Skillet Ramen with Beef and Spinach
Make Again: Yes
Recipe Source: The Best Skillet Recipes
I don't have The Best Skillet Recipes, and those recipes are not online. But I do have the Best of America's Test Kitchen 2010, and this is one of the featured recipes.
I loved it. So simple and fast. It just happens that I found a small piece of flank steak in my freezer (single serving size) and I had one package of ramen noodles, so I cut the recipe in 1/4. It worked out perfectly (although it did involve more math than I wanted while cooking.)
I skipped the Shiitake mushrooms, since I don't like them, and that was fine. The broth made from garlic, ginger, chicken broth, sherry and soy sauce was very flavorful. (You throw away the seasoning packet.) I wasn't sure about having baby spinach wilted in the broth (I don't love it wilted) but it tasted good.
I will definitely have to purchase some more ramen noodles and cut up some flank steak into smaller pieces and freeze so I can make this quick dinner when I am eating along and short on time.
