This is the first recipe ever uploaded to the Seasoned Skillet Blog, and it’s still one of my absolute favourites! It’s one of those meals that always pop up in the weekly rotation of meals and it’s always a hit. All you need are a few ingredients that most usually have on hand! I hope you enjoy as much as I do, let’s get into it!

Which Ramen Noodles to Use

Any instant noodle pack will do as long as you discard the flavour packet which is usually laden with MSG. Whichever brand you choose it’s most likely very inexpensive – i.e the cheap stuff. That 0.99 cent per pack Mr.Noodles will work perfectly!

Variations

Make It Vegetarian! You can definitely make this dish meatless by omitting the ground beef, and substituting with additional veggies. Bean sprouts, snow peas, carrots, and bell peppers will all go nicely with this dish!

Make It with Steak! Go ahead and purchase that prime cut of beef, it’ll be good! Most grocery stores sell packages of pre-cut beef strips, labelled “perfect for stir-fry”. I would recommend marinating your beef prior to cooking, and be mindful not to overcrowd your skillet when searing. This will ensure that your meat will brown, not steam!

Grab the Grocery List (Screenshot The Below)!

  • Lean Ground Beef
  • Ramen or Instant Noodles
  • Sesame Oil
  • Broccoli
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Green Onion
  • Sesame Seeds (optional)
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Sauce

  • Soya Sauce
  • Hoisin Sauce
  • Mirin
  • Sriracha
  • Dried Parsley Flakes
  • Cayenne Pepper, optional

TSS Tip – Mirin is a subtly sweet and slightly tangy rice wine. It’s a key ingredient in teriyaki sauces, as well as many Japanese dishes. If you don’t have any mirin on hand, dry white wine or rice vinegar mixed with sugar is an easy substitute. For every tbsp of wine or rice vinegar, add a half tsp of sugar.

Beef & Broccoli Cooking Tips

Remember that firmer vegetables will require a few extra minutes of simmering to become tender-crisp. You can always add additional ramen noodle cooking water or beef broth to help the process. Extra hoisin or soya sauce can also be added to further cook your veggies. If you don’t have hoisin sauce, you can substitute with oyster sauce.
