Ground Beef Ramen Noodles Recipe: An Asian Slow-cooker Recipe That's Mouth Watering

Ramen noodles are one of my favorite things. There's nothing like a big bowl of ramen for lunch or dinner. I also love cooking with ramen noodles, like my ramen beef and broccoli, five-minute chicken ramen soup with dill and creamy ramen sausage skillet. This slow-cooker ground beef ramen noodle recipe was the latest recipe I tried using dry ramen noodles. This Asian recipe packs a lot of flavor!

The ramen noodle recipe is a cinch to make. Brown some ground beef in a skillet and put it into a slow cooker. Add matchstick carrots, chopped red bell pepper, chopped green onions, fresh garlic, low-sodium soy sauce, brown sugar and chicken broth. Give it a good stir, cover and cook on high heat for about four hours. When you're 30 minutes out from dinner, add the dry, uncooked ramen noodles, cover and cook until noodles soften.

The flavors are pretty intense in this recipe. Be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce and there's no need to add more salt when cooking. Season with black pepper. Next time I'm going to add a few squirts of sriracha for a hint of heat. Serve these beef ramen noodles with crispy egg rolls or your favorite side dishes.
