Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

A flavoursome beef soup slow cooked over 4 hours with spices served with handmade noodles and tender pieces of beef. This recipe is time consuming but not too bad because the broth is not from bones. Total prepping and cooking time is about 2 hours. For a hearty dish like this is not bad at all instead it’s worth it.
