If you were anything like me as a kid, teenager or college student, you could have probably lived off ramen with no problem. I had a very specific process when I made my ramen. I would crush the noodles up while they were still in the packaging, boil the noodles, drain them completely, add the crazy high in sodium seasoning packet and exactly 2 cubes of ice so that I could dig in immediately without 3rd degree burns. A few things may have changed over the years as far as my pallet goes, but I will never be one to turn down some flavorful noodles! This Easy Spicy Chicken Ramen is flavorful, has a little heat and is loaded with fresh and delicious ingredients. The best news is that is only takes about 15 minutes to prepare!
Everyone, myself included, loves a great taco. I am always open to making and trying different types of tacos. The other day, I was having an internal struggle because I really wanted some tacos, but I was also craving some super flavorful Korean beef. I decided to marry the two things and make something delicious that I am wondering why I never did this before. These Korean Beef Tacos are incredibly quick and easy to make and they have a delicious sriracha lime mayo drizzled on top. I like to top mine with some fresh cilantro and red onion and also some crisp kimchi for an extra kick of flavor.
Almost always, here in America, you will find an Asian dish served with either rice or noodles. While I love both rice and noodles, I like to mix things up. I decided to take one of the other more popular starches and add a little Asian flair to it. These Crispy Roasted Asian Potatoes are seasoned just perfectly to give you all the flavor you could want and also a nice kick of spice. Serve these potatoes just about any meat for a unique and delicious meal that is sure to add a little excitement to your dinner rotation.
Pork chops are a food that I probably underutilize. There is really so much that can be done with them, but I tend to forget about them and go straight for the chicken. These Baked Asian Marinated Pork Chops may just be a game changer for me! They are so easy to make, don’t need long to marinate, can be made as spicy or mild as you like and the marinade is packed with so much flavor that you will for sure want seconds! Serve these with some fresh veggies, rice, noodles or any of your other favorite sides!
Do you ever have those nights when you want something quick and easy, but you also want something delicious and packed with flavor? I have the solution! My Damn Good Noodles can be ready in 15 minutes and they are oh so satisfying. Feel free to enjoy these noodles alone as a main dish (that’s what we do!), have them as a side dish or even add some chicken or shrimp to make it a more substantial meal.
These Vietnamese Beef Bowls are a great quick, easy and healthy option for weeknight dinners. The saucy and flavorful ground beef is served over my habanero lime rice. Hoisin sauce gives this dish just the hint of sweetness that it needs, and the chili paste gives it just enough spice. All in, these rice bowls come in at less than 500 calories, so they are a delicious meal that you shouldn’t feel guilty about enjoying!
I feel like one of the most important things to find when you move to a new area is great Asian food of all types. It is just one of those things that when the craving hits, you need that great little restaurant to head to. Well, we recently moved to a new area, and we have not found that spot yet. So, I had to improvise. Let me tell you – this sweet chili chicken and noodle stir fry did not disappoint!
