Recipe: Teriyaki Beef Noodles (the cheat’s way)

Teriyaki beef noodles

Mr M and I are huge Wagamama fans and whenever we go I have two favourite dishes: the Chicken Katsu curry (what’s not to like?) and the Teriyaki beef noodles. I have tried and failed on many occasions to mimic the Katsu curry – no matter whether I make my own sauce or buy a ready-made one, my imitation is not a patch on the Wagamama classic.

Luckily, I’ve had more luck with the Teriyaki beef noodles since coming across the Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Sauce during my latest online grocery shop. This sauce is most definitely the most authentic I’ve used (and I’ve tried a few) and creates a super tasty and healthy dish in minutes. Meat eaters can get their fill on the steak – I use two of the sirloins from Tesco at £3 each, and those who like their fresh veg can add whatever they like to their heart’s content.

I like my noodles spicy (whatever the recipe) but if you have a more delicate palate, leave out the chili.


Teriyaki beef noodles
Serves 2…


  • 300g beef sirloin or rump cut into stripsLee Kum Kee Teriyaki sauce
  • 200g medium egg noodles
  • 4 handfuls spinach leaves
  • 2 spring onions cut into lengths
  • Thumb sized piece of fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • large handful of beansprouts
  • 1 red chili
  • 2 tblsp Lee Kum Kee Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1 tblsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • Handful of chopped coriander to serve


Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Heat oil in a hot wok, add the ginger for 30 seconds, followed by the beef, beansprouts, spring onion and chili. Stir-fry everything for 2 minutes. Add the spinach and the soy sauce and cook just until the spinach wilts. Add the noodles, sesame seeds, Teriyaki sauce and give everything a good stir. Sprinkle with coriander to serve.

    This looks so good, I really want to try it now (and try out the Wagamama version too). I’m a sucker for anything noodles and any kind of stir fry! 🙂

    I love Wagamama’s too! Chicken Katsu curry is my favourite (or perhaps the really spicy prawn dish that I can’t remember the name of). If you like Katsu curry and recommend this, then I should give it a try. It looks really tasty. I’ll have to track down some teriyaki sauce though.

      Thanks Becky! I always think it’s useful to get a recommendation on sauces – there are so many and half of them don’t taste anything like the read macoy! Thanks for hosting x
