In need of a quick dinner? I’ve got you covered with this 5 ingredient beef and pepper ramen that only takes 20 minutes to make!
After your truly amazing response to 5 ingredient ramen with an egg, I’m back with another ramen recipe. This one has beef and peppers which are cooked to perfection in a Thai sweet chili sauce and then sits atop a bed of ramen noodles.
I think I know why the ramen with an egg recipe went over so well with you guys, heck, I make it about once (ok, you got me, probably more like twice) a week: it’s super easy, quick, and suuuuuper delicious. Over 10 of you made it and sent me amazing photos and reader recreations (I’m still in the process of updating the reader recreations, I’m just a little behind so please forgive me and keep ’em coming!)
Even though some people might think that ramen is just a budget college food I would argue that it’s becoming super ‘hip’ and ‘trendy’! Mix it with a few other ingredients and dinner is served (while still being a super budget friendly meal!)
When I’m running short on time during the week (which is pretty much always) I love making this dish. You slice a bell pepper and start cooking it, then you’ll add in Thai sweet chili sauce (which is such a great sauce and can be found in your local grocery store or you can buy a big jar of it on amazon which is exactly what I’m going to do – because this stuff is so friggin good) and then add the beef and peppers over ramen noodles (I cook them like noodles and drain the water so that it’s not a soupy dish.) If you’re ever in need of a super quick and delicious dinner idea, this beef ramen with peppers would make an excellent choice!
