lean ground beef
1 medium head
bok choy, chopped
2 (3 ounce) packages
beef flavored ramen noodles
This soup is very tasty! The only changes I made were the following: I sauteed the beef with the onion and garlic before adding them to the soup. Instead of the ramen and the spice packets (because of the fat content of the ramen), I used the soft Asian noodles found near won ton wrappers in the store, and used beef broth instead of water and I doubled the amount. I also cut the soy sauce in half since the beef broth had salt.
I should have known this wouldn't be good based on the ingredients, but I wanted to use up some Bok Choy I had on hand. It didn't have much flavor and wasn't worth the sodium overload.
I make this soup often, it's delicious. For a change, I use 3 boneless chicken breasts cut up, change the Ramen to chicken flavor, and add cut up mushrooms. It's a keeper!
Wow! This is really delicious! I can't get over just how quick and easy this is! I only have one suggestion, and that is to crush the ramen noodles in their package prior to adding to the pot. I didn't and ended up having to deal with long, long strings of noodles that made eating this soup quite comical! This is gonna be a favorite this winter I can tell. I always keep frozen containers of browned meat, onion and garlic - this will be a snap to prepare!
What a great, quick recipe! I added some crushed red pepper to give it some zing. You could also add some more veggies. Perfect as a side dish or main entree. I will definitely make it again. Thanks!
So much flavor. I loved it and my 2 year old loved it too. Def. will make again.
I added mushrooms as well. Great touch!
Try adding water chestnuts and teriyaki sauce. Yum!!
This was quick and easy with items on hand. I used onion powder and ginger powder and, instead of bok choy I used romaine. It came out more of a noodle dish then a soup. It was great.
Not a low cal dish. Those noodles come pre-fried.
