Miso Ramen with Marinated Beef and Vegetables

Ingredient List
1/2 Cucumber thinly Sliced
Miso Paste (Cook’s Preference)
Ramen Noodles (Cook’s Preference)
Roasted Black Sesame Seeds and Coarse Salt Mixture for garnish
32 ounces Unsalted Chicken Broth
Marinade:
Sprinkle of Black Pepper
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1-2 tablespoons Garlic Powder
1-2 tablespoons Ginger Powder
Drizzle of Grapeseed Oil
1 pound Lean Ground Beef
1 Leek thinly sliced
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
Handful of Spinach chopped

Marinade beef and vegetables first:

  • Using a mixing a bowl, place in BEEF, LEEK, and SPINACH
  • Then cover with SOY SAUCE, BROWN SUGAR, GARLIC POWDER, GINGER POWDER, and BLACK PEPPER
  • Mix the ingredients together until the ingredients are well incorporated together
  • Then drizzle GRAPESEED OIL on top
  • Let the ingredients marinade for at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator and no longer than 24 hours before cooking

Next, cook ramen noodles and create broth separately:

  • Take out a saucepan and fill with UNSALTED CHICKEN BROTH
    • Bring the broth to a high heat, but not boiling
    • Once the broth is hot add in MISO PASTE using a large spoon or hand mixer
    • Mix the MISO into the hot water until it dissolves completely
  • Take out another saucepan and fill with water about half way
    • Raise the heat so the water comes to a boil
    • Once the water is boiling, lower the heat to medium high and gently drop in RAMEN NOODLESRamen Noodles for Beef and Vegetable Miso Ramen
      • I used Shangdong Ramen Noodles, but you can use any ramen noodle. These happened to be the ones I could find in the store.
    • Cook ramen noodles according to the instructions on the package
    • Once the noodles reach the consistency you like immediately drain the water out and place noodles aside
      • You want to stop the cooking process before the noodles become overly saturated with water and mushy

Cook the marinated beef and vegetables:

  • Using a flat pan, sauce pan, or wok take the marinated beef and vegetables and cook on medium or high heat until the ground beef is cooked
    • I even put in the sauce. Everything in the marinade gets cooked.  When plating, the marinade mixed with the miso broth is delicious!

Add a refreshing and cool bite with cucumbers (optional):

  • Take the CUCUMBER and slice thinly
  • Top with BLACK SESAME SEEDS and COARSE SALT MIXTURE
    • This is a Japanese condiment called gomasio and can be purchased in an Asian market or online

Put it all together:

  • Take a bowl and fill with miso broth, then noodles, then top with marinated beef and vegetables, and cucumber slices

Serve and enjoy!
