Ramen Stir Fry

This recipe is very simple and delicious!

1 pound beef boneless sirloin, cut into strips  (you can also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cups water
2 packages Oriental flavor Ramen noodle soup mix
1 package (16 oz) frozen stir fry vegetables (also called Oriental blend) (you can also make your own with fresh vegetables, if you like)
1/3 cup stir fry sauce

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat.  Cook beef in the oil for about 5 minutes, stirring until brown.  Remove beef from skillet and keep warm.
In the skillet, heat the water until boiling.  Break up noodles into the water (I like to leave mine still pretty big).  Stir until slightly softened (about 1-2 minutes).  Stir in the vegetables.
Heat to boiling again.  Boil for 5-7 minutes, until vegetables are cooked.  Stir in the contents of seasoning packets from ramen noodles, stir fry sauce, and beef.  Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until hot.

My review:  I'm not a huge fan of stir fry, but I loved this.  I'm a sucker for Ramen noodles.  This was such a quick yummy dinner that was easy to prepare.
