Beef Ramen Soup for One

I love ramen, but monosodium glutamate (MSG) makes me ill. When I saw that you can buy uncooked ramen noodles in the Asian food section of the grocery store, I was hooked! My favorite brand is Hokan—curly noodles. They only take three minutes to cook!  This is a really quick recipe that I like to make myself for lunch.

Beef Ramen Soup for One
2.5 oz. Hokan curly noodles (one sheet)
2 cups beef broth
1 cup water
1 tsp. peanut oil
3 oz.  lean stir-fry beef, cut into strips
2 tsp. soy sauce
Ground ginger and garlic powder
1 green onion, chopped

Sear the stir fry beef a bit in the peanut oil. Add the broth and water and bring to a boil. (The beef will continue to cook through as the water boils.) Pour in the soy sauce and add a dash of ginger and garlic powder. When the water has boiled, add the curly noodles. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into a big bowl. Garnish with the chopped green onion.

Time to slurp! Enjoy!
