Very easy to make if you are short on time. I added extra ginger, salt and pepper.
I liked it ok, but I'm not sure really what's Asian about it other than store bought Ramen noodles with high sodium flavor packets. Oh and let's not forget the ginger. Not bad for a quick meal though.
I've made this recipe many times, using ground chicken or ground turkey sometimes, as well as ground beef. It does taste best when served right after making it, since the noodles tend to get soggy if you refrigerate it and then reheat later. I use both of the seasoning packets instead of just one, and sprinkle the dish with soy sauce when serving. (This will increase the sodium content. ) We like the flavor, but adding a dash of ground red pepper or some hot sauce would work well for those who want it spicier!
This recipe wasn't very good. My son called it "Yum, yum, YUCK!" and my husband opted for bread and butter. It was bland, uninspired and tasted like ground beef with Ramen noodles. Very disappointing given the very positive ratings this recipe received.
Also excellent with Ground Turkey!
