good.  Seeing as she did this off the top of her head there is not really a recipe to share but you should be able to get the gist of it.

She started with 12 cups of water in a pot.  When the water began to simmer she added beef bouillon cubes, and some garlic and onion powder.  In the meantime she cut up some cabbage, beef and firm tofu.  Once the broth was boiling she added the beef.  About 5 minutes later she added a package of long noodles.  When the Noodles were about half cooked the tofu was added.  The last 3 minutes cabbage was added. 

Tara prepared a dipping sauce made of Hoisin sauce, soy sauce and Sriracha (aka Rooster sauce, an Asian hot sauce).  She instructed us to eat the beef and tofu by taking them from our bowl and dipping them in the sauce.  It was simple but good and was enjoyed by all.
