We lost power last night and I was forced to eat ice cream in the dark while drinking 2 bottles of wine with our neighbors. Ok, I wasn’t forced. It was crazy fun and the perfect way to spend an electric free weeknight. I mean, the whole time I was drinking and chatting I was sure it felt just like a weekend. Then I woke up and it wasn’t a weekend and I was sad.

Weekends are full of sleeping in, eating at the diner and catching up on laundry. One of those things is not as fun as the other two. I’ll let you figure out which one that might be.

Now that we all agree weekends are better than weekdays I’m gonna give you the PERFECT weeknight meal that is also perfect for the weekend – easy beef and broccoli ramen noodles.

I mean, really it’s perfect for any day of the week. I would even eat this for breakfast.

Who says ramen noodles aren’t breakfast food?

I keep this dish really simple by marinating some meat overnight and then cooking it up quickly, throwing in some homemade brown sauce and finally tossing it all together with steamed broccoli and lots of ramen noodles. I just bought the cheapo ramen noodles packets and threw away the flavor packets.

This dish also works perfectly with chicken breast or even rotisserie chicken. I just personally prefer it with beef because I’m a sucker for sirloin tips. They always turn out so good in dishes like this and are usually on sale a few times a month so I always pick them up on a steal.

Oh, and to make things even easier I just buy those bags of steamable broccoli from the grocery store and steam it right in the microwave. Then I just throw it in with the cooked noodles and it’s done!

Can you tell I’m all about keeping things easy?

Easy Beef and Broccoli Ramen Noodles

This easy beef and broccoli ramen noodles is a super tasty weeknight rush kind of meal. Rich and flavorful sauce tossed with marinated beef, broccoli and lots of ramen noodles. You'll love this simple and easy dish! 

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

For marinade: 

  • 1-1/2 pound sirloin beef tips, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemongrass
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

For sauce:

  • 1/4 cup low soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce

For cooking:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups steamed broccoli
  • 3 (3 ounce) packets ramen noodles, cooked and flavor packet thrown away

Directions:

Thinly slice the beef and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together sesame oil, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, cornstarch, dark brown sugar and baking soda. Add the meat to the mixture, stir to combine, cover the bowl and marinate overnight in the fridge. If you do not have the time to marinate overnight let it sit in the marinade as long as possible.

Give the meat a stir a couple times while marinating so everything is equally marinated.

For sauce:
In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, water, brown sugar, flour and hoisin sauce, set aside.

To cook:

Set a large high sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and when the oil is hot add in the marinated meat, making sure to scrape out all the marinade from the bowl.

Let the beef get browned and golden in the pan, giving it a stir every few minutes.

Give the sauce a stir (just in case the flour has settled to the bottom) and add into the pan with the meat. Stir to combine and let it cook for a few minutes or until it starts to thicken up slightly.

Add in the steamed broccoli and cooked ramen and toss to combine.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
