Sautéed vegetables, savory ground beef, and a fried egg are served over rice ramen, and mixed together creating a gloriously tasty gluten-free ramen bowl! Make this meal in just 25 minutes!
Lunch, dinner, basically any time a meal-sized hunger pang hits. We all need an easy back-pocket meal that flies together with minimal effort while still scoring high on the tastiness scale.
Right now I am living my best bowl food life on repeat with this gluten-free and oh so very Simple Beef Ramen Bowl recipe. Think savory ground beef and sautéed zucchini, shiitake mushrooms, and shallots. Rainbow carrots peeled into thin, crunchy ribbons. A fried egg with a saucy yolk is a must -> ALWAYS. And serve over ramen.
You with me on this one?
It's a bowl of umami magic.
I recently visited a ramen restaurant who says they strive to make the best ramen in all of Portlandia. Awesome, count me in. Chopsticks ready.
My visit lasted 20 seconds.
No ramen for you they said with nose upturned, a scowl on their face, and a deep exhale of irritability. Apparently asking for gluten-free ramen was considered offensive. Or at least at this one little corner of Portland. Portland is actually a mecca for gluten
They also didn't get the addendum to the memo that the majority of us who are gluten intolerant didn't willingly choose that path of foodie life. We succumbed to our gluten-free lifestyles kicking and screaming while all the tasty bread, pizza, pasta, baked goods, AND ramen were stripped from our hands. So LISTEN UP ramen restaurant, you can save your snark for someone else. I'm taking ramen into my own hands.
Let's hop on the gluten-free ramen train friends. Organic millet and brown rice ramen is in town. And it's darn tasty.
Thankfully there are companies (and more are regularly joining the ranks) who have the gluten-free-ers in mind. Lotus Foods is one of them. (This is not a sponsored post btw, just my affections pouring out). Lotus Foods has my back when I'm craving a bowl of soul comforting gluten
Let's quickly break down why Lotus Foods' organic millet and brown rice ramen is my go-to for a tasty bowl of bibimbap. It's:
- Gluten free (an important criteria obviously)
- Nutritious (no wheat belly here)
- Easily digestible (yes please)
- Good source of fiber and protein (definitely a bonus)
- Tasty, tasty, tasty (I'm sold)
- Bonus: You can find their ramen on shelves at Costco (Family-sized package of ramen at a great price = winning)
This is a perfect weeknight meal when you want something soul comforting and hearty on the table fast. I also love making it for lunch when I want something that's quick and easy, filling, and full of flavor. It's a pan to plate meal in less than 30 minutes! This rice ramen bowl has definitely become one of my meal planning go-to's.
Let's break it down.
Sauté some veggies. I used zucchini, shiitake mushrooms, and shallots but you could really use any veggies you have on hand. I also peeled rainbow carrots into thin ribbons and left them raw for a little extra crunch of sweetness but you could quickly sauté them as well if you prefer.
Brown the ground beef in the same pan used to sauté the veggies. Then add the sauce.
Let's pause here and talk about THE SAUCE.
The sauce is what brings this simple ramen bowl together. Sesame oil, garlic, sweet red chili sauce, ginger, and liquid aminos (tamari would also work) take this bowl food to a lunch or dinner time craving on repeat. It delivers
Serve the veggies and the savory ground beef over a steaming bowl of ramen along with a slurpy yolked fried egg on top! Then mix it all up so the umami magic can work its flavors throughout the whole bowl. And that's it!
And how did the ramen restaurant visit end?
I went to the restaurant next door.
They serve gluten
Maybe it's time to hop on that gluten-free ramen train.
