I found this recipe in the newspaper today. I have been using Bec's Hamburger Skillet Supper, for a long time. But this one has a few different things added into it. I just love the ramen noodles. I also add an extra cup of veggies when I make mine.
- 1 1⁄4 lbs ground beef
- 2 (3 ounce) packages ramen noodles, Oriental-flavor
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced
- In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain.
- Season beef with one packet from the noodles.
- Add ginger and mix well.
- In another pan, add water bringing it to a boil then cook noodles, about 3 minutes or until tender.
- Depending how done you like your vegetable, could add them to the water in the beginning of step four. Once the water is at a boil add the noodles.
- Otherwise, add the vegetables to the water at the same time you add the noodles.
- Drain noodles and vegetables and return to the ground beef.
- Heat through.
- Stir in green onions.
- I like to use the frozen mixture of green beans, carrots, corn and peas for my vegetables. But I see in the photo they use broccoli, carrots and water chestnuts.
This was a nice change from the usual "soup". I was making this for my teenage son and he isn't a big fan of veggies so I divided the recipe and used only 1/4 pkg. of seasoning since there weren't any veggies. Saved a little of the water that the noodles were cooked in to moisten them just a tad and just a couple shakes of ground ginger. It was gone in 10 min.!
This was quite good with minimal effort! I did add a few splashes of soy sauce but other than that, followed just as written. I would say that the servings are closer to 6 because I served two adults, three kids (who had seconds) and still had some left over. Very budget friendly and fills the bellies! Thx for sharing Charlotte.
This is one of my fave staples! (I found it in the TV Guide.) I usually don't have green onions on hand so I just use a regular white onion. I get stir-fry frozen veggies that have green beans, broccoli, carrots, water chesnuts, onion, peppers & 'baby' corn (which I pick out cuz I hate them!). Thanks for posting, this is simple and easy to make; everyone who tries it loves it! Oh, sometimes I just add both seasoning packets to the veggies instead of the beef, it's just easier.
