Gochujang Ramen with Beef Recipe
2oz Ramen noodles, dry
- a large pack of Ramen noodles
- brown rice millet noodles
8oz 90% lean ground beef
- 93% lean ground turkey
- 2 teaspoons white pepper (optional)
- 2 green onion stalks, chopped
1 tablespoon Gochujang chili paste
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- gluten free tamari
1 tablespoon raw honey
- maple or agave
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- white vinegar
- add more or less as needed
- 2 cups asparagus spears chopped
Boil water, add ramen noodles, and cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Mix together ingredients for the sauce and season to taste according to your liking. Set aside. Be mindful of ingredients that are calorie dense like sesame oil and honey, and the paste and soy sauce that are high in sodium.
Set a nonstick wok on high heat. Once hot, spray with oil and add the beef. Sprinkle in pepper and add green onion as you chop it up as it cooks, about 3 minutes.
Add the asparagus and toss together for 1 minute.
Reduce the heat to low or remove from the heat if the wok is too hot. Add the noodles and pour in the sauce. I like to use tongs to fold everything together.
Divide into 2 portions for meal prep or dinner, and enjoy this with a leafy green side salad.
