Recipe Notes

  • If you like things spicier, add some crushed red pepper flakes into the marinade and the sauce.
  • If you want a thicker sauce, whisk in a little cornstarch into the sauce.

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.
