Ramen Skillet Dinner

This is fast, easy, and with the exception of the stir-fry sauce, I usually have all the ingredients. Start keeping stir-fry sauce on your always-have condiments list and this is a sure thing!

1 lb ground beef
2 1/2 c. water
2 packages Ramen noodles (one needs to be oriental flavor, although I've used beef and liked the result just fine)
1/2 c. stir-fry sauce
3 cups frozen veggies (I usually use broccoli, carrots & cauliflower mix)

In a large skillet, brown ground beef; drain. Add water, the oriental seasoning packet (note: you only use one seasoning packet, so it doesn't matter what the other one is), stir-fry sauce and frozen vegetables; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover & cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Break up Ramen noodles; add to skillet. Cover; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until sauce is of desired consistency, stirring occasionally and separating noodles as they soften.

Yield 4 (1 1/2 cup) servings (although we always have leftovers and they're so yummy)
