Beef Ramen Stir Fry Ingredients

You’ll need:

For the Sauce

  • 1 (12.25-ounce) container of teriyaki sauce 
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch

For the Beef and Noodles

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided into 2 tablespoons and 1 tablespoon)
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages of instant ramen noodles (discard flavor packets), cooked and drained according to package directions
  • 1 pounds patio steak (sliced 2 inches long and ¼ inch thick)
  • 2½ cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced green onions (optional garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (optional garnish)

PRO TIP:

You don’t need the seasoning packet that comes in the ramen packages. You can either toss them or keep them for another recipe in the future.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

HONEY: You can add 1 to 2 teaspoons of honey if you prefer a sweeter sauce. 

STEAK: You can substitute 1 pound of flank steak for the patio steak if you can’t find patio steak at your local grocery store.

SPICE: Red pepper flakes or sriracha sauce added to the sauce would take the spice up a notch in this tasty recipe.

VEGGIES: You can add other veggies that you enjoy in your stir fry recipes. Try snow peas, bell peppers, bok choy, bean sprouts, or water chestnuts.

VEGETARIAN: If you would like to make this broccoli ramen stir fry recipe vegetarian, you can replace the beef with tofu for a delicious vegetarian option.

OIL: Sesame oil would also work in place of the vegetable oil in this recipe.

How to Make This Beef Ramen Stir Fry Recipe

STEP ONE: Add the teriyaki sauce to a small mixing bowl. Whisk in the cornstarch and set it aside.

STEP TWO: Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If you have a wok that you use to make stir fry recipes, you are more than welcome to use it instead of the skillet.

STEP THREE: Allow the oil to heat, and add the sliced steak. Cook beef for 2 minutes before using tongs to turn the meat. Cook for another 2 minutes before turning again. Once the steak is seared, transfer to a large heat-safe bowl.

STEP FOUR: Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. 

STEP FIVE: Add the broccoli florets to the skillet and quickly stir to coat the broccoli. 

STEP SIX: Continue stirring the broccoli and add 2 tablespoons of cold water. Continue stirring until the broccoli is a bright green. Transfer the broccoli to the bowl containing the cooked steak. Return the skillet to the heat.

STEP SEVEN: Give the teriyaki sauce and cornstarch a quick whisk. Add the sauce to the skillet. 

STEP EIGHT: Return the steak, broccoli, and the cooked, drained ramen to the skillet. Use the tongs to combine all of the ingredients until completely coated. 

PRO TIP:

If the cooked ramen noodles become a bit stuck together before adding it to the skillet, you can run warm water over the ramen; just be sure to drain the water off before adding it to the skillet. Ramen is a very forgiving and easy noodle to handle.
