Ramen Noodle Skillet {101 Stovetop Suppers}

Today I am sharing a recipe that you can serve your family in less than 30 minutes. When I recently reviewed Gooseberry Patches 101 Stovetop Suppers this Ramen Skillet Supper was the first recipe I tried. I was short on time and needed to get dinner on the table rather quickly, so I chose a recipe from their Quick & Easy chapter. 

We like anything Asian and my kids love ramen noodles, so this recipe was perfect for a busy weeknight meal. The best thing about this recipe is that it only requires a few ingredients and it's prepared in one skillet. 

I've said it once and I will say it again, I love skillet meals! They're quick and easy to prepare and I can have dinner the table in a snap. 

I stuck to the recipe for the most part, but did increase the amount stir fry sauce and added some baby corn and water chestnuts.

I used only one packet of the ramen seasoning, but I think you could get by without adding them at all (to lower the sodium). If it wasn't for this recipe I would of never thought to add ground beef to a stir fry dish. It turned out so colorful and everyone loved it. We will  definitely be making this one again. 




Ramen Skillet Supper

1 - lb lean ground beef 
2 1/2 - cups water
2 - 3 oz packages beef or oriental flavored ramen noodles
1 - ramen seasoning packet, optional
3/4 - cup stir fry sauce
2 - cups frozen stir fry vegetables
1 - 8 oz can baby corns
1 - 8 oz can water chestnuts

Brown beef in a large skillet over medium heat; drain. Add water, one soup seasoning packet, sauce, vegetables, baby corn and water chestnuts. 

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Break up noodles; add to skillet.

Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 - 8 minutes, until sauce is thickened and noodles are tender.

Just any brand of bottled or packaged stir fry sauce. There is no specific brand to use.
