$5 Ramen Makeover

My sister-in-law, Danielle, has several super easy & delicious recipes. I stopped by their house the other night and she had dinner on the stove. She told me how easy and good the Ramen recipe was that I couldn’t wait to try it! I was able to get all of the ingredients for under $5!


You start out by browning your ground beef in a skillet. Drain off the grease, if there is any. (That is one thing I love about Natural/super lean meat is there usually isn’t any grease.) Next, chop up your green onions and mix them in. Add in 1 cup of water and the seasoning packet from 1 package of Ramen. Break up your 2 noodle packets really well and then stir them in. (I had some that I didn’t break up very well and they were chewy.) Once everything is in the skillet cover and cook for about 6 minutes on Med-high heat. I also added a few red pepper flakes for flavor.

Danielle always serves hers with a side of Edamame, which I think would go well. Mine was pretty meaty so next time I think I would either add an extra pack of Ramen and 1/2 cup more water or save some of the meat to top pizzas. Overall, I give the recipe an A+ for flavor and value!
