Korean Beef Casserole


Nothing says budget quite like Ramen but in addition to being affordable this make-shift recipe is delicious, includes  protein and even vegetables (which is needed in our house). The meat portion is based on Damn Delicious’ Korean Beef Bowl but I changed it up a little. Since most of these ingredients are staples of our fridge/pantry, I can feed the fam (with leftovers) for $10 or less with this meal.

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
1 tablespoon (squeeze) ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 pound ground beef
8oz bag coleslaw
3 packets Beef flavor Ramen

Boil water in 12 quart pot.

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook about 1 minute. Add ground beef and cook until browned (drain excess fat).

In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and ginger.

Stir in soy sauce mixture to beef and bring to simmer.

Put Ramen noodles in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes until tender. Add seasoning packets and stir.

Turn off heat to beef and add coleslaw.

Put drained noodles in serving pan and cover with beef mixture.

Bon appetit!

  1. Sounds delish! I’m sure my family would love it. I bet it would be great with ground turkey or chicken also. How many servings do you think? I’m thinking I may have to double it for my crew.
