Beef? Na – beef! I remember a while back I had Chicken na Chicken too – startlingly, it was chicken flavored. Beef sounds nice. Let’s give ‘er a shot…

The noodle block is on the small side.
Powder on the left and the ‘garnish’ on the right.
Ready to turn into tasty beef noodle soup!
Finished (click image to enlarge). I put a little baby bok choy, one fried egg, and a couple sprinkles of Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning in with the noodle soup. The noodles were nice – they drank up a lot of the soup as they were a small block in two cups of water, but they never got spongy or over engorged. The broth was a star here – salty and with a nice beef marrow-like taste. The garnish? A little weird; the little floaty flavored chewy spheres are always fascinating to me in Filipino instant noodles. It was a decent bowl of soup – really hit the spot. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 4807770190988 . I think this is the same thing.
Here’s a TV commercial for it.
This is really interesting to listen to
“Beef Na Beef ” comes with little meat-like spheres, and the “artificial Beef flavor” omits the meat-like pellets. I’m pretty sure they’re not meat, but the broth sure does a good job of making them taste like it.
Both versions taste really good – I’m glad my local supermarket carries them.
You should try Lucky Me’s other soups- Poku and Kari flavor. I like the Poku flavor very much and I eat it with a soft boiled egg and kimchi! Also Lucky Me Lomi which has thicker udon-like noodles 🙂
Would love to but I haven’t seen them – any chance you might be able to donate some for review?
