Ground Beef Ramen Ground Beef Teriyaki Ramen

We love easy weeknight meals and this skillet ramen is no exception. With just a few ingredients in your own homemade teriyaki sauce you’ll love how they coat the ramen and made the easiest and best noodle bowl ever.

Why use ground meat? I love making noodle bowls with ground beef because ground meat can be broken apart into pieces small enough that the sauce coating the noodles will also adhere the beef to the noodles.

Can you use another kind of meat?

YES, you can certainly swap ground beef out for ground chicken, pork, turkey or even crumbled extra firm tofu.

Can you use premade teriyaki sauce?

Yes, absolutely. I’d use caution in picking a high quality soy sauce, the lower the quality the tendency for it to be saltier than tastes good. And if you’re going to reduce the sauce at all it will only intensify the salty flavors. If you want a good pre-made option the one I reach for in a pinch is this one.

Beef Teriyaki Ramen

Where can you buy ramen?

Ramen noodles don’t need to be purchased from an Asian grocery store like authentic soba, lo mein or udon noodles. You can simply buy pre-made ramen packets and discard the seasoning packets which are full of salt and msg. Cook for just 2 minutes on a rapid boil before draining, the noodles can overcook easily.

Good Vegetables for Stir Fries:

  • Broccoli
  • Snow Peas
  • Carrots
  • Bok Choy
  • Water Chestnuts
  • Bamboo Shoots
  • Zucchini
  • Baby Corn
  • Onions
  • Bell Peppers

  • 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 packets ramen discard the seasoning packet
  • 8 ounces broccoli florets
  • sesame seeds optional

  • Add in the white wine, sugar, mirin and soy sauce.
  • Let reduce on medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until reduced by half the volume.

  1. This was awesome! Family thought so too!
    I really can’t do salt in a lot of my meals, the family could care less.
    I changed the recipe up a little….

    I used 3/8 cup of light soy sauce. Used 1/2 chicken broth and 1/2 water to cook my noodles.
    I sautéed onions and green peppers. Used steamed broccoli, celery, and carrots as well.

    The flavor was amazing! It was light and even the family didn’t add anymore seasoning.

    Thank you so much for this, I am using it again in the NEAR future!

  2. I reduced the amount of sugar by maybe 1/4 and it was still too sweet for my taste but did have a very good flavor. It was an easy, quick and good meal I will make again.

  3. made this for dinner tonight. Sooooo yummy!!!! thanks for the recipe!!!
    I added water chestnut and used ground ginger because the fresh stuff I had was no longer any good.
    My husband said he wants this meal to be added to our regular menu rotation.
    It’s such a quick and easy recipe I’m sure I will be making it again really soon. With alittle less sugar next time. It’s alittle sweet for me.

  4. Very tasty! Could not find the mirin so I was relegated to just using pre-made teriyaki sauce….which is fine because the recipe said you could use pre-made teriyaki. However, my problem was that I had absolutely no clue how much of the pre-made teriyaki sauce to put in. So I guessed and used a 12 oz bottle but then had to add a bit more of the low sodium soy sauce as I added the ramen and broccoli.

    I warned my son (14 and loves Asian food) that I wasn’t sure how it would taste because I couldn’t follow the recipe exactly. He loved it and I did too! So I guess I didn’t screw it up. I’m glad I like to cook and cook a lot so I felt comfortable making adjustments on the fly.

    It would be helpful if you provided info on how to make this with pre-made teriyaki sauce.

    Thanks! ?

  5. I only have soy sauce. Kikkoman. Should I add the brown sugar, ginger and garlic to make it more like teriyaki sauce? Per Google. You say up above for teriyaki sauce use higher grade soy sauce. But, I know there’s a slight difference. Lol! Hope this makes sense. 🙂

    1. I would use the 5 ingredient teriyaki chicken on this site and just make the sauce from it. It’s super quick.

      I realize this comment is very old, so I am so sorry for the delay in replying.

  6. Doubled the recipe for my four teens and we two adults … everyone loved it! Thank you 🙂

    I used teriyaki sauce – and I think next time I might add a little sugar – or do the sauce from scratch.

  7. As everyone said, this recipe is the BOMB! The guys ate the entire dish in no time flat – next time I’ll double it. I used Bragg’s Aminos and the millet brown rice ramen as the other cook suggested. Used 12 oz of broccoli, too. PERFECTO!
    Thank you so much. I really needed something new to add to our meal rotations!!!

  8. Delicious! Even my youngest two loved it…I probably should have doubled it…next time!

    I substituted coconut aminos for the light soy sauce and apple cider vinegar for the white wine and it turned out fantastic! Thanks for the great recipe!

  9. Holy $#$%)^* &@#$!!! I’m having trouble finding “family friendly” words to describe this genius meal. Suffice to say I am very satisfied– It’s really hitting the spot. Thank you!

  10. I made this tonight! I have tried other beef ramen recipes and so far, I think I like this one the best! Thank you for sharing! Definitely will make this again.

  11. Made this tonight. Super easy and looks pretty good. Can’t wait to try to with ground turkey or chicken.

    1. After browning the beef, how long are you supposed to reduce the premade terriaki sauce in the beef?

  12. Just made this tonight. Used organic millet and brown rice ramen noodles. Absolutely delicious. Great flavor for a super quick meal. Thank you.

    1. Yes but you’ll want to use a lot less ( about 1/4 teaspoon) considering it is stronger in flavor. Enjoy!

    1. Not a silly question at all. Just leave out everything except for the beef, ramen and broccoli. Enjoy!

  13. I made this even though I realized too late I didn’t have any wine and it was still delicious. Can I freeze leftovers? I live alone and would love to freeze some for later.

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, you can freeze this. I would recommend freezing them in smaller portions so you can just pull out whatever you need. Easy peasy!

  14. This has become one of our ‘go to’ dishes for the family. Actually, your entire site has become my ‘go to’! Your recipes are delicious, easy to follow, and practical for the typical household. It’s not often that I find a site like this… keep up the great work! 5 stars from us.

  15. I am not much for this kind of food but I must say so myself it was very amazing wow the flavor my whole family loved it even my granddaughter and my 2 yr old grandson thanks so much for sharing
