Easy Beef and Broccoli Ramen Stir Fry

This easy stir fry is a one-pot dinner twist on the classic Chinese takeout beef and broccoli dish. One complete filling meal and it’s on the table in less than 30 minutes!

Beef and Broccoli Ramen Stir Fry

How to Prep Beef for Stir Fry

To prepare the beef for cooking, I recommend trimming off any large pieces of fat from the steak and then slicing it into about 1/4-inch thick strips. Some steaks will have a grain to them, and if yours does, you should slice against the grain, which will lead to a more tender finished steak. Don’t use roast cuts such as chuck roast or round roast, or something like skirt steak, which can be tough if not cooked correctly.

Which Ramen Noodles to Use for Stir Fry

I use cheap soba noodles for this stir fry. Nothing fancy,but you can use a wide range of noodles for this dish. Just discarded the seasoning packet. Don’t worry, the homemade sauce is way much better!

How to Make the Stir Fry Sauce

This sauce has a fair number of ingredients in it, but they are all doing something. The soy sauce and sesame oil give a savory umami taste; the honey and hoisin sauce bring some sweetness to it, and the garlic and ginger add a bright aromatic flavor.

Beef and Broccoli Ramen Stir Fry

The recipe makes a lot of sauce. I like this recipe to be pretty saucy, like you would get from a Chinese takeout box. But if you are worried it’s too much sauce, start by adding half of it to the stir fry and then taste. Add more if you think it needs more. If you do have leftover sauce, it keeps fine in the fridge for a week.

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

This casserole pie has been loved by many since it was first baked back in the mid-century and these recipes are often passed down through generations. There are lots of variations of this family favourite recipe, but one of the favorite definitely the one with Bisquick variety!

Bisquick is a super handy pre-mixed baking mix that’s made with flour, baking powder, shortening, and salt. It really speeds up the baking process and it’s something I couldn’t do without at this stage! It’s a great way of cutting corners and reducing time in the kitchen without having a terrible effect on the overall quality of your meal (it really doesn’t!).

How to Make Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

You will need one pound of lean ground beef for this recipe. For the veggie you only need an onion. I like sweet onions especially when they are cooked. Other ingredients are cheddar cheese, milk, onion soup mix, Bisquick and eggs.

The first step is to cook the ground beef and onions. Add both ingredients to a large skillet and cook until the beef is browned and the onion is softened. Drain the grease and then spread the mixture in a 9-inch greased pie pan.

Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the meat.

In a bowl, whisk together milk, onion soup mix, Bisquick and eggs. Pour this mixture into the pie pan.

Bake for 25 minutes at 400F. Let cool for a few minutes before cutting into slices to serve.

Homemade Sweet and Sour Meatballs

How Do You Make Sweet And Sour Meatballs

This recipe starts with homemade meatballs, which are a combination of lean ground beef, egg, seasonings, onion and breadcrumbs. You can make the size of your meatballs as you like. I preferebly about 1 inch in diameter.
I usually make these meatballs with 90% lean ground beef, but you could use ground turkey or ground pork if you prefer. The meat mixture shaped into balls, then broiled until browned. The meatballs go into a crock pot along with a two ingredient sauce of grape jelly and chili sauce. Let everything simmer together for a while, and then you’ll be ready to eat!

For this recipe, the sweet and sour sauce is made with grape jelly and chili sauce, which are whisked together then poured over the meatballs. Chili sauce is a thick red condiment similar to ketchup but with a bit of a spicy kick. These meatballs clock in on the mild side of the heat scale, because the sweetness of the jelly tempers the bit of heat from the chili sauce. If you’re adverse to any type of spice, you can substitute ketchup instead.

Homemade Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This recipe is a great candidate for the freezer! You can freeze your meatballs with or without the sauce, them warm them through either in the slow cooker or on the stove top. Your sauce may have a thinner consistency upon thawing, so if you’d like a thicker sauce, you can add a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of cold water to your pot, then simmer until thickened.

Once you try these easy meatballs, you’ll find yourself making them on a regular basis! No one will know how simple they are to make, but you’ll get plenty of compliments from family and friends.

The Best Creamy Beef and Shells

These Creamy Beef and Shells ìs a delìcìous, quìck, sìmple pasta dìsh that ìs perfect for the whole famìly all week long! So creamy, meaty, cheesy, flavorful and so comfortìng!! You can finish cooking this in under 30 minutes! Everyone even kìds wìll love ìt!

 

The Best Creamy Beef and Shells

With the perfect combination of marinara sauce and dairy, makes it so tasty and yummy. You’ll have carbs and protein in single dish and that will makes this hearty and filling. And also, you get all kinds of savory flavors from the aromatics and the different herbs and seasonings.

How Do You Make Beef And Shells?

The whole thing couldn’t be easier. You’ll season and brown ground beef; add pasta shells, savory beef broth, and marinara sauce; and then finish off the whole skillet with a little cream and a lot of cheese.

If you’ve ever made a one-pot pasta, you know that cooking the pasta directly in the sauce is a shortcut to creaminess, because as it cooks the pasta releases starch that thickens the cooking liquid. In this beefy version, we’re upping the creaminess factor by finishing the dish with a bit of cream. You can use half-and-half in a pinch, but we prefer heavy cream. As for the cheese, sharp white cheddar is our favorite — but Colby Jack and mild cheddar also work well.

The Best Creamy Beef and Shells

Cook the pasta: Follow the instructions on the packaging.
Sauté the meat: In a skillet, brown the ground beef, drain the excess fat, then, set aside.
Make the sauce: In the same large skillet, sauté onion and garlic. Stir in the flour for about a minute. Slowly stir in the stock, marinara sauce, and the herbs and seasonings. Let the whole thing boil and thicken.
Combine: Add in the pasta, meat, heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Then, add in the sour cream and cheese.
Serve: Once the cheese has melted, serve it while hot!

Tips:
You can choose from penne, elbow macaroni, or rotini as a substitute for the shells.
To prevent the pasta from being soggy, you can cook it just al dente so that when you combine it with the sauce, further cooking will not make it too mushy.
You can vegetables like bell peppers and carrots.
