If you are a fan of beef and broccoli you will love this dish! 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!

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)

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.

 

Beef and Broccoli Ramen

This is a 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. Enjoy!

    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!

  • 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

    • 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!

    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.

  • Noel Parker

    Dieting – I use Spagetti Squash and/or Zuchini Squash, microwaved first, instead of Ramen. Waters the recipe down a little – but makes it more calorie friendly.

  • Betty McKay

    This recipe was so incredibly salty no one could eat it. All my lovely produce, beautiful meat, and hard work went in the garbage. There was nothing to do to salvage it.

  • First go at this recipe. We all liked it. I think when I try it again, I’ll use the real noodles instead of the college classics. Lol. Other than that, it was fun to make and eat.

  • Katyluella

    I made it but with out the oyster sauce and it turned out really good

  • J

    Just made first time and loved it. I steamed the broccoli for 3 min in microwave before sautéing which turned out great as my family does not like really crisp broccoli. Any way to get the beef more tender? It was not too tough but would like a more tender beef ( I sliced 1/8” slices and marinated for about 1.5 hours in fridge).
    Thanks, J

  • Jackie

    Bummed that my sauce turned out really thin/runny. I added the 2 tbsp of cornstarch the sauce called for, did 8 tbsp of APU saive because I didn’t have the oyster sauce and it looks more like soup…

    • Hi Jackie,

      I am so sorry that this did not turn out for you! It helps to have the heat up very high to thicken the sauce after you added the cornstarch and let it simmer for a while. Other than that I am not sure why it would be runny. I’m sorry I could not be of more help.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

  • Julie

    Really really yummy!! Personal preference next time I will use more broccoli and a.little less noodles but the flavor was amazing!!!👍👍👍

  • Reshma

    Wondering if you could use chicken instead of beef? Would you still marinade overnight?

    • Hi Reshma,

      Yes you can absolutely use chicken instead of beef in this recipe. I would still marinate it for at least an hour, or overnight.

      Thanks!

      Kelley

      • Karen

        If I substitute chicken for the beef, would I also use chicken broth instead of beef broth?

  • Lauren

    Made this last week for dinner. My husband and I love to try new recipes and joke afterwards about whether the recipe was worthy enough to go in the recipe box or not. If it’s worth making again then it goes in. This one went into the recipe box for sure.

    One thing I would change for the next time would be to only cook the ramen half way because then when it’s added into the sauce it continues to cook and you don’t want it to get too mushy.

  • Dennis

    I read comments from people who thought that this recipe was terrible.

    I followed the instructions of the recipe to the letter and was rewarded with a dish that was wonderful.

    To the extent that my thoughts might be of interest to anyone, I’ve lived in Manhattan’s Chinatown for 39 years and have been dining it the cuisine offered therein since 1978.

    I thank and praise Chef Savvey!

    • Hi Dennis,

      Thank you so much for your feedback!! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed this!

      Thanks again!

      Kelley

  • Heather

    My thoughts is it has potential with less sauce. The sauce to noodle ratio was off. I never thought I would say this but the flavors were too pungent and a bit salty so I had to add water to the dish to dilute it a bit, which made the noddles mushy. THe salty part was my fault because I forgot to get low sodium soy sauce. I’ll try again this time cutting the sauce down in half and maybe more veggies. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Hi Heather,

      Sorry about that! You could always cut the sauce ingredients in half and low sodium soy sauce with definitely help.

      Thanks!

  • Rachel k

    Made this several times and love it! This time I used some left over risotto and it was perfect! Thank you!

  • Shades McGuff

    No, I will not stand for this. Discarded the seasoning packs??? You are doing wrong by the name of Ramen Noodles. Yeah, it may have too much salt to kill a horse. But if you want to discard it, make a better sauce. Because you don’t put one out for the other.

  • joey

    I’ll bet that the people who found it too salty added the flavor packets instead of discarding them.

  • Kandess

    Hi 🙂 I really want to make this but I’m stumped, my local grocery store doesn’t carry rice wine vinegar, what can I replace that with??

    • Hi Kandess!

      You can go ahead and substitute the rice wine vinegar with regular vinegar or apple cider vinegar.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

      Kelley

      • jamie

        Does it matter if you don’t use soy and oyster sauce? I personally don’t care for either.
        But i’d love to try this recipe. Sounds great!

        • Hi Jamie!

          You could use coconut aminos instead for the soy sauce and hoisin for the oyster sauce.

          Thanks & Enjoy!

    • Sarah

      rice wine vinegar is also just labelled as rice vinegar. if you look in your asian food section I bet you might find that.

  • Taylor

    We loved it!
    Tweaks I made:
    Used Unsalted beef stock
    Low Sodium Soy sauce
    Drained the ramen, reserved 1 cup of ramen water to keep noodles loose.

    Teenager approved – of course, they eat anything.

  • Amanda

    Delicious and will definitely make it again. I added mushrooms and crushed red peppers too.

  • Sue

    Tried this recipe for dinner, followed all instructions, everything came out perfect, but waaay too salty! Had to throw most of it out !!!

    • Hi Sue,

      I am so sorry to hear this! Did you use low sodium soy sauce? That can make a huge difference.

      Thanks!
