30-Minute Ramen Beef & Broccoli Recipe Is Budget-friendly & Has Bold Flavors

Beef and broccoli is a classic Asian recipe, and who doesn't love ramen noodles? This easy ramen broccoli beef recipe combines the two!

Tender flank steak, crisp broccoli and ramen noodles are cooked in a rich, sweet, bold Asian sauce. The easy recipe is on the table in about 30 minutes. If you like things spicier, add some crushed red pepper flakes into the marinade and the sauce.

Cuisine: Asian / American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4



  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

Steak and Vegetables

  • 1 pound flank steak, cut into thin strips against the grain
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) ramen noodles (discard the seasoning packets)


  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a plastic food storage zipper bag. Season with black pepper. Add the beef and squeeze to mix and coat the meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
  2. Boil the ramen noodles for two minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and set aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meat in batches and brown on both sides. Remove to a plate.
  4. Add the broccoli florets and onion. Cook, stirring, about 2 to 3 minutes or until they begin to soften a bit. Remove to a plate.
  5. Add all the sauce ingredients to the skillet. Bring to a boil and cook until it reduces by about 1/3.
  6. Put the onions and broccoli back into the sauce. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes or until broccoli softens a bit.
  7. Add the beef and ramen noodles. Toss to coat. Garnish with chopped green onions and sliced hot peppers, if desired.

Note: If you want a thicker sauce, whisk in a little cornstarch into the sauce.
