Ramen Noodle Skillet Supper uses affordable ramen noodles with ground beef and veggies to create the most flavorful and simple stir fry!

A FAMILY FAVORITE DINNER

This ramen noodle skillet meal is something just a bit different than my usual weeknight meals. It’s super simple to make and you only need one pan and five ingredients. Plus, you get lots of good, flavorful veggies in there too! It also reheats well if you have leftovers.

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS EASY ONE PAN MEAL:

  • For those of you with salt or sodium sensitivities, you can replace the beef packets and water in this recipe with low sodium beef broth.
  • Ground turkey can be substituted for the ground beef. Or just leave the meat out entirely if you prefer.
  • Try making this with other flavors of ramen noodles like chicken, soy sauce or vegetable ramen.
  • This really is a whole meal in one so it doesn’t really need a side dish. However, if you’d like, try serving it with a homemade Asian Milk Bread.

    The whole family liked it. I made my own stir fry sauce because I thought I had some on hand but didn’t. To use what I had on hand, vegetables used were shredded carrot, sliced celery, onion, can of mushrooms and diced zucchini. I also used Orpington Farms low sodium beef broth base with water instead of the ramen packets. Very good recipe that is very interchangeable.

    This looked so good and I love ramen, I tried it and gave some to all of my friends in my senior building and we all loved it. Would love more recipes like this one. Love hotdish but I don’t have many recipes for them

  3. The stir-fry sauce. Do you use the bottled stir-fry sauce? It is very thick and sweet. Is there an option here? Thanks.

    I have been making this for quite awhile. It’s a favorite and so easy! Sometimes I add some real ginger grated or some dried ginger….So yummy, even the leftovers are good the next day. We usually serve it with crunchy noodles and pineapple slices with some egg rolls on the side to balance it all out!

    I used to make this for my boys when they were much younger and they loved it. You can change up the stir fry sauce and the veggies don’t have to be frozen. Never any leftovers! Thanks for sharing this one!

  8. Do you ever make smoothies? If so, could you possibly include a few? I always love to make your recipes. My family says to each other, “Mom is in a cooking frenzy this week!” They love it!
    Thank you, Marlene

    My son loves this recipe. Since we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel, we are making it a lot! I am going to try doing a chicken version for a little variety.

  10. This was delicious and so easy! I made it with chicken flavored ramen noodles and chicken breast instead of beef..now one of my favorites! Every single recipe I've tried from your blog is fabulous!

  11. I would love to win this cookbook. I need quick and easy meal ideas!! I tend to stick with the same old stuff and really want to venture out of my comfort zone!
