Beef and Broccoli Ramen

So I finally went out and bought a cast iron skillet. I have to say it’s the best thing I have every bought. I never thought I would ever say cookware is something I would be proud of. I made this recipe in a skillet and it made it so much better. The broccoli was soft and crunchy. My picky son loved it as well, he even went back for seconds and thirds.

Beef and Broccoli Ramen


  • 2 tablespoons Oil (Divided)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 packets ramen noodles (seasoning packet discarded (3 ounces each))
  • 1lb flank steak or skirt steak (thinly sliced against the grain)
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 cups broccoli


  • sesame seeds for garnish


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (depending on how spicy you would like it)


Step 1
