Asian Beef & Broccoli With Noodles

Asian stir fry, never been a fan until now!!!  I have to say that this was my favorite recipe out of all the beef ones I did this week.  I didn’t know what to expect using the ramen noodles but was very happy with this dish!  And it wasn’t just me either, the entire family  loved it.  I’m telling you, I have hard time getting my oldest to eat vegetables  but he really enjoyed this and said it was his second favorite.  My toddler gobbled it up like there was no tomorrow and we all had fun sitting and chatting at the table while eating this dish.  Great family time.

This was so easy to make and really is a 30 minute meal.  Yes, I did have one problem this recipe. I know, I know….my small town doesn’t make it easy on me to say the least but I had a hard time finding a lean cut of meat for this recipe.  So pretend it is one and we’re all good.

I had a lot of fun making these beef recipes this week.  I felt like stepped outside my comfort zone and was open to the new dishes.  I’m glad I did because they were all great! Beef, it really is what’s for dinner ’round here!

P.S. Keep your eyes open for a little surprise tomorrow.

    I made this tonight for dinner – everyone liked it! I added some fresh grated ginger and fresh minced garlic when I first put the broccoli and carrots in. When I added the noodles and water I also added a bit of soy sauce. Oh, and I tossed in some chopped green onions at the end also.
