HOW TO MAKE this Beef Ramen recipe
- My recipe calls for allot less oil than most recipes out there, you really don’t need a lot anyway.
- That is unless you want super crispy beef? I find the tender beef to be best for this recipe.
- Also you can use plain ramen noodles instead of the Ichiban variety. However if you do then you will want to use beef stock in replace of the water along with 1 tbsp of soya sauce.
- That is because I mix the pre packaged ichiban seasoning with 2 cups of water for this recipe.
Your method to preparing this is totally up to you!!
The kind I used – feel free to use plain ramen noodles and omit the water for beef stock.
I have always loved ramen noodles, I have tried almost every kind. My favorite is ichiban and that is why I used them in this recipe.
However if your trying to limit your salt intake then you can substitute the seasoning that comes in that ramen package and use beef stock instead.
Whichever method you choose you still can have dinner on the table tonight in under 30 minutes time. It doesn’t get any easier or tastier than this for beef ramen noodles.
The origins of ramen noodles originated from Japan however the chinese are the ones who brought it over in the mid 1800’s making this recipe more chinese.
It’s absolutely delicious!
