Szechuan Beef Noodles

A tangy delicious take on ramen

I got Hello Fresh meals for a couple years, and out of all those recipes this is the first one I was tempted to buy the ingredients for and make outside of their meal delivery system.

Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil.


Cook the meat. Head a drizzle of oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add beef; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes.


Stir in cabbage; cook until tender, 2-3 minutes.


Cook the noodles. At about the same time you put the cabbage in add the ramen noodles to the boiling water. Cook the noodles as advised on packaging (6 mins for Japanese thick noodles). Afterward drain and rinse under cold water for at least 30 seconds to stop the cooking process.


Flavor the meat. In a small bowl combine the Szechuan Paste, Sweet Soy Glaze, stock concentrate, and sugar. Then add to pan with meat; stirring until the beef mixture is thoroughly coated in sauce. Reduce heat to low.


Add the noodles. Add the noodles to the pan along with 1 tbsp butter. Stir to combine. Top with sesame seeds and serve!
