What You’ll Love About Ground Beef And Broccoli Ramen:

  • It’s a fast and easy meal to make.
  • Super flavorful and filling.
  • Lots of veggies and protein.

Maybe you’d could call it my guilty pleasure, but one of my favorite things to make myself when my family is away for the evening is a big bowl of ramen and veggies. I love ramen because it feels like I’m eating pasta only the noodles are much lighter. I also appreciate that it only takes a few minutes to cook, so it’s perfect when I get a craving for noodles but don’t have the patience to wait long.

Ground Beef and Broccoli Ramen is like a super amped-up ramen experience. A much better option than take-out, in my opinion. This recipe has awesome Asian flavors like soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger. All pantry staple ingredients you might even have on hand!

How To Make Ground Beef and Broccoli Ramen:

Step 1. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium heat. Add olive oil and broccoli florets. Cook florets until just tender. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile combine sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.

Step 2. To the same skillet cook ground beef until no longer pink. Add onions, garlic, carrots, and bell peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Peppers should still be crisp tender.

Step 3. Add the broccoli back to the pan with the cooked beef and veggies and pour in the sauce. Bring to a low simmer and cook 5-minutes until sauce is thickened.

Step 4. Prepare ramen noodles in a small sauce pan following the package directions, only undercook by 1-minute. Immediately transfer just the noodles to the pan with the beef and broccoli. Toss to combine with the sauce and serve with toasted sesame seeds.

Additional toppings:

This recipe is delicious as is but if you want to add even more flavor and fun, try topping with any of the following ingredients.

  • Fresh cilantro
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Peanuts or cashews
