These beef and broccoli teriyaki noodle bowls are so easy to make, and a great alternative to take out!
Mmm…we made the best beefy broccoli teriyaki noodle bowls the other night! I was in a P.F. Chang’s kind of mood, but didn’t want to bother with ordering and going to pick it up, so we made our own awesome teriyaki beef dinner. It was so good.
These beef and broccoli teriyaki noodle bowls were pretty easy and quick to put together.
You just need to soak the rice noodles ahead of time. If you haven’t used rice noodles before, it can be a little tricky getting them to turn out right. After struggling for years with rice noodles, I finally have a system that works for me so that they don’t get all sticky and starchy. Here’s what I do: I pour water in a bowl, and microwave it until it’s very hot. Then I submerge the rice noodles in the hot water and let them soak for about 45 minutes. Right before I’m ready to add them to the recipe, I microwave the noodles in the water for three minutes. Then I add them to the pan with the meat, veggies, and sauce. I know there are other methods of preparing rice noodles, but this way works for me, and they are perfectly delicious every time!
I also recently discovered a gluten free teriyaki sauce that I LOVE. This sauce by San-J is so good. It has a great flavor, and I don’t feel that it’s too salty, which is often the case with bottled sauces.

Beef and Broccoli Teriyaki Noodle Bowls.
- 4 ounces thin rice noodles rice sticks
- 1 onion thinly sliced
- 1.5 pounds skirt steak sliced thin against the grain
- 3 cups broccoli florets
- ¾ cup gluten free teriyaki sauce
- ¼ cup tamari sauce
- 1 ¼ teaspoon dried ginger
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Fill a large bowl with water, and microwave it until the water is very hot, about 3 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and submerge the rice noodles in the water. Let soak for about 45 minutes.
Once the noodles have been soaking for 30 minutes, start to prepare the beef:
In a large skillet, saute the sliced onions and the beef over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until done. Combine the gluten free teriyaki sauce, the tamari sauce, the ginger, and the red pepper flakes in a small bowl, and whisk together. Pour the sauce into the skillet. Stir well.
Add the broccoli to the skillet.
Microwave the noodles in water for 2-3 minutes. Drain. Add the noodles to the skillet with the broccoli, beef, and sauce. Stir to coat.
That’s all there is to it! You just have to plan ahead a little bit in order to soak the rice noodles, but otherwise this is a pretty quick dinner to make!
These beef and broccoli teriyaki noodle bowls are:
- gluten free
- a great alternative to take out
- full of flavor

What are you eating for dinner these days?
Perfect way to use up the left over steak I had in the fridge. No idea on the cut of the steak but it worked perfectly. This was a complete surprise with how much my family loved it. Full of flavor and I threw in some brown sugar for a little sweetness.
You’ve become my go to for recipe ideas because they haven’t let down yet.
It had a lot of potential but it was too salty for us. The flavor was good though. I got the ingredients you suggested but what can I do to keep the salt content down?
Try using low sodium tamari sauce. You can also use a smaller amount of the tamari – that’s the source of the salt.
so as an essential worker this past year i havent had a lot of time to cook for my now 7yr old. I found this recipe and was super excited to try it. Everything was going great I used a whole cup of teriyaki instead of adding tamari and i added garlic, BUT when i went to use the red pepper i didnt notice the lid was not on all the way so i would say about a teaspoon was added >< My girl loves spicy food and broccoli so i figured it would be ok. I thought it was delicious but the only thing she would eat was the meat :( i promised her next time i wont make it so spicy.
The only thing I would say is remember to steam your broccoli first so it’s not almost totally raw when you finish cooking! A nice meal to eat when you have multiple dietary restrictions.
Made this last night, we all loved it! We couldn’t find skirt steak so got flank steak and first cooked it on the grill, after it rested, we sliced it and added to the pan when we added the broccoli. Thank you, we will be making it again soon!
What if I can’t find skirt steak? Recommendations to use instead?
Flank steak would also work!
That looks amazing! Can I add carrots to it?
Mmmmm soooooo good!
Wow! Lots of flavor. I did steam my broccoli for 5 minutes before adding them. And, next time, I will break up the noodles more, before soaking them. I did use a different brand as yours was not available. Four thumbs up (my husband an me). Thanks.

This beef and broccoli teriyaki was the bomb-o-licious! Got the thumbs up from picky 9-year old and satisfied the whole family. Perfect combo of the sauce spices. I used brown rice noodles so didn’t have the whole pre-prep on that step which made this even quicker to the table. Thank you so much for coming up with this super recipe. I’m wheat and dairy free these days.
Yay! I’m so glad you liked it!
noodle bowls sound so fun! awesome recipe!
Yum! Now this is comfort food in a bowl. :) These noodles look 1000x better than takeout, Kelly! Can’t wait to try. Pinned!
Thanks, Sarah! And thanks for pinning!
Chinese takeout was always my fave growing up and I stopped eating the noodle bowls when I stopped eating gluten. So I’m absolutely psyched to see a GF version of a classic delish dish!! I love rice noodles and don’t know why I haven’t gotten more adventurous with them. Well played, love!! :D
Thanks, Julia! I love rice noodles, and need to use them more often, too!
Natalie @ Tastes Lovely
Well this looks even better than takeout! And much better for you. I’ve actually never cooked with rice noodles before, so thanks for the tip!
Ooh, try them, Natalie, they are so yummy! And cheap!
Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits
I’m in such a stir-fry noodles kind of mood right now! Definitely need to try this!
Give it a try, Lisa! :)

Isn’t is awesome when you can make your own version of restaurant food you love?
This sounds so good.
