IT'S THE WEEKEND and you know what that means! It's time to kickoff the first ever Stir-Friday here at The G-Free Guide!!! Today I present to you harusame, or mung bean noodles. They're a traditional Japanese noodle used for many different dishes. You can add them to stir-fry, soups, and spring rolls. They're usually made from mung bean starch, and are completely translucent when cooked. They're so fun to play with in the kitchen! Now, onward to the good stuff!
1 lb Beef
3 c Fresh Veggies
1 package Harusame (Mung Bean Noodles)
3 tbs San-J Teriyaki Sauce
1 tbs San-J Tamari
1tsp Rice Vinegar
Sriracha, Salt, and Pepper (optional/to-taste)
*Disclaimer: I don't measure any spices or sauces when I cook, so everything is a general "ball park" estimate. Add or remove ingredients based on personal preference! :)
Use a LARGE pan or wok to cook this in! First and foremost, brown the beef with 1 tbs each of the teriyaki and tamari sauce. Add sriracha, salt, and pepper as well if you'd like. Cook at med/high heat. Once finished, drain and lower heat to medium.
Now you get to make some harusame!!! I used Eden (wheat free) Mung Bean Noodles for this recipe. Simply add noodles to boiling water for 4 minutes and that's it!
***REMEMBER: when buying any product, always make sure to carefully read the label and call the company to check for any gluten ingredients, hidden gluten, or cross contamination that may not be listed.***
Dish out the harusame on a plate, add stir-fried meat and veggies, and drizzle a little bit of the teriyaki sauce over the top--delicious!
