Is ramen noodles healthy?

I’m one of those “foodies” that like easy instant ramen noodles. The cheap stuff. You know, add a cup of water and microwave for 2 minutes. Even better if it’s the “just add water and wait a minute” type.

Isn’t it just terrible when you love something that’s bad for you :/

Because yes. Ramen is not healthy.

But, the whole point of Living Chirpy is taking our favorites and transforming them into healthier and low carb-ier versions – and our Chirpy-fied Beef Ramen recipe definitely falls into the “hell-yes-this-is-amazing-let’s-eat-it-again-asap” pile.

How to make healthy beef ramen?

The best part about our Ramen, which is the best part about most of the recipes we share on Chirpy, is the fact that it’s basically a one pot wonder. That’s if you don’t count the quick searing of the beef and the boiling of the egg. But it’s so quick it doesn’t even count. Promise.

While the beef sears, everything else heats up in a pot next to it. Once the veggies are cooked to your desired level, dump in the beef and serve it up immediately.

Whether you’re talking Korean or Japanese or Mongolian Ramen, it doesn’t matter. It’s all amazing and addictive and this recipe hits the spot every time.

    • Hi Patty 🙂 Unfortunately I unable to provide nutritional information on my recipes as I am not a registered dietitian/nutritionist. There are lots of website you’ll be able to find with through a google search that allows you to enter a recipe and then gives you an estimate of the calories.

  1. Hi there, the recipe is great, thanks for showing how to use zoodles in a soup. I’d like to point out that mirin is spelt with 1 R. Also “oriental” is not a good look, you can easily change that to Asian section of the grocery store.

    • The recipe looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

      Just wanted to confirm that “oriental” is no longer considered an appropriate term to use for Asian culture. It is better to use the term “Asian section of the grocery store” instead.

  2. I really want to make this recipe. I am not sure what makes the broth. How much beef broth do you use and what are the ingerdients that make up the broth?

    • Hi Kristin,
      If you look carefully at the recipe card, I separated the ingredients that make up the broth 🙂
      It’s:
      BROTH
      6 cups • water
      1/2 cup • soy sauce
      3 tbsp • mirrin (found in the oriental section of your grocery store)
      2 tbsp • rice vinegar
      2 cloves • garlic (minced)
      1/4 tsp • ginger (minced)

      You can also add a bit of Sake and of course Sriracha or your hot sauce of choice!

  3. Sooooo sooo good. Wish I had done the steak a little different to make it more tender. I’m such a noodle fanatic- and this hit the spot!
