#1234: Sainsbury’s Barbecue Beef Flavour Instant Noodles

Being the four consecutive numbers that 1, 2, 3 and 4 are, I thought I’d try something a little weird today. This was sent to me by Joe B. of Nottingham, UK – thanks! Barbecue beef, eh? Let’s check it out!

The back of the package (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself. To prepare, you can either microwave or cook on the hob (stovetop). I prefer the latter. Add seasoning to 250ml boiling water, and then break the block into 3 or 4 pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes.

The noodle block.

Seasoning sachet.

Has a very smoky scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed beef mixed with a little Sweet Baby Ray’s Original barbecue sauce, sweet onion and bell pepper. The noodles aren’t too bad – pretty standard for Great Britain. Actually, a little better than what I’ve found; they’ve got a nice
texture. The flavoring is light and kind of like a salted smoky flavor. It’s definitely different. 2.75
out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code <01854633>.

Looks like your typical big grocery chain store.
