Ingredients

1 pound of ground beef
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
3 green onions, thinly sliced and divided
1 egg
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
red pepper flakes, to taste
kosher salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
vegetable oil, to taste
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth, low sodium
1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons hoisin
3 (3-ounce) packs of instant ramen, seasoning packets discarded
sesame seeds, optional, to taste, for garnish

Directions

Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, panko bread crumbs, 1/2 of the green onions, the egg, garlic, and 1 teaspoon of sesame oil.

Step 2

Season the meat mixture with the red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, and mix until well combined.

Step 3

Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the meat mixture and roll it into a meatball. Repeat this step until all of the meat mixture has been used.

Step 4

In a large skillet over medium heat, warm a thin layer of vegetable oil.

Step 5

Add the meatballs to the skillet and sear until each side develops a crust, about 2 minutes per side.

Step 6

Transfer the meatballs from the skillet.

Step 7

Add the remaining sesame oil to the skillet and stir in the ginger until fragrant, about 20 seconds.

Step 8

Add the chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, and hoisin to the oil mixture. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.

Step 9

Return the meatballs to the skillet and cover with a lid. Cook until they are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Step 10

While the meatballs are cooking, cook the ramen according to the package instructions in a large pot of boiling water. Drain the noodles.

Step 11

Add the cooked noodles to the skillet and toss until fully coated in the sauce.

Step 12

Garnish with the remaining onion and sesame seeds.

Step 13

Serve warm.
