Here’s one I brought back in my suitcase from Taiwan from my November 2017 trip to Taiwan for the Taiwan International Food Expo. I really hope to live in Taiwan someday. No joke – it’s really that neat there. Let’s crack this meaty beast open and see what’s inside. By the way, no, you’re not going to find this in the United States – it’s got a retort pouch full of meat and that kind of makes it off the table for export. Let’s begin.
Vedan Original Beef Flavor Noodle – Taiwan
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add everything but the large retort pouch to 500ml boiling water and cook 3 minutes. Add in retort pouch contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry base sachet.
Powder and vegetable bits.
A liquid base sachet.
An oily paste.
The retort pouch.
Rich sauce and beef.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Good noodles – nice gauge to them . Quantity was fine and chew was good too. The broth was… tasty! A lot of the time these varieties with retort pouches have a lighter broth. This one delivered nicely. Finally, the meat was pretty good, although on the dry side. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.
