The Food Fix Episode 3: Colleen’s Noodle Bowls!Jump to Recipe
What’s up VIDEO LOVERS? It’s time again for another episode of The Food Fix! I really had a fun time making these!
In this episode I chat with Colleen. She has a problem which I think will resonate with a ton of people: making different meals for different people. She is a vegetarian, but has a meat-eater husband and a picky child. It can make dinner a stressful situation, especially on weeknights!
Watch the episode to check out my quick interview with her and also learn how to make spicy noodle bowls that you can customize easily and quickly!
If you want the recipe and don’t want to take notes… here’s the printed version:
To start broth, add all the ingredients to a pot and bring to a simmer. Keep the ginger and garlic pretty thick so they are easy to strain out later. After the broth is simmering, turn heat down to low and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Keep warm until serving.
For the portobello and steak, you can do both in the oven or on the grill. Season the mushroom with olive oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper. For the flank steak, rub the steak with the salt, pepper, chili powder, and brown sugar.
If you are grill, heat grill to medium-high then grill steak for 5-6 minutes per side until it’s medium rare (135 degrees F.) in the thickest part. The mushroom will need about the same amount of time (5-6 minutes per side).
If you are baking, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the mushroom until it’s tender, about 15 minutes. For the steak, sear the steak in a skillet with a drizzle of oil for 2-3 minutes per side. Then transfer to the oven and finish baking until it’s medium rare.
Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package. Rinse them with cold water to stop the cooking and toss them with some olive oil or sesame oil to keep them from sticking. (You can cook these in advance).
To make the bowls, divide noodles and spoon broth over the top. Garnish with sliced mushrooms and/or steak along with any veggie toppings you want. Chow down!

Hello! My name is Nick Evans and I write and manage Macheesmo. I started Macheesmo 11 years ago when I was just learning my way around the kitchen. I love to cook and love everything food-related, but I have no formal training. These days I focus on fast, accessible recipes with the occasional “reach” recipe!
I’ve posted almost 2,000 recipes on Macheesmo. For each one, I do my best to give full explanations of what I did and tips on what I’d do differently next time. I’ll bring up the tricky parts and the easy parts.
I hope you can find something and cook something!
