That Beefy-Noodley Thing
1 - 1.5 lbs. ground beef (or thinly sliced/cubed/ground pork or chicken)
2 packages ramen noodles (I used Sapporo Ichiban brand, link to amazon.com)
2 - 4 c frozen mixed veggies (or so, I don't measure, just use what you've got)
2 c hot water
additional: onion powder, garlic powder, soy sauce (just a bit), sambal oelek (fresh chili paste) or other hot sauce, or substitute fresh veggies for frozen (pre-sautee if needed, like onion)
In a large non-stick pan, sautee ground beef (or brown if cubed/sliced meat). Add noodles (slightly crushed), soup flavouring packages, veggies and water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 5-10 minutes, making sure noodles are moistened and cooking. Add a bit of cornstarch in cold water if too wet, and cook for a couple of minutes. Serve! NB: Try and use a decent brand of noodles. The really cheap ones just don't have good flavour, or stand up to the cooking and get mushy.
