In a large nonstick frying pan put the oil, cabbage and carrot pieces. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring until the cabbage starts to wilt.
Add the ground beef and stir-fry until the pink is gone.
Meanwhile, fill a medium-size saucepan 2/3 full with water and heat over high heat. Once the water starts boiling, add the two packages of ramen noodles. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 2 or 3 minutes. Drain.
Add the drained noodles to the hamburger mixture. Add the two seasoning packets, and stir until well mixed.
Optional: Sprinkle with soy sauce if desired.
Note: I usually break each noodle package into 3-4 large chunks before adding it to the boiling water.
