This recipe is from a blogger called CravingsinAmsterdam. She has great travel and food videos in Amsterdam! We love this recipe. I’ve never made minced beef which is a plus to try a new kind of meat preparation. I hope you enjoy this as well!

The udon absorbs the curry sauce as the leftovers set overnight. Just add some water to make more of a saucy soup when that happens as you reheat this delish soup!

I find it easiest to make the Teriyaki Minced Beef first. Then I move on to the curry. The original recipe uses a precooked curly udon. I did not find that so I cooked the dry straight udon in water as directed. Then after draining I add it to the curry.


Teriyaki Minced Beef

2 tablespoons oil

1 pound thinly sliced lean sirloin beef

1 onion chopped

4 cloves garlic minced

Japanese Curry Udon

2 tablespoons oil

1 white onion chopped

4 cloves garlic minced

1 can coconut milk

2 cubes Golden Japanese Curry

2-3 cups boiling water

2 packets udon, precooked or raw that is cooked

Sliced green onion

Sesame seeds


  1. To prepare the beef mince the thinly sliced beef into small tiny pieces about 1/4 inch size
  2. Heat frying pan over medium heat. Add oil. Sauté onion until tender. Add garlic and sauté 1/2 minute
  3. Add beef and sauté or stir fry until browned. Add 4 tablespoons teriyaki marinade or sauce
  4. Simmer a few minutes. Taste and add more sauce if needed. Set aside
  5. Next cook the udon per package directions unless you’re using the precooked variety
  6. In a medium saucepan heat the oil
  7. Add onion and sauté until tender. Add the garlic and sauté 1/2 minute.
  8. Add the coconut milk and the curry cubes. Whisk and simmer until dissolved
  9. Whisk in the 2 cups boiling water
  10. Add the drained udon and simmer a few minutes until thickened. If it’s too thick add more water
  11. Serve the curry in large bowls. Place a large spoon of Teriyaki Beef on top of the Curry.
  12. Sprinkle with minced scallions and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Eat with chopsticks!
  13. This makes 4 servings
  14. Voila!
