Fresh orange zest and juice liven up this beefy Chinese noodle dish.
I love noodle bowls. There are so many possible combinations of toppings, so I was definitely intrigued by this recipe from Blue Apron.
It was good, but not anything special. I was surprised that this dish ended up being kind of bland, even though there were a lot of flavors going on in the recipe.
My husband and I both ended up adding some hoisin sauce and sambal oelek to pep up the flavor. This dish definitely has potential, but as it’s written, it didn’t wow us.
