These Ground Beef Ramen Bowls are done in less than 30 minutes! So get your chop sticks ready, because this dinner is going to disappear fast!
Don’t you just love an easy dinner recipe that gets cheers from the WHOLE crowd? Whether you’re making these ramen noodles for your family or just for yourself, I can promise that they are going to be gone in minutes.
Why We Love Ramen Noodle Bowls
Honestly, who doesn’t love ramen noodles? Our boys love slurping up these noodles as fast as they can. The sauce is super light so it clings to every noodle and I can tell you, these noodles are seriously addicting.
What we love about making these Ground Beef Ramen Bowls is that you can switch up the ingredients to what you like or what you have on hand. More about that later in the post, but just keep in mind that this recipe is very adaptable!
How To Make Ground Beef Ramen Bowls
Cook and drain the ramen noodles and rinse them in cold water to stop them from cooking. For this ramen bowl recipe, you can discard the flavor packs or save them for another use.
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet with onion and garlic. Whisk up the sauce on the side and once the beef is cooked through, pour it over the beef and toss it all together.
Now it’s time for those ramen noodles…
Add the ramen noodles to the skillet with the beef and the sauce. We’re adding chopped sugar snap peas that we haven’t cooked or steamed, because we like the crunch.
If you prefer your veggies a little softer, you can blanch or steam the sugar snap peas before adding them to the skillet with the ramen noodles and ground beef.
Now you can toss everything together, making sure to get all the noodles, beef and vegetables coated well with the sauce. The sauce for these Ground Beef Ramen Bowls is light, meaning there’s not a ton of sauce dripping off the noodles.
We prefer these ramen noodle bowls this way, but if you want a lot of sauce you can double the sauce amounts and add as much as you want to these noodle bowls. If you’re doubling the sauce, add it at the end when all of the ingredients are in the skillet so you know how much sauce you need to coat everything the way you like.
Can I Use Different Ingredients For These Ramen Noodle Bowls?
Definitely! There are really so many options, but we’ll list a few here to give you some ideas!
- Ground Turkey
- Ground Chicken
- Ground Pork
- Sliced Steak
- Shredded Carrots
- Snow Peas
- Bell Peppers
Can You Make This Recipe Ahead Of Time?
While we are big fans of a make ahead dinner, these noodle bowls are best when freshly made. The sauce will get absorbed by the noodles after sitting for a while or chilling in the fridge.
But don’t let that stop you from saving the leftovers! Reheated leftovers are still super delicious, the flavor is still all there! You can also add some soy sauce or a splash of chicken broth when reheating if you want a more saucy noodle bowl.
