Noodle bowls should offer a memorable slurpable experience, and this one delivers. The ramen-style bowl features lean lamb sirloin paired with udon wheat noodles, baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms, snow peas and eggs, all infused with Asian flavors. The star anise, white miso paste and togarashi give the bowl an authentic spin, while the more common ingredients of soy sauce, oyster sauce, ginger and garlic balance the flavor profile.


4½ lb. lamb sirloin, thinly sliced

¼ cup canola oil

3 gal. lamb or beef stock

1 cup + 2 tbsp. lite soy sauce

3 oz. oyster sauce
