I use them for stir fry. They work great with veggies and your choice of meat. I cook them ahead and then add them once things are steaming/cooking in the skillet. They are also good for if you suddenly run out of spaghetti once the sauce is done!
Beef Lo Mein
Brown half a pound of hamburger with one chopped onion in a large skillet. Drain grease. When done, add 2 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Crumble in 2 packages beef ramen and seasoning packets, 2 cups broccoli pieces, and 1 cup shredded carrot. Cover and simmer 3 minutes. Uncover and cook til liquid is mostly cooked off.
This is really quick and easy, and I have also used chicken or pork to change it up. Plus you can use whatever other veggies you have on hand. It's good for nights when my boys ask for Chinese and I don't want to spend $30 on take-out!
Instant noodles is what we commonly get during this pandemic aside from canned goods. Food is scarce at this very moment and I have to innovate so that we can have something to eat until another quarantine day ends.
We're craving for pizza. But as of this moment I'm really out of budget since I have bought all necessary goods for the lockdown. I don't wanna go out either so here's another kitchen innovation for the hungry home buddies.
