Sesame beef noodle salad

Sesame beef noodles

I have been neglecting my blog a bit lately with good reason. A new job! It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun. When everything is new, there is just not that much time left over to be creative. Hopefully soon I can devote more time to composing dinners likes this one: quick, simple  and full of flavor.

  • 400 gr rice noodles
