ASIAN BEEF RAMEN NOODLES recipe – spin on a reader favourite!

I’ve previously shared stories where Dozer has been randomly recognised on the streets by readers and the odd occasion when I’ve been recognised. Always in a state of disarray. I am waiting for the time it happens when I just happen to be dolled up for an evening out.????????

Well, when 3 total strangers within the space of 2 weeks tell you that these are one of their favourites because it’s so tasty yet quick ‘n easy, it triggered a thought – why not do a ramen noodle version??

That caramelised ground beef / mince is just da bomb! I just want to pick it all out!!!

I hinted at a cheeky little tip that makes this ramen noodles recipe even quicker than you’d expect – and here it is:

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

How to make Ramen Noodles – in ONE POT!

Yes that’s right, these Asian Beef Ramen Noodles are made in ONE POT!!! Sure it saves on washing up an extra pot to cook the noodles separately, but for this recipe, the more important factor is that the starch in the noodles acts as the thickener for the sauce .

So here’s how this recipe goes down – 4 minutes for the onion and beef, 2 to 3 minutes for the noodles, MAX!

- Cook the beef with the sauce first – get it real nicely caramelised because it’s key to the flavour in this recipe;

- Make a well in the centre, add water, plonk uncooked instant or ramen noodles in the water. This serves two purposes – making room for the noodles to sit in the water AND protects the beef from losing their caramelisation by boiling in the water;

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

- After 45 seconds, turn the noodles, then 30 seconds later, they will be loose enough to toss through the sauce and beef;

- Add a big handful of beansprouts , toss more then serve;

- By the time the ramen noodles are cooked, the liquid is absorbed / evaporated, leaving behind a nice coating of sauce on the perfectly cooked noodles.

The beauty of this technique is that it HAS to be a super quick recipe because the noodles are cooked in 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer and they become too soft!

WHAT CAN I ADD TO RAMEN NOODLES?

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

This is a very adaptable recipe. I’ve used onion, garlic, ground beef and beansprouts because it requires minimal chopping. Finely sliced cabbage would be an ideal substitute for the bean sprouts, otherwise carrots cut into matchsticks, baby spinach or even normal spinach, or even finely sliced kale. Toss these in when the bean sprouts are added, just to wilt.

If using other vegetables that need to be cooked for longer that leech water when cooked, such as peppers, zucchini or mushroom, cook these first then remove from the pan . Proceed with recipe then toss them in at the end.

Ramen Noodles OR Instant Noodles

I don’t know if you’ve got a hang up about instant noodles – whether from excess consumption in your uni days or because of health concerns – but let’s just say this recipe is a far cry from the plonk-in-water-add-veg that you probably overdosed on.

What I’m making the most of here in this recipe is the quick-cook noodles and the shape of the noodles cakes so they can be cooked in a shallow skillet.

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

Any instant noodles or ramen noodles will work just fine because we discard the soup seasoning mix. You can also buy just the noodle cakes in larger packs of 5+.

If you don’t have instant noodles , these Asian Beef Ramen Noodles will work just fine with any other type of noodles. Dried or fresh, rice or wheat / egg noodles.

But honestly, I ask you – does this look like any instant ramen noodles you had in your dorm days?? ???? – Nagi x

Got beef mince? You can do better than Spag Bol.

Recipe video above. A great quick ramen noodle recipe that requires very little prep. The trick here is to caramelise the beef well - makes all the difference!

Keyword:Beef and Noodles, Noodles

- 2 packets ramen or other instant noodles , discard seasoning

- 1 1/4 cups water, plus more as needed

- Finely sliced green onion / shallots

- Heat oils in a medium skillet over high heat. Add onion and garlic, cook for 1 1/2 minutes until starting to go golden.

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

- Add beef and cook, breaking it up as you go, until it changes from pink to light brown.

- Add Sauce and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until well caramelised .

- Push beef to the side to make enough space for the noodles. Add water, place noodles in water.

- Leave for 45 seconds then turn.

- Leave for 30 seconds, then untangle the noodles, then toss through the beef.

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

- Add beansprouts, toss for 1 minute until sauce reduces to coat the noodles and the noodles are cooked.

- Serve immediately, garnished with green onions and sesame seeds.

1. Instant or Ramen Noodles - Any brand or type is fine here, though avoid the extra large ramen packets because you'll struggle to fit two in the pan . If it comes with soup seasoning packets, toss them.

Ssub with fresh or dried noodles . Prepare per packet, use ~ 2 packed cups, toss through the caramelised beef with a splash of water.

2. Sesame oil - Use toasted sesame oil if you've got it, otherwise untoasted is fine. Brown sesame oil = toasted, untoasted = yellow like normal oil.

3. Mince - Ground beef is called mince here in Australia. Can sub with any other ground meat of choice - chicken, turkey, pork, lamb, kangaroo , veal.

4. Dark Soy Sauce has a darker colour and more intense flavour than all purpose and light soy sauce. If you can't find it, any soy sauce is fine here but the sauce colour will be lighter.

5. Oyster Sauce - I've noticed vegetarian oyster sauce in the supermarkets lately!

6. Mirin - a sweet Japanese cooking sake, very common ingredient in Japanese cooking. Find it in large supermarkets, or Asian grocery stores.

Sub with Chinese cooking wine, dry sherry. Non alcoholic sub: use 1/2 cup water + 3/4 cup low sodium chicken stock/broth and skip the Mirin.

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

7. Total cook time for noodles should be per packet. Add a touch more water if noodles need longer.

8. SCALING recipe up - use a larger skillet. Can break noodle cakes if necessary to fit.

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

This was DELICIOUS! I can’t even figure out what it was that stood out – it was so satisfying! What a great takeout fake-out option ???? I added sauteed zucchini and thinly sliced bell peppers to bulk up the dish a bit. I had considered doubling up on the sauce, but there was no need. Absolutely perfect! We are making again tonight!

You could really add ANY veggies you like it’s so forgiving! I’m so happy you love it Sarah!

The embedded recipe scaler really rocks! Although I haven’t made this recipe, I’m making this for dinner tonight…I need an easy, quick, AND yummy option!

I’ve made this dish twice now, the first time with fresh ramen noodles and the second with the dried version. We all agreed that the fresh version was by far the best. I also add, chilli paste to liven things up. So quick, easy and tasty. This is another one of your recipes requested all the time by my family. Thank you again.

I recently visited a grocery that keeps a butcher, so the meats were more various than I find at my bare-bones usual place. I found some chuck steak trimmings on steep discount and bought them to make this dish. Sliced the beef very thinly, stir-fried it, and cooked the ramen in the pan with a can of beef broth. Added a lot of veggies and the sauce, and it was WONDERFUL. I’ve also liked your Greek recipes – I’m addicted to the Lemon Pilaf. I’ll certainly be back – thanks!

Quick Asian Beef Ramen Noodles

This has become a staple at our house. I double the recipe and use a bag of coleslaw mix for the veg. Kids eat it right up, even when I sub in ground turkey.

This was super easy and beyond yummy. Thank u for yet another easy recipe. We normally make double so there’s plenty of left over for lunches. I’ve tried countless of your recipes and have not been disappointed once, just need to go and add my feedback….not sure how I stumbled across your site but am forever grateful I did!

Thanks so much for the great feedback Maryanna, I really appreciate it!

Super quick and easy. I’m not super fond of bean sprouts so I used some finely shredded carrots and snow peas instead. Yummy. Will become a staple recipe in my household.

Awesome Heather, you can really use any veggies you like with this one as it’s so versatile ☺️
