Preparing the Gochujang Ramen Noodles with Beef

Take a culinary journey with the Gochujang Ramen with Beef, a dish that brings the spiciness and robust flavors of Gochujang chili sauce to a satisfying bowl of ramen. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the brown rice millet noodles for about 4 minutes or until tender. After draining, lay the noodles aside to prepare for the next flavor combination.

Mix low-sodium soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, raw honey, and gochujang chili paste to create a unique sauce. Season to taste, taking into account the high-calorie content of components such as sesame oil and honey, as well as the salt level in the gochujang paste and soy sauce.

Add the 90% lean ground beef to a nonstick wok that has been sprayed with oil and placed over high heat. Let the steak simmer for around three minutes before adding chopped green onions and seasoning with white pepper. Add the chopped asparagus and mix until well combined, about 1 more minute.

If needed, turn down the heat to low or take the wok off of the burner. Pour the carefully prepared sauce over the cooked noodles. Gently fold everything together with tongs so that the savory Gochujang deliciousness coats every piece.

To make a well-rounded meal, divide the recipe into two servings and serve it with a leafy green side salad for real prep or dinner.

Gochujang Ramen Dietary Considerations 

Gochujang paste and soy sauce contribute significantly to the high salt content of this dish. If your lifestyle is less active or you are on a lower salt diet, you might want to modify the recipe or leave out the soy sauce and the gochujang paste. Enjoy the hearty tastes of this Gochujang Ramen with Beef, but keep your dietary requirements and preferences in mind.

If you are watching your salt consumption or are on a lower sodium diet, you might want to modify this recipe for Gochujang Ramen with Beef. To better suit nutritional needs, the significant salt level in Gochujang paste and soy sauce can be decreased or eliminated. Furthermore, feel free to proportionally increase the quantity of the sauce components if you would like a meal with more sauce. This makes it possible to personalize the experience to fit each person’s dietary needs and taste preferences. Playing around with the proportions of the ingredients guarantees that this tasty ramen meal will always be a satisfying and nutritious choice for everyone.

Ingredients

2 Servings
Serving Size:332g
* Optional Substitution Note
  • 2oz Ramen noodles, dry
    • brown rice millet noodles
    • a large pack of Ramen noodles
  • 8oz 90% lean ground beef
    • 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper (optional)
  • 2 green onion stalks, chopped
Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Gochujang chili paste
    • sriracha
  • 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
  • 1oz water
    • add more or less as needed
  • 2 cups asparagus spears chopped

Steps

Step 1

Boil water, add ramen noodles, and cook until soft, about 4 minutes.  Drain and set aside.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Add the asparagus and toss together for 1 minute.

Step 5

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.

CAUTION: this recipe is particularly high in sodium because of the gochujang paste and soy sauce.  If you are following a lower sodium diet, or are not active, I recommend removing the soy sauce or even skipping this recipe.

    I’m really glad I found this recipe since I don’t often get a chance to use gochujang. I made a couple of tweaks based on preference/availability and it’s still so good since the base is the same:
    -store-bought momofuku noodles
    -tofu instead of ground meat
    -Veggies options: bok choy and edamame
    -I’m working on doing a good soft-boil egg since I tend to be impatient but it’s a great addition!
    I’ve already made it a few times and will be making it again this week.
