Very good. Easy to make if you follow the directions carefully. They could be broken down a little bit more to make sure that no steps are missed. Otherwise, very tasty!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut beef into 1/2 inch pieces.
  2. Mince garlic and parsley stems (and ginger if fresh), coarsely chop parsley leaves, chop celery, scallions and finely slice onion (1 medium/small).
  3. Drop ramen noddles into boiling water, remove from heat, allow to cool a few minutes then drain. Noodles will not be fully cooked yet.
  4. Heat frying pan or wok to med high, add 1/2 cup water, seasoning packets, and onion. Cook a couple minutes.
  5. Add beef pieces, toss so each side is browned.
  6. Add all other vegetables/flavorings. Add ramen noodles, toss, heat through a couple minutes. Serve in two bowls and top with lime juice.
  7. My DH who does not in general like Asian food and is more meat-and-potatoes complimented me on this. I whipped it up late at night for a flavorful, nutritious meal that was not fast food.
