Frugal Recipe of The Week- Ramen Noodle Stir Fry

Each week Budget Savvy Diva brings us a creative recipe that you can make on a budget. This week is one I have never thought of.What a great idea! Let me know if you try this!


Ramen Noodle Stir Fry



1 pkg. Ramen noodles

1/2 or full bag of generic frozen veggies (or fresh, in season)

Inexpensive cut of meat to match Ramen flavor; for “beef” use cube steak,
breakfast steak, etc.–whatever is on sale. Or go vegetarian, extra firm tofu,
cubed and seasoned is great too.

Your choice of spices.


Thinly slice or chop your choice of meat. Heat small amount of oil in wok or
large pan. Add meat and brown quickly. In another pot, boil noodles about 2
minutes. Remove meat and let sit on paper towel lined plate to remove excess
grease. Add veggies, Ramon flavor pack, any other seasoning (soy sauce, Chinese
five spice, curry, red pepper flakes… use your imagine or gear toward family
favorites). Add a splash of liquid (water, white wine, orange juice, etc…),
stir constantly. Add noodles and meat to warm through and mix flavors.

If you prefer a more “saucy” dish, thicken chicken or beef broth with cornstarch
and add to the veggies and beef. Leave noodles out and serve the mixture ON TOP
of plain noodles for best results.

Cheap, Fast, Variety.

Thank you Budget Savvy Diva!

    For a quick and easy meal try this. Cook ramen noodles as directed. At about a minute to go add a raw egg. Gently stir just enough to break it up a bit so you don’t just have one giant egg chunk. Cook until egg is done. Easy and yummy!
