  • 12 oz frozen Homestyle Meatballs, about 25 meatballs
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1.5 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp cornstarch + 2 tsp water
  • 1 cup carrot spirals
  • 2 tbsp green onion, chopped
  • 2 3 oz Ramen Noodle packages (discard seasoning packets)


  • In a medium saucepan, mix all soy sauce, beef broth, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes.  
  • Add frozen meatballs and cook as directed on the package, usually about 20 minutes. (I like to use a pan big enough for the meatballs to be in a single layer, but small enough they are still touching on the sides.)
  • Once the meatballs are fully cooked and heated through, mix the cornstarch with water and stir into the sauce. Simmer 2 more minutes.
  • Boil water and cook Ramen noodles with the carrots for 2 minutes; drain and discard cooking water.
  • Add the cooked noodles and carrots to the meatballs/sauce.  Toss until all the noodles and vegetables are coated in sauce. 
  • Sprinkle with the green onions and more red pepper flakes.
