Low-Carb Shirataki Pasta with Meat Sauce Recipe | Cooking with Dog
Hi, I’m Francis,
the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.”
Today, we are making pasta with our previous
homemade meat sauce and shirataki noodles.
You can enjoy a lot of pasta without worrying
about the calories even if you are on a diet.
First, let’s prepare the ingredients.
Place the shirataki noodles into a pot of water
and turn on the burner.
Bring it to a boil
and then cook the shirataki for about 30 seconds.
This will help to remove any unwanted flavors
and reduce some of the water.
Strain the shirataki with a mesh strainer.
Be careful not to burn yourself.
Chef’s hands are extra tough.
Cut the long noodles into shorter lengths.
Clean the cutting board
and cut the shungiku leaves into 4cm (1.6″) pieces.
If the stalk is soft, thinly slice it using diagonal cuts
so that you can also use it in this recipe.
And now, let’s make the shirataki pasta.
Place the parboiled shirataki into a heated skillet
and thoroughly stir-fry it to reduce the water.
This process is important
because the water will make the dish soggy
and prevent the sauce from coating the noodles.
When the shirataki makes squeaky sounds,
it is ready.
Add the olive oil.
Then, add the chopped garlic clove
and sliced shungiku stalk.
Saute the noodles and bring out the aroma of the garlic.
Then, add the moyashi bean sprouts.
The bean sprouts can be optional
but they will give the dish a pleasant texture.
Add 2 pinches of salt
Toss to coat with the seasonings.
Now, gather the noodles to one side
and warm up the meat sauce.
This homemade meat sauce has tofu and lots of vegetables.

Toss the noodles to coat with the sauce.
When the liquid is almost completely reduced,
add the shungiku leaves.
Lightly stir the mixture.
The shungiku can be eaten raw so avoid overcooking it.
Now, place the dish onto a plate.
If the shungiku stalks are not available,
you can use broccoli sprouts or parsley leaves instead.
Finally, top with a generous amount of grated parmesan cheese
and enjoy the shirataki meat sauce pasta.
This isn’t just low in calories but also a nutritionally balanced meal
so people on a diet should definitely try this recipe.
I’m happy that this delicious and filling dish
will help me go on a diet!
Unlike other noodles, shirataki noodles don’t get soggy
so this can be a great bento ingredient.
Good luck in the kitchen!
