Quick Ramen Noodle Stir Fry

You have no idea how much I love a good stir fry. It’s always so quick to whip up, and you can essentially use up anything and everything in your fridge – making it cheap and budget-friendly.

And that’s exactly what this is. It doesn’t require too many ingredients, and by using ground beef and instant ramen noodles, this dish can’t come together any quicker.

The noodles just need 3-4 minutes to get nice and tender while your ground beef gets that beautiful crumble before you stir in the sauciest of all sauces that require only a few pantry staples.

From there, you can stir in those softened ramen noodles to sop up all those saucy bits.

You’ll be amazed as to how quickly this really comes together – 30 minutes or less from start to finish. Not to mention how many requests you’ll get for seconds and thirds guaranteed!
