MONGOLIAN MEATBALLS RAMEN RECIPE

From what I’ve been sharing lately, I’m sure you can tell I’ve been enjoying Asian flavors. My youngest son and I used to be hooked on Mexican flavors. We’ve moved on to Asian flavors and I hope you’re enjoying them as much as we are.

I formulated this sauce to be served with noodles. Therefore, the sauce is very rich on its own. Don’t fret, it’ll be perfect when combined with noodles or rice. 

The heat isn’t automatically in your face when you first start eating it. However, it hits a few seconds later. Although, I like the spiciness of the recipe as written if you don’t like much heat at all you may want to omit the sriracha and reduce the ginger.

Ingredients

For the meatballs

  • 1 pound 80/20 ground beef or turkey or chicken
  • 2 medium green onions finely chopped
  • 1 inch fresh ginger grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil for cooking meatballs

For the Mongolian sauce and noodles

  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon Sriracha
  • 3 teaspoons ginger grated
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup soy or tamari
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 cups broccoli florets fresh or frozen
  • 10 ounces ramen I used ½ of this pack
  • green onions garnish

Instructions

For the meatballs

  • Add the ground beef, green onions, ginger, garlic, and a pinch of pepper to a bowl. Mix until just combined. Coat your hands with a bit of oil, and roll the meat into tablespoon-size balls. (This will make 15- 18 meatballs)
  • Preheat a braiser pan or large skillet with a lid to medium-high. Once all your meatballs are portioned out and your dutch oven is heated, add about 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan.
  • Add 6-8 (depending on the size of your pan) meatballs in a single layer. Leave space between each meatball. Brown on one side for 2-3 minutes. Flip using tongs and brown on the opposite side for another 2-3 minutes.

For the sauce and noodles

  • While the meatballs are cooking, cook the pasta and broccoli according to the ramen package instructions. Do not salt the water. Drain.
  • To the pan with the meatballs, add the soy sauce, beef brothbrown sugarblack pepper, and hoisin sauce. Stir to combine.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and add it to the meatballs and sauce. Stir and bring the mixture to a low boil. After the sauce has thickened slightly add the drained noodles to the mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Allow the noodles to sit in the sauce for a few minutes to absorb flavor. Serve hot with a garnish of sliced green onions.
