What is the difference between Beef Yakisoba and Beef Ramen?

These two popular take-out Chinese dishes are similar in taste and ingredients, but the noodles are prepared differently.

  • Fried noodles It means “yakisoba”. The noodles are cooked and pan-fried before adding other ingredients. (This chicken chow mein is a great recipe.)
  • romaine It means “dressed noodles”. The noodles are boiled and mixed with the stir-fried meat and vegetables.

This recipe puts the noodles last, so it will be beef. Hello. (Wow your friends with this one!)

  • The ground beef lomen would be different, but still delicious (for example, it goes well with this Korean beef bowl).
  • If you have the means and opportunity, look for sustainably grass-fed beef. It is generally considered more nutritious and better for the environment than conventionally raised beef.
  • noodles. Cheeky slippery noodles are exquisite! For healthy noodles, I prefer to use whole wheat noodles that are rich in fiber and nutrients (I also use this trick in my stir-fried noodles).
  • garlic + ginger + soy sauce. Stir-fried Big Three.
  • Hisense. This sweet, savory, and umami sauce is just about everything you need to make a wonderfully flavored stir-fry. I always have a jar of it on hand.


Hoisin is widely available at nearly every major grocery store. Look for them in the Asian and international departments. Or use it as a reason to visit your local Asian market.

  • vegetable. My favorite combination of stir-fried vegetables is broccoli, bell peppers, and carrots, which are both colorful and nutritious. The snow peas are also delicious. That means you can make stir-fries with just about any vegetable you have on hand.
  • water chestnut. Although optional, I’ve been obsessed with its crunchiness ever since I ordered Mongolian beef lo-men with my hard-earned money for lunches since I was in high school.
  • roasted sesame oil. Optional, but this adds a professional finished flavor to the main. It’s intensely nutty and savory and you can’t stop eating it.

  • Don’t miss the water chestnut. These are not important ingredients in this easy beef lome noodle recipe, but itself, I think it adds a delicious crunch and makes it even tastier. Even if you don’t usually buy it, please try it once.

  • For easier slicing, place the beef in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up. Cut the beef across the grain into very thin (1/4-inch or less) slices. Cut long slices in half crosswise (each strip should be about 3 inches long).

  • Place beef in medium bowl; Mix baking soda and 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Pour over beef and toss to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes (this will soften them).

Which noodles are best for lomen?

An authentic Beef Ramen recipe calls for Chinese egg noodles made with flour and eggs. However, any long noodles available are fine. Soba (Japanese noodles made with buckwheat flour), whole-grain spaghetti noodles, or whole-grain fettuccine noodles all work well.

Can I use frozen vegetables?

You can use frozen veggies in this recipe, but I find fresh veggies to be more flavorful and textured.

If it is difficult to keep fresh vegetables on hand, try choosing vegetables that last longer, such as cabbage. The beef and cabbage loin noodles are delicious (see this cabbage stir-fry for prep tips).

How to make spicy beef lo mein?

For a little more spiciness, add some red pepper flakes or a touch of sriracha.

Can I add another protein?

of course! If your romaine contains two proteins, you can add another meat, seafood, or vegetarian option. I think that shrimp, salmon, tofu, etc. are especially delicious for beef.
