Beef Noodle Soup

Richard’s adoration for this complex dish and a loss of Taiwanese eating places in New York City stimulated him to best this beef noodle soup recipe, which calls for constructing flavors with ingredients like ginger, goji berries, ginseng, cinnamon, licorice, a lot of soybean pastes, fuji apples, rock sugar, and extra. This fragrant soup also features braised beef shank and crunchy pickled mustard veggies.
