Ramen with Beef, Shiitakes and Spinach
The first recipe I cooked on my two week challenge was Ramen (not your cup of noddle type) with Beef, Shiitakes and Spinach. Evan is home for the weekend (doing a mountain of laundry) so she helped review the meal. Overall it was good but there are some pre-packaged Japanese ramen mixes that are just as good. I guess if you don't live in an area with a large Asian population it would be hard to find so this recipe would be the next closest thing. Sorry I can't give you the name of the store mix, it's in Japanese and I only know it by the packaging. I would have added more Shiitakes mushrooms and baby bok choy instead of the spinach. It's not a recipe I would try again.
