Asian Beef and Ramen Noodles

4-6 servings.
Prep Time : 15min
Cook Time : 20min
Beef is easier to slice thinly if it is partially frozen. Freeze the beef for 30 minutes before slicing.
2 Tbsp. oil
1 lb. beef top sirloin, thinly sliced and cut into wide strips - I bought this from the meat counter already cooked and it was SO GOOD
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. Oriental flavor instant ramen noodles
1 onion, diced - i use pre-diced frozen onion...
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups frozen broccoli and carrots, thawed and drained
1 red bell pepper, sliced
2 cups water
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 cups snow pea pods
Discard one seasoning packet from the ramen noodles and break the noodles into chunks.
If your meat is not yet cooked, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add thinly sliced beef and cook and stir for 3 minutes. Remove the meat and toss with 1/2 of one seasoning packet from the noodles. Set aside.
Add the onion, garlic, and the broccoli and carrots and saute until almost cooked, about 7 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the red bell pepper. Add water, ground ginger, noodles, rest of seasoning packet, and snow pea pods and stir. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the noodles and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add the beef and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute longer and serve.
