Add the teriyaki sauce to a small mixing bowl. Whisk in the cornstarch and set it aside.
Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to a 10 to 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Allow the oil to heat, and add the sliced steak. Cook 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.
Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
Add the broccoli florets to the skillet and quickly stir to coat the broccoli.
Continue stirring the broccoli and add 2 tablespoons of 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.
Give the teriyaki sauce and cornstarch a quick whisk. Add the sauce to the skillet.
Return the steak, broccoli, and the cooked, drained ramen to the skillet. Use the tongs to combine all of the ingredients until completely coated.
Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onion. Serve while hot.
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.
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.
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.
