  • 1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the shallots and cook until the shallots begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, if using, and pepper. Brown all over, breaking the beef up as it cooks, about 5 minutes. Pour in the soy sauce, vinegar, fish sauce, honey, and chili paste. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the sauce coats the beef, about 5-8 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Boil the ramen according to package directions, until al dente. Before you drain the noodles scoop out about 1/2 cup cooking water, drain.
    3. Add the noodles and 1/4 cup of the reserved water to the beef. Add the butter and basil, tossing to combine.
    4. Divide the noodles between plates. Top with peanuts (or sesame seeds), carrots, green onions, and fresh limes. Enjoy!


To Make Vegetarian: Instead of using 1 pound of meat, use 3 cups of finely chopped mushrooms (can be any variety or a mix of varieties) plus 1 cup of finely chopped cauliflower (or use an additional cup of mushrooms). Sauté the vegetables as directed to do so for the meat. The cooking times should be very similar, if not the same.
