  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound ground beef, chicken, or pork 
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or grated (or 2 teaspoons garlic powder)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated (or 2 teaspoons dried ginger)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Ramen (3 squares)
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup fresh basil or cilantro, roughly torn
  • carrots, green onions, and limes, for serving

1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

2. Add the shallots and cook until the shallots begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Stir in the beef, garlic, and spices. Brown all over, breaking the beef up as it cooks, about 5 minutes. Pour in the soy sauce, vinegar, and honey. Bring the sauce to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until the sauce coats the beef, about 5-8 minutes.

3.  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, spinach, and basil, tossing to combine. Serve with toppings
