Ground Beef & Noodles

There are so many ways you can put these two versatile things together to make for a delicious dish. Well here is another variation that I’m sure you will love.

You will need:
1 pound lean ground beef
4 teaspoons ginger minced
6 cloves garlic minced
1/ 2 cup brown sugar
1/ 2cup beef broth
1/ 2 cup soy sauce low sodium
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce or Oyster Sauce
1/ 2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/ 2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
10 ounces noodles linguine, fettuccine, or spaghetti
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
4 medium green onions (chives) sliced


In a large skillet, with high sides, brown the ground beef on the stovetop. Add the ginger and garlic the last 2 minutes of browning the ground beef. Break up the meat as it cooks. While the ground beef is cooking, cook the pasta according to the package instructions. (Do not salt the water.) Drain. Drain the ground beef and return it to the skillet along with the soy sauce, beef broth, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, pepper, and hoisin sauce. Stir to combine. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and add it to the ground beef mixture. Stir and bring the mixture to a low boil. After the sauce has thickened slightly add the drained noodles to the beef mixture. Stir to combine. Allow the noodles to sit in the sauce a few minutes to absorb flavour. Serve hot with a garnish of sliced green onions.
