Beef with Ramen Noodles

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.

    This came together quickly but required quite a bit of attention. I served it with a fried egg on top and left out the peanuts. I don't have any leftovers, even with picky eaters.

    Very easy to prepare. Even my picky 8 year old daughter loved it.

    This was good. I used pork cutlets in it instead of the beef. It came out tasty.

    I really liked this recipe, but recommend that you eat as much as you can during the meal because the leftovers don't keep well.
