Our family loves any type of noodle dish and this ground pork ramen is no exception!!  Not only is it a cinch to throw together, it’s packed with protein I feel good about serving my family.  (Did you know each 3 ounce serving of pork has over 20 grams of protein?!)

Not only is pork a great source of protein and several vitamins and minerals, it’s also very affordable and supports family farms in Utah and across the US.  So, grab some ground pork and whip up your new favorite dish! 🙂

Ingredients needed to make ground pork ramen on a white background.

Ingredients Needed

  • Ground Pork – You could also use thinly sliced pork tenderloin!  
  • Minced Ginger – You can mince your own or buy a tube of minced ginger.
  • Cold Water – You could use chicken broth instead, but make sure it’s a low-sodium chicken broth so the dish isn’t overly salty.
  • Stir Fry Vegetables – I like to use a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables for convenience and ease of prep!  These typically have a combination of several vegetables such as broccoli, sugar snap peas, red bell peppers, bok Choy, mushrooms, water chestnuts, etc.
  • Instant Ramen Noodles – Yes, like the stuff you bought in college, haha!  I use the pork flavor in this recipe.
  • Hoisin Sauce – This sauce adds lots of flavor and a touch of sweetness to the dish.  It also gives it a nice glazed appearance!
  • Soy Sauce – Can use miso paste or liquid aminos instead.
  • Garnishes – Green onions, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes, optional.

How to Make Ground Pork Ramen

Add the ground pork to a large nonstick skillet or sautĂ© pan over medium-high heat.  Use a wooden spoon to break the meat into smaller pieces and cook until the pink color is almost gone.

Then you’ll add the minced ginger and stir.  Continue cooking until the pork is done – ground pork is fully cooked when it’s no longer pink.  

Stir in two packets of the ramen seasoning mixture (I find that adding the third makes it too salty).  Spoon the ground pork mixture into a bowl and set aside.

Place the skillet back on the stovetop and add the water.  Once it’s reached a boil, add the vegetables and cook until tender.

Add the three packages of noodles and cook covered for 2 minutes or until the noodles are soft.

Stir in the ground pork, hoisin sauce and soy sauce to the cooked noodles and serve warm!

How to serve Ground Pork Ramen

This ground pork ramen recipe can be topped so many ways!  I love adding some sliced green onions for some freshness and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.  

If you want to turn these into spicy pork ramen, cook the ground pork in a tablespoon of chili oil and top with red pepper flakes and/or sriracha sauce!

How to store leftovers

Let the noodles cool a bit then transfer them to an airtight container.  Refrigerate for up to 5 days.  When you’re ready to enjoy them again, pop them in the microwave or reheat on the stovetop with a splash of water.

    Made this last winter. Was a big hit in my house! The flavors just meld together! And made it again for Cinco de Mayo dinner tonight with some fire roasted corn and sliced avocados. One comment was “You get your craving for pizza and tacos all rolled into one!” Thank you for this lovely, easy, flavorful recipe. Debbie
