The temperatures here in Phoenix are finally starting to drop a little bit, and that means it's time to break out the sweaters and the slow cookers!

Soups, stews, roasts, casseroles, you name it! Fall means plenty of time to enjoy comforting recipes that bring you warmth when it's cooler outside. This last week, Adam and I brought the slow cooker out of storage and used it for the first time since last winter (we enjoyed a delicious roast, vegetables, and some potato wedges!) 

A couple of days ago, Adam said he wanted some ramen for dinner and I laughed because I have not thought about ramen since I was a college student at Arizona State University (anyone who's had to scrape by through eating ramen for lunch and dinner to save money knows what I am talking about right now). 

At first, I kind of shrugged it off like it was a silly idea and thought about buying another roast, but then I remembered I saw that P.F. Chang's® Home Menu sauces made a new Mongolian sauce while I was grocery shopping at Walmart and thought it would be perfect for an easy, homemade ramen dinner that wouldn't taste like the kind of ramen I had back when I was in school. So I drew together a quick list of what I needed, drove a couple of minutes down the street to Walmart, and picked up everything I needed to make this easy, delicious Mongolian beef ramen recipe!













Mongolian Beef Ramen
*makes 4 servings 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 packages of ramen noodles (6 OZ or 170g, no seasoning)
  • 4 cups of water
  • 3 cups of broccoli florets
  • 1/2 lb of beef top sirloin steak
  • 1/2 cup of Mongolian style bbq sauce (NEW P.F. Chang's® Home Menu Sauces available at Walmart)
  • 3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup of green onion, chopped

Directions: 

  1. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Trim the beef top sirloin steak into small, bite-sized pieces and toss them in the skillet. 
  3. Cook the steak on medium heat, and halfway through cooking, pour in 1/4 cup of Mongolian style bbq sauce. 
  4. Once the steak is cooked, move it to the side of the skillet and pour the broccoli into the skillet and begin warming the broccoli florets. 
  5. Break apart the ramen noodle blocks and toss away any seasoning packets that come with them (if you are buying the standard single-serve packets of ramen noodles they often come with seasoning packets). 
  6. Place the ramen noodles on top of the broccoli and steak, and pour 4 cups of water into the skillet. 
  7. Turn the heat on the skillet to high, and watch as the water begins to boil. 
  8. Move the ramen noodles so that they are submerged under the water so you can ensure that they will cook. Pour in the remaining 1/4 cup of Mongolian sauce and the sesame seeds.
  9. Once the noodles are submerged and the water is boiling, continue to work the noodles so that they spread and once they are cooked turn the heat on the skillet down to warm. 
  10. Serve and enjoy!

  1. What a great idea to use ramen more than just boring soup. I so miss having ramen since I switched to gluten free years ago.

  2. This sounds absolutely amazing. I know that it is not trendy and popular to admit to liking ramen noodles, but I totally love them and have been preparing them in different ways for years. This recipe sounds like a winner. I'll definitely have to check out those new P.F. Chang sauces.

  8. I am on a very low sodium diet. PF Changs has wayyy too much sodium in in. Any suggestions of what I could use as a substitue? BBQ sauce with maybe some cayenne pepper?? Thanks

    1. There are loads of homemade Mongolian sauce recipes on Pinterest made with low-sodium soy sauce. I'm not sure how comfortable you are with making your own sauce or how convenient or not that may be (not really as ideal as being able to use over the counter sauce like this one), but you could also something like this: http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/mongolian-grill-style-mongolian-sauce-454631#activity-feed Hope that's helpful!
