These Ground Beef Ramen is made with ramen, ground beef, soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha, jalapeños, lime juice, and cilantro.
These Ground Beef Spicy Ramen are the real deal and only takes 20 minutes to make. They run on the spicy side since I added sriracha, which you can omit. You can definitely control how much sriracha you would like to put in it so it doesn’t have to be super spicy. There are many variations to Ground Beef Spicy Ramen and this is my favorite!
What you will need
- Soy Sauce: If you don’t have you can use coconut or liquid aminos.
- Sesame oil: This can be found in the ethnic food section of your local grocery store.
- Rice Vinegar: If you can’t find rice vinegar, you can use apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar.
- Hoisin Sauce: You can use a premade garlic teriyaki or bean paste.
- Honey: A good substitute for honey is maple syrup or brown sugar. You can use equal parts.
- Sriracha: Sriracha is generically the most common Asian hot sauce you can find. If you cannot find this, Gochujang, chili garlic sauce, and sambal oelek works just as well!
