Asian Beef with Noodles (303 Calories)


This dish is simple and inexpensive, but it wasn’t really my favorite. Although it was good it did not have the flavor I was looking for. It’s worth trying that’s for sure because it is good and it is easy.  Another great thing is that it’s low in calories for dinner if you add nice salad to the mix don’t make the mistake I did and add eggrolls. The calories were a bit too high!!


Ingredients:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 diced bell pepper
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) Beef Ramen noodles, crumbled
  • 2-1/2 cups water

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ¾ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 bouillon cube
  • 1-2 tbsp. soy sauce (I used 2 start with 1)
  • Salt as desired

Directions
  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until no longer pink add diced onion and bell pepper cook until tender; drain.
  2. Add the contents of one Ramen noodle flavoring packet; stir until dissolved. Remove beef and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, combine the water, vegetables, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder,  bouillon cube , noodles and contents of remaining flavoring packet. Bring to a boil.
