Ramen Noodle Stir Fry
This dish is so great because it's different every time you fix it... beef, chicken, spicy, mild, different veggie mixes, the variations are endless.

1 pkg. Ramen noodles
Inexpensive cut of meat to match Ramen flavor; for "beef" use cube steak, breakfast steak, etc.--whatever is on sale. Or go vegetarian, extra firm tofu, cubed and seasoned is great too.
Your choice of spices.
Thinly slice or chop your choice of meat. Heat small amount of oil in wok or large pan. Add meat and brown quickly. In another pot, boil noodles about 2 minutes. Remove meat and let sit on paper towel lined plate to remove excess grease. Add veggies, Ramon flavor pack, any other seasoning (soy sauce, Chinese five spice, curry, red pepper flakes... use your imagine or gear toward family favorites). Add a splash of liquid (water, white wine, orange juice, etc...), stir constantly. Add noodles and meat to warm through and mix flavors.
If you prefer a more "saucy" dish, thicken chicken or beef broth with cornstarch and add to the veggies and beef. Leave noodles out and serve the mixture ON TOP of plain noodles for best results.
Cheap, Fast, Variety.
