6 oz instant Ramen noodles (two 3 oz packages, seasoning discarded)

1 lb broccoli (cut into 6 cups florets)

2 Tbsp olive oil (divided)

1 lb flank steak (or top sirloin, thinly sliced)

2 tsp sesame seeds (optional garnish)

2 Tbsp chives (optional garnish)

1 tsp fresh ginger (peeled and grated)

3 cloves garlic (grated, 2 tsp)

6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce

1/2 cup warm water

3 Tbsp light brown sugar (packed)

1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch

2 Tbsp sesame oil

1/4 tsp black pepper


Start by cooking ramen so it is ready when you need it. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add ramen noodles and cook 3 minutes, breaking them up with a spatula. Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside.

In a large measuring cup or bowl, combine all sauce ingredients and stir to dissolve the sugar.

Place a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Once skillet is hot, add 1 Tbsp oil, 6 cups broccoli and 2 Tbsp water. Cover with lid and sauté for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until crisp tender. Transfer broccoli to a separate dish.

Increase to medium high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. Add beef in a single layer and sauté 2 minutes per side or just until cooked through then reduce heat to medium low.

Re-stir the sauce if it has separated and add to the pan and simmer 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. It will thicken. Return broccoli to the pan along with the cooked noodles and stir or toss to combine and coat the noodles in sauce. Add 1 to 2 Tbsp water to the sauce to thin if desired. Serve garnished with sesame seeds and chives.
