Beef and Broccoli Ramen

If you are a fan of beef and broccoli you will love this beef and broccoli with noodles! I took my favorite Beef and Broccoli recipe and doubled the sauce and added tons of noodles. To me the noodles are the best part!

This Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry is the perfect one skillet meal! I like to marinate the beef overnight and toss everything together around dinner time. 15 minutes of prep and dinner is ready.

The sauce is made up of water, beef broth, soy sauce, garlic, oyster sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil. Cornstarch is added at the end to thicken up the sauce.

For a little spice I added in some Sriracha sauce. You can always add more to taste or add in some crushed red pepper flakes for a kick.

How to make Beef and Broccoli Ramen

  • Marinate beef: Add steak, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar to a medium bowl. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.

  • Make sauce: Meanwhile, mix together all of the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Boil ramen: According to the package instructions. Set aside.
  • Saute broccoli and beef: Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large skillet. Add in broccoli and sauté over medium heat until tender but still crisp. Remove the broccoli from the pan and set aside. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan. When pan is almost smoking add in beef. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.

  • Serve: Immediately with sesame seeds if desired.

Which Ramen Noodles Should I use?

I used the ramen noodles found in the international food isle in the grocery store. You can also find these at your local Asian grocer or online. You can also substitute regular ramen soup noodles (just forgo the seasoning packets)

Best Beef For Stir Fry?

I love using flank steak, skirt steak or strip steak in this recipe. These cuts of meat work best for high heat and fast cooking. I would opt out of using fattier cuts of meat or ones that require long cooking times to become tender like chuck roast.

Variations

  • Make it vegetarian! You can make this dish meatless and omit the beef and substitute vegetable broth for the beef broth. Add in more veggies like sliced carrots or bell peppers!
  • Substitute ground beef: If you cant find flank steak a cheaper option would be ground beef. Cook over high heat until browned and no longer red. Set aside until you are ready to assemble and add it back to the pan to heat through with the noodles and broccoli.
  • Substitute chicken thighs: Cubed chicken thighs can be sautéed then set aside and added later to the pan along with the noodles, broccoli and sauce.

Tips for making Beef and Broccoli Ramen

  • Make sure not to overcrowd your pan when you are searing the flank steak. Overcrowding the pan will cause the steak to steam and not brown. I usually cook my beef over high heat for a very short time in 2 or 3 batches.
  • The beef should release easily from the pan when browning. If it is sticking to the pan give it a little longer and it should release easier when it is caramelized on the outside.
  • Always cut the beef against the grain for a more tender cut of meat.
  • Make sure to thinly slice the beef. The thinner it is sliced the faster it will cook and the more tender it will be! To make slicing easier place the flank steak in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour to freezer. This will make slicing the steak super easy!

    Hi Kelley,

    Love, love, love broccoli with beef. But, with one alteration… I don’t think the ramen noodles are all that healthy given the amount of preservatives and whatever else it contains.

    Better to go to an Asian noodle shop where they hand make noodles and use them instead. You’ll find they’re much
    fresher and the ingredient list won’t contain all those preservatives and words you can’t pronounce in it.

    Just my 2 cents worth… otherwise, I’d definitely give your recipe a go!

    Thanks!

    • Juan

      Or you could post a couple of your own recipes and see what other would criticize on your style of cooking….just my 2 cents.

    • G

      I agree with you.
      Don’t like the recipe – just move on.
      Make your own and post it.
      So tired of people just abusing people on line.

  • Pam

    My printer won’t print from your web site. I have to go in thru world wide web to do that. Is there any way you can make your site more printer friendly.Going thru the world wide web to get and print your recipes takes forever – I need to go thru tons of recipes to try and find the one I saw on your site. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks—Pam

  • Katie

    I thought the sauce was a littl salty… is there anyway to lessen this? I already use low sodium soy sauce..i red help!

    • Hi Katie!

      I am so sorry this turned out salty for you! I would try adding some more water or more beef broth. I also recommend using low sodium beef broth and soy sauce.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

    • Katie

      Awesome! Thank you, I’m excited to try all sorts of new things with this – this is fantastic!!

    • Regina

      I use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce because it’s less salty! Loved this meal! Thank you!

    • Kristi

      I used chicken stock and no vinegar. Bit red pepper flakes for spice

  • Jennifer

    Oyster sauce typically has msg, which gives me a monster migraine. Can I sub for anything else??

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I would substitute hoisin sauce or mushroom sauce for the oyster sauce. You can always make homemade hoisin sauce too which is pretty easy.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

    • Hi Dennis!

      There is no fish sauce in this recipe but feel free to add it.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

    • Lily

      Would the measurements for replacing oyster sauce with hosing sauce be the same?

    • Hi!

      In the instructions it states:

      Add steak, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar to a medium bowl. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

    • G

      If you have a vacuum sealer with marinade function that would be optimal.

  • Jessica De Meio-Collins

    It was really good! We doubled the recipe, I free handed some of the ingredients, & it still turned out really good! I would recommend! We took out the broccoli & it wasn’t affected.

  • Sarah

    I made this last night for 3 adults and my toddler. Everyone loved it! I thought for sure we would have leftovers for lunch today but nope, everyone had seconds and nothing remained. My husband is part Korean and very picky and he loved it (he added a lot of sriracha, per usual). If other people see this comment and are about to make this recipe, my only comment is to actually use the low sodium beef broth! I used the regular beef broth as that is what I had on hand and I found it to be very salty. I was the only one who thought this though, but in the future I will make sure to use low sodium beef broth. Adding this to my regular rotation, thanks for the delicious recipe!

  • Nikkip

    It was a great idea. I just used the base components and, made it my own way. Thank you.
