Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 32 oz beef broth divided
  • ¼ cup soy sauce sliced green onions, peanuts for toppings
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger powder
  • 2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lb raw medium shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 8 oz Udon noodles
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy is fine, if you prefer. Use all-natural peanut butter for the best flavor.
  • 1 cup sliced cabbage sub mushrooms, thinly sliced carrots, spinach, or other favorite veggies

Instructions

  • Heat oil on medium heat in large pot.
  • Add chopped onion.
  • Cook on medium heat until onion is translucent. About 5 minutes.
  • Add 2 cups of broth, soy sauce, pepper, salt, red pepper flakes, garlic, and ginger powder.
  • Bring to low boil and remove from heat.
  • Add raw shrimp, noodles, cabbage, peanut butter, and remaining broth. (NOTE: if using cooked shrimp add the shrimp after the cabbage has wilted, just to heat it)
  • Return to heat and heat just until hot (do not let boil), the shrimp is cooked, and the cabbage is wilted.
  • Serve with a drizzle of chili oil and fresh cilantro.

Notes

NOTE:
  1. Use reduced sodium soy sauce to cut the sodium levels down. 
  2. Taste your soup at the end and if you find it bitter...add a bit of sugar or honey. Broths and peanut butter greatly differ in the sugar + salt they they contain. Most natural honey does not contain sugar and yet the more inexpensive peanut butters contain a great deal. Be sure to taste and adjust!
