Awesome Beef Ramen

If you ever find cheap steak on sale, this is a good recipe to use them for. The submitter recommends, “I buy thick cut beef chuck steak when it’s on sale. I then cut it into about 4 large pieces, trim the fat, put em into ziplocks and freeze." Also if you've never had sweet soy sauce, it's awesome!

  • Chuck steak, fat trimmed off
  • Ginger, fresh
  • garlic
  • sweet soy sauce
  • regular soy sauce
  • hot pepper flakes
  • beef broth
  • assorted vegetables (carrots, bok choy, green onions, etc)
  • dried shiitake mushrooms (optional)
  • chopped peanuts (optional)

To make this awesome ramen dish slice some semi-thawed beef across the grain very thin --as much as you think you want at one serving. put it in a ziplock bag. Add fresh ginger (slice with a potato peeler), finely minced garlic, sweet soy sauce, regular soy sauce, and hot red pepper flakes (take from a pizza place). Add some canned beef broth and mix. If you have any, chopped or ground dried shiitakes go good too. I make these in batches and freeze them as a mix with the steak. When you're ready to eat thaw a bag -- put it in a bowl -- add a brick of ramen and water to cover. You may also add your favorite chopped veggies (bok choy, carrots, green onions). Zap the whole mix in the microwave or cook in a pot until the ramen and steak are cooked. (If you've chopped the steak thin enough it will cook quickly.) Garnish with chopped peanuts if you like. Eat like a king for cheap!
