  • ¼ cup sesame or olive oil (or a mix of both) 
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ⅓ cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp lemongrass paste (optional) 
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, thinly sliced 
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 8 oz shiitake mushrooms, or your favorite variety, sliced 
  • Chili flakes to taste (optional for heat)
  • ½ cup fresh Thai or regular basil, chopped 
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 squares ramen noodles or 6 oz of rice noodles
  • ⅓ cup tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tsp honey or brown sugar 


For serving:

  • Radish microgreens, or your favorite variety 
  • Additional green onion slices and herbs 
  • Sriracha 
  • Peanuts or cashews, roughly chopped 




  1. In a skillet, saute the green onions in the oil over medium heat until fragrant, 3-5 minutes. Lower the heat, stir in the butter, red curry paste, lemongrass paste, garlic, shallots, and chili flakes. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the beef to the pan and brown all over for about 5 minutes, breaking up the meat as it cooks. Add in a few splashes of tamari, the rice wine vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey. Let the beef caramelize for 2 minutes longer. Mix in the egg and vegetables & toss to combine. Cook until the veggies are still a bit firm, but tender.
  3. Cook the noodles according to package directions, then drain and toss with the beef mix and 1/3 cup of tamari. Let everything cook together for 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  4. Serve the noodles in bowls and garnish with extra green onions, herbs and microgreens. Sprinkle on some peanuts for extra flavor and crunch!
