Asian Beef and Noodles
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
I did not use the seasoning packets, I mixed my own seasonings using a recipe for homemade oriental seasoning. It was a bit bland. I think the issue was the amount of water. Next time I will drain the water before adding the meat back in. 2 stars
Last week I was looking for a quick & easy recipe. This recipe popped up. I had chicken defrosted so I made it with the chicken and matching noodle packs. Tonight I'm switching shrimp and shrimp noodle packs for the beef. They have all been quick and delicious! At some point I might try the beef. If your frozen stir fry vegetables omit water chestnuts and a drained can in for extra crunch.
Hearty, hot, different and easy meal. The total cost for me to prepare this was $7.25. This was for meat, ramen and the stir fry vegetables. I had ginger spice and we omitted the green onion as not a fan of this. There were lots of leftovers. Not really a fan of the sodium in the ramen packets and maybe would look at the alternate replacement ingredients mentioned below in another post. On the other hand, this was loaded with vegetables so I guess nutrients all balance out especially if we are not eating this every day and the rest of our diet is balanced. We sprinkled with cashews on top. It was all good together and added a really different meal option for us. Other thing of note, the Oriental Ramen packet names have changed and now go by "Soy Flavored".
I've made this several times but always used either ground pork or diced pieces of pork. We love it and it goes together quickly.
I have made this several times, great!!! We tried it with ground chicken and chicken ramen noodkes, just as good. I did add a little Kitchen Bouquet to the chicken when cooking to give it a different color than the n oodles. My family lives this. Thanks for sharung
My family really liked this but I made some changes. I doubled it for my family. I used fresh ginger and used 1 Tbls Teriyaki Sauce and 4 Tbls Low Sodium Soy Sauce in place of some of the water. I also put the hamburger in with everything before it boiled.
This is one of our family favorites. Even my wife--who is an extremely picky eater--loves it. I add snow peas and a bit of hosin or tamari sauce and teriyaki sauce to it in addition to the soy sauce. I also use ground chuck which tends to be 80% lean. Other than that I make it as directed.
This is a recipe we return to often....it's a great weeknight meal that we can tweak to fit our taste (certain veggies.) Our kids like it as much as we do! Can be doubled easily.
We also used our own spices to adjust things to our taste, but it was a good base recipe and something very quick and simple to get on the dinner table in a hurry!
I was somewhat afraid to make this dish due to the negative reviews, but I'm glad I did. However, I took heed to the comments regarding it being bland and bumped up the spices and took other's suggestions to make it better. The recipe was used as a base and I made it better using my own touches...isn't that what cooking is all about? Fresh ginger, chopped garlic, instead of frozen vegetables-fresh, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, beef bouillon, etc. Using the stated cooking method, this was a very tasty dish! I give it 4 1/2 stars! It will be made again in our home.
