    Cook’s Tip:
    Broccoli florets are sold in packages in the produce section of some supermarkets or in supermarket salad bars. If the florets are too large, cut them into bite-size pieces.

    List of Ingredients

    1-1/4 pounds boneless beef top round or top sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
    2 packages (3 ounces each) Oriental-flavored instant ramen noodles, broken up
    1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 1/2 cup water
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/2 pound broccoli florets
    2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon grated orange rind (optional)


    1. Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8-inch thick strips. Combine seasoning from ramen noodles with cornstarch mixture in large bowl. Add beef; toss.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Stir-fry broccoli and carrots 1 minute. Add noodles and 1-1/2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender and most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove; keep warm.
    3. Heat remaining oil in same skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Drain beef, discarding marinade. Stir-fry 1/2 of beef 1 to 2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. (Do not overcook.) Remove. Repeat with remaining beef. Serve over noodles. Sprinkle with orange rind.
