    Overall really good, however the hoisin got to be a little too sweet. Will try it again maybe by adding Soy Sauce or Stir fry sauce with the hoisin to tone it down a little.

    Thanks to some helpful reviews I was able to make a healthier version of this recipe. I discarded the seasoning packet and used Au Jus to cook the noodles in. I also added some sliced carrots for extra points. Layer by layer this recipe came together in a flash using just one skillet. For the meat I used left over Prime Rib. Super easy and super tasty.Taste Of Home VFE

    I was worried that the meat would end up tough and chewy as it has for other stir-fries I've done; however, it turned out quite tender-Yay!! This meal came together like a 30-Minute Meal, which is beneficial since I work a stressful full-time job. Overall, we liked it quite a lot. I thought the hoisin sauce from my store was a bit too sweet. I also added about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper to bring up the spice factor. Made a very attractive presentation on a large platter.

    Me and my husband liked it, but the kids thought the sauce on the mixture wasn't good (they are 3 and 7, so they have picky taste buds). I only used on pack of ramen, and that was plenty for us.

    Whenever I fix Ramen soup, I only use about half of the seasoning packet because it's so full of salt. Try it, it's just fine without the whole packet.
