My mom has long been known as the chef of the household (hence the name Noms From Mom). But when it comes to the Taiwanese classic dish, beef noodle soup (牛肉面), my dad reigns supreme in the Jeng family household. This recipe, now named after him, has taken him years to perfect. It’s not a quick dish (nor should it be), but as an expert beef noodle soup consumer, I can tell you it is worth the wait.
Growing up, I was never a huge fan of noodle soup or really any clear broth soup. What a fool I was. Now I make or eat noodle soups any chance I get… like today’s lunch – this homemade Vietnamese pho.
…and the clear winner is my belly.
