Beef and Chicken Vermicelli Noodle Bowl

I felt like it was time for a new recipe again! Justin and I have been eating a lot of vermicelli noodle bowls lately, and while enjoying one last week, I realized just how easy it would be to make these at home! So I ventured to find a wicked recipe and make these bad boys at home. It turned out so well. I think I found a new staple recipe!

First things first, you have to whip up your marinade for the meat. It takes fish sauce, Worcestershire and soy sauce, ginger garlic and brown sugar. Mix all together and let your meat marinade for 24 hours, at least!

Here is the marinade, all ready to go.

And here is the steak, already cut up in tasty marinading pieces!

Here is the chicken and beef after sitting in the marinade for a night and day in the fridge, now ready to be cooked up for the noodle bowls!

I cooked them at the same time in the skillet.

While the meat is cooking, cook up the vermicelli noddles. These noodles cook so fast! All you have to do with them, really, is quickly dunk them in boiling water and then they are done. Don’t leave them too long, because they will become very mushy.

The next thing to put together is the dipping sauce to pour over the bowl. Very simple and very delicious. Fish sauce, lemon juice, sugar and Thai chili paste.

Assemble your bowls by adding some julienne cucumbers , lettuce, bean sprouts and chopped peanuts. Pour sauce over top of the bowl and enjoy, a lot! Make extras, you will want leftovers!!

    Yum! I just found your blog and the first post in one of my favourite meals. Looks delicious, maybe I’ll try making for myself instead of paying someone else to make it for me. 😉
