1. If you’re gluten free, you can use the Lotus Ramen noodles. They’re made with brown rice and millet and are my family’s go to.

2. Double-check the ingredients of the teriyaki sauce and make sure it’s not made with a wheat-based soy sauce.

We recommend putting a piece of parchment overtop the noodles to prevent freezer burn.

How to Cook Teriyaki Beef and Noodles

It’s so easy to make this recipe for beef noodles.

The first step is to add the carrot and onion to an oiled pan that’s hot and sautee for about a minute, then you’ll add the bell pepper and give it a few extra minutes.

While the veggies are cooking, take your flank steak and slice it up thin.

Add the seasoned steak and sear it for 2-3 minutes.

Then pour in the sauce, give it a good stir and add the noodles.

Toss it all together and serve.

It’s seriously that easy.

Teriyaki Beef Noodles FAQ

Yes, you don’t have to use flank steak or sirloin. This recipe would be delicious with chicken, pork, or tofu for a vegetarian option (I would use extra firm tofu and marinate it beforehand).

For gluten free, we recommend rice and millet ramen but you can use lo mein, chow mein, egg noodles, rice noodles, ramen, etc.
