Ground Beef Noodle Stir Fry - Use up all those veggies in the easiest stir-fry of all! Quick, simple and completely customizable to what you have on hand!

Remember that time I went to Vegas?

That time I flew out for one night, eating my life away, ordering room service and making homemade noodles at Mr. Chow?

Ground Beef Noodle Stir Fry

Actually, to be honest, I didn’t have any success with the noodles. But nobody needs to know that.

Except I was completely inspired to make these ground beef noodles the minute I came home from my trip.

Then I ate noodles for days.

And tried again at the homemade noodle attempt. Still no success.

    I rate it 5 stars ⭐️ Amazing I want to make it again 

  2. So yummy. I didn’t have an onion so I added 1 Tbs of onion powder. I didn’t have fresh ginger so I used 1/2 tbs of ginger powder. And I switched out the soy sauce for coco aminos and the brown sugar with coconut sugar. I used rice dry Asian noodles And boiled them 3 minutes. And didn’t have green onions. It turned out so good. My kids asked me to make it for lunch tomorrow I will keep it in my rotation for sure

    So damn good! I made the recipe according to the directions, except I used a 12 oz bag of broccoli stir fry that had snow peas, and shredded cabbage. Next time however, I will increase the sauce by 1 1/2 times. I wasn’t a big fan of the hamburger so next time I will thinly slice some sirloin in place of the hamburger. I love this site, always so many great recipes to try.

  4. Absolutely fabulous. Delicious & will be one of my family’s favourite.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    It was AWESOME. My daughter made this for the family and everyone LOVED it. Can’t wait to serve it again!

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    My Kids loved this. Happy kids, happy mom 🙂

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    Delicious!  We all loved it — husband and son went back for seconds.  I doubled the sauce because I used 3 packets of noodles (I have big eaters in my house).  Loved this recipe!

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    This is a simple but great recipe!! Definitely recommend it for college/uni students who are tired of takeout and noodle packets

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    love it! Easy weeknight meal and a fav with my kids. I doubled the sauce

  10. Rated 4 out of 5

    Yummy! I made 1 1/2 times the sauce, added a touch more brown sugar & used Chinese dried egg noodles as I don’t care for Udon.  A great clean out your vegetable bin type of dish!

  11. Everything looks so delicious ! I started printing some out, then realized it’s getting to be too many…they all look so good haha. Can you please make a cookbook with your blog recipes 🙂 Thank you for your delicious recipes! I can’t wait to try them with my husband 🙂

  12. DELICIOUS—one of my favorite of your recipes!  I made with ground turkey and packaged shelf stable udon but no other changes.  

  13. Made this recipe today after searching online for “ground beef” recipes. It is delicious! I only used 1 TB rice wine vinegar instead of 2, because my husband is sensitive to the taste of all vinegars. He liked this very much and I will definitely make it again. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  14. this is a go-to recipe for me!! I modify it a tad with the veggie selection since we are not fans of broccoli and I used dried yakisoba noodles since I cannot find the refrigerated kind. but it is still a hit! My 1 year old loves it too!

  15. This dish is amazing! I loved it, my husband loved it and so did my 5 year old son. Fantastic!

  16. Excellent recipe, flavorful, and easy. My mom gave me refrigerated udon noodles from costco, and so glad i found this recipe. Sauce was savory and right balance of flavor. Otherwise, I would not have known what to make with those noodles! Thank you!

  17. My whole family (kids 7 and 4) LOVE this recipe, as we do many of your others. I am so grateful for all of your delicious meals that are simple enough for a beginner cook to make on a weeknight, and often even in one pot to minimize clean-up! I’ve really enjoyed cooking for the first time and watching my family devour home-cooked meals. THANK YOU!!!!

  18. I have one of THE pickiest toddlers ever who also happens to have multiple food allergies so finding recipes that are both safe AND that she’ll eat is always tricky. She absolutely LOVED this recipe :). We just substituted the sesame oil (one of her allergens) with olive oil and it was perfect. THANK YOU!!!

  19. This was DELICIOUS!!! I did double up the yummy saucer, added shredded carrots and used ready to eat stir fry noodles. I will DEFINITELY add this dish to my dinner rotation!

  20. Is there really that much sodium even with reduced sodium soy sauce? I live in China and can get the ingredients without a problem, but I thought using reduced-sodium soy sauce was supposed to make the overall sodium content more resonable.

  21. could you use regular sugar instead of brown sugar…?

