Beef and Broccoli Ramen Stir Fry

Servings: 4 people as a main course Beef and Broccoli Ingredients: 6 oz instant Ramen noodles, (two 3 oz packages), seasoning discarded 1 lb broccoli, cut into 6 cups florets 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided 1 lb flank steak, or top sirloin, thinly sliced 2 tsp sesame seeds, optional garnish 2 Tbsp chives, optional garnish Stir Fry Sauce Ingredients: 1 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated 3 cloves garlic, grated (2 tsp) 6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce 1/2 cup warm water 3 Tbsp light brown sugar, packed 1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch 2 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 tsp black pepper


Start by cooking ramen so it is ready when you need it. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add ramen noodles and cook 3 minutes, breaking them up with a spatula. Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside.


In a large measuring cup or bowl, combine all sauce ingredients and stir to dissolve the sugar. Place a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Once skillet is hot, add 1 Tbsp oil, 6 cups broccoli and 2 Tbsp water.

Cover with lid and sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until crisp tender. Transfer broccoli to a separate dish. Increase to medium high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. Add beef in a single layer and sauté 2 minutes per side or just until cooked through then reduce heat to medium low.

Re-stir the sauce if it has separated and add to the pan and simmer 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. It will thicken. Return broccoli to the pan along with the cooked noodles and stir or toss to combine and coat the noodles in sauce.

Add 1 to 2 Tbsp water to the sauce to thin if desired. Serve garnished with sesame seeds and chives.
