Ground Beef Ramen


My daughter loves Ramen noodle packages for lunch. They are cheap and easy for her to make in a hurry.  We always have a few packages of these in the pantry and we decided to use them in a pinch for dinner. They were perfect! They cook in no time and adding a handful of items from out pantry our dinner was on the table in no time.

Verdict:

All of my family loves Asian flavored ground beef so this was a hit in our house. I loved that it was on the table within 30 minutes and no one was complaining about how long dinner was taking to cook!

  • Servings: ”6-8″
  • Difficulty: ”easy”
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef, lean
  • 3 packages of Ramen noodles with flavoring packets
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen vegetable mix, your choice
  • crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • soy sauce
  • oyster sauce

Directions:

  1. In a large wok or skillet brown ground beef with a few dashes of crushed red pepper until cooked through. Add contents of 2 Ramen noodle flavoring packets and stir until well combined.
  2. Remove ground beef from pan and drain any grease from the pan.
  3. In the same skillet combine water, vegetables, and noodles. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat allowing to cook for 3 -4 minutes or until noodles are tender.
  4. Return beef to pan and add sesame oil, soy sauce, and oyster sauce to taste. You may also add a dash of powdered ginger if you like.
  5. Serve hot.

    My daughter LIVES on ramen. She has recently discovered the Korean ramen. She’s been eating it for months now and is building up a tolerance to the intense heat that Korean food is known for. While I’m not a fan, I bet the hubby and she would like this recipe. I’ll have to give it a go. Thanks for sharing.

        For me if it looks like ramen, it’s ramen. I don’t ever eat it, but coming up with new dishes they will eat is my biggest challenge.

    How is Regular Noodles different from Ramen Noodles?

      They are thinner and cook much faster than regular noodles. About 1/2 the time.

    I have done this before; we love it! I will leave the noodle just a little undercooked for an al-dente texture.
    We have also made the chicken kin into a casserole with diced chicken and broccoli mixed in, then topped with cheese, then bake for about 20 minutes to heat and meal the cheese.