  22. Although I usually make my bean sprout stirfry with ground beef, I’ve never seen it in Chinese restaurant dishes. I have to say I thought this was worthy of being in one. This was absolutely delicious and made me feel like I was eating take-out. Thanks for sharing!

  23. I made this a couple nights ago. It came together really fast and it was delicious! I ended up using 1/2 tsp of powdered ginger instead of the fresh ginger (due to time constraints) and it turned out great. Thanks for posting this!

  24. Yum!!!!! Really good and healthy. Thanks!!

  25. Just made this tonight and it was so delicious!! My entire family gobbled it up. Had to keep hubby from licking his plate! Will definitely be making this again. The sauce was to die for. I will use this in other recipes. The only thing I substituted was Tamari sauce for the soy sauce. Thank you!!!

  26. Nice easy, quick and tastes great recipe. A good change from my old meat and tomato sauce over spaghetti noodles

  27. WOULD THIS BE GOOD, SERVED OVER JASMINE RICE?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  28. I used ramen kindles instead. Was a little salty, I would skip adding salt next time, soy sauce was plenty enough.

  29. Always wanted to know…can you leave out the sugar? I don’t like sweet foods so will this be fine without sugar or would there be something else I could replace it with to make it more complex?

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  30. Where would I find these noodles? I looked in Kroger, Giant Eagle and Meijer (my local grocery chains). Can I substitute something else as this looks really good.

  31. This was delish! my son declared it in his top 3 favorite recipes and asked for it weekly! that’s when you know it’s a keeper recipe! 🙂

  32. Can I use mirin? Could not fine rice wine vinegar. Want ti make this for lunch today.

  33. This was absolutely fantastic!!!! It’s going into our recipe box (and that takes a lot to do). Thank you for all your recipes!!!

  34. Udon is my favorite noodle and I’ve been experimenting with it lately, it seems like it can go perfectly with any stir fry recipe. Love the color combination and the vegetables used, and most of all the fact that it doesn’t take a long time to prepare.

  35. This looked so good and easy that I had to make it for my husband and son.  I made it exactly as written (and added a healthy squeeze of Sriracha) and it was a HUGE hit!  We all loved it and even though my skillet was overflowing, there was barely anything left in the pan when they were done.  I made it again tonight and added more garlic and ginger this time because I just LOVE garlic and ginger together.  Thank you for this recipe — I’ve only just come across your recipes on Pinterest and am so happy I did!

  36. just made it and it was delicious! Damn delicious :)!! Mind you I haven’t even heard of udon noodles before , but to my surprise  I  was able to find them in Walmart. Thank you for this yummy recipe.

  37. Looks delish! can’t wait to try! I’ve already made a few of your recipes and love them. 

  38. This was fantastic! My 3 kiddos licked their plates clean!

  39. Hello,

    Do you mean 2 x 7 oz of noodles so 14 oz of noodles in total?

    Thank you!

  40. This was my second recipe I have made from you, 
    One pan chicken bruschetta was the first.  Amazing first recipe, but I have to say my husband went nuts over this one..:). He is a stir fry snob, so this was a big deal.  The sauce was ahhmazing.. can use for a lot.  We sautéed mushrooms beforehand and added later which he loved.  
    Couldn’t find udon noodles or even yokisaba.. Used Hokkien stir fry noodles.. was a little worried but man did it turn out great…:). Thanks Chunga!

  41. thanks for this recipe, who knew ground beef (or whatever protein is on hand, as you suggest) plus noodles, love ground beef in all its traditional pairings, but this looks really interesting!

  42. This should read… I love your recipes….

  43. I look all your receipts.  Your dishes makes my mouth salivate, but I don’t think I will be able to make this dish.  It looks so yummy.  

  44. Noodles aren’t the easiest to whip up but eating my way through a Vegas trip sounds really appetizing!

  45. Amazing recipe! Easy. I used ramen kindles instead. Was a little salty, I would skip adding salt next time, soy sauce was plenty enough.

  46. still yet to cook with udon noodles. Looks delicious though.

  47. I found dry udon noodles at my grocery store. How are they different from refrigerated? They tasted great but I was surprised by the sodium content! Thanks!

  48. Where would I find these noodles? I looked in Kroger, Giant Eagle and Meijer (my local grocery chains). Can I substitute something else as this looks really good.

  49. What can I use because my store does not carry regrigerated udon noodles?
