Recipe: Add Asian Flair with One Pot Broth


Nothing can impress a date more than cooking, and you can amp up said impression by pulling off an international dish.

This Asian-themed soup accomplishes both. Most importantly, it needs simple ingredients and is easy to prepare.

One Pot Beef and Noodle Broth


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. flank steak sliced thin (Put beef in freezer for about 20 minutes before slicing. Cut beef against the grain.)
  • 4 cups Bok Choy chopped
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • Low salt, if desired.
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 oz wide rice noodles
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
