Shortcut Asian Beef and Noodles

Considering I have a friend who cooks gourmet Korean cuisine that is to die for, I have to say I am a touch hesitant to call this recipe Asian Beef and Noodles.  Don't be fooled - it is not the "real deal."  However, this is a recipe that my kids love and is tasty, super quick, and easy, so it fits the bill perfectly for the busy mom.  The ingredients are few and inexpensive, the prep is easy, the cooking is in one pan, the cleanup is a breeze.  Maybe later this summer, I will post the recipe for a more authentic dish. :)


  •  1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 packages (3 oz each) Oriental ramen noodles, crumbled
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli stir-fry vegetable blend
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp thinly sliced green onion

  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until no longer pink; drain.  Add the contents of one ramen noodle flavoring packet; stir until dissolved.  Remove beef and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, combine the water, veggies, ginger, noodles, and the contents of the remaining flavoring packet.  Bring to a boil.  
  3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.  Return beef to the pan; cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.  Stir in onion.

Difficulty: very easy
Time: 20 minutes
