Beef with Ramen Noodles Recipe

Beef with Ramen Noodles Recipe

I made up this recipe when I was looking for good Chinese food in beautiful Oregon. Each time I make this, I change something slightly. Leftovers heat easily in the microwave or fry pan.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup beef broth, divided
  • 1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 package (3 ounces) beef ramen noodles
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole baby corn, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 2 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup peanuts

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons broth until smooth; set aside.
  • 2. In a large skillet, stir-fry beef in oil. Add soy sauce; cook for 3-4 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Remove beef and keep warm.
  • 3. Set aside seasoning packets from noodles. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
  • 4. Add the corn, broccoli, red pepper, carrot, onions and remaining broth to the skillet. Sprinkle with contents of reserved seasoning packets. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • 5. Stir reserved cornstarch mixture and add to skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add reserved beef and noodles to skillet; heat through. Garnish with peanuts. Yield: 2 servings.
