Let’s face it. There are some days, actually many days that we just don’t feel like cooking a big, complicated meal (although the one below looks delish!). It’s been a long day and you’re tired. Your brain and your body are just done for the day.
It’s nice to have a one pot fully loaded meal that has only a few ingredients, is prepped and cooked quickly and simply.
This IS that meal. I actually based meal this on one of my Grandmother’s recipes and tweeked it a little. It’s SO easy and So yummy. You’ll love it!
Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
1 LB GROUND BEEF or GROUND TURKEY
2 PKGS INSTANT ORIENTAL FLAVOR RAMEN NOODLES
2 CUPS FROZEN VEGETABLE MIXTURE
¼ TSP GARLIC POWDER
1/4 CUP THINLY SLICED ONION
In a large nonstick skillet, brown meat over medium-high heat 10-12 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up into ¼”pieces. Remove with slotted spoon to a bowl and pour off drippings.
In the same skillet, combine 2 1/2 cups of water, vegetables, noodles (broken up), garlic powder and ramen seasoning packets.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Cover, and simmer 5-6 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
Return beef to skillet and stir in onion. Makes 4 servings (2 if you eat like my husband )
