This was soooo good! Whole family loved it and request it often now, which I can promise you RARELY happens.
I have the same cooking magazine! I was doing a search before posting the recipe and found it already here. We love it, we like more noodles in it though, so we add a 3rd package of noodles and increase the other ingredients to accommodate it.
I really enjoyed the stir fry sauce in this!! That was the only difference from another recipe I make like this...Recipe #25551 So I don't have to boil off the water this is how I made this recipe. I put my frozen veggies in the water bring them to boil. When the water boils I add the ramen noodles in and cook for 2-3 minutes, drain and add to meat. I don't add the water into the mixture afterwards. I could only add 1/4 cup of the stir fry sauce because my brand was *SPICY* and the kids don't like spicy. At over $4. for 11 ounces, next time I'll try making my own stir fry sauce as there are many on the site. I adopted this chef for the *Spring PAC 2008* game
