Serves 4



2 (3-ounce) packets Instant ramen or other quick-cooking noodles, seasoning packets discarded 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 pound steak, cut into bite-size pieces (I used boneless chuck steak)

1/3 cup minced onion, any color

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1/2 cup beef broth

1/4 cup soy sauce 

1 tablespoons mirin 

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons of SPQR Seasonings MSG Seasoning

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chopped green onions for serving, optional 

Toasted sesame seeds for serving, optional



Cook the ramen noodles in a large pot of boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside. 

Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until no longer pink. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3 minutes, until soft. Add the beef broth, soy sauce, mirin, and sesame oil and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. 

Fold in the cooked ramen noodles and cook for 1 to 2 minutes to heat through, separating the noodles with a fork as they absorb the sauce. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. 

Top with green onions and sesame seeds, if using, and serve.
