Cooking With Kids

Wiggly Noodle Stir Fry is a quick, simple and inexpensive meal that is versatile enough to customize for each family's preference. Using your choice of meat and veggies, plus a package of instant noodle soup (ie. Mr. Noodle, Ramen, etc.), you can feed your whole family for under $10.

Instead of ground beef, you can also use one steak or one chicken breast per 2 people, cut into strips

  • Instant Noodle Soup package(s), 1 pkg per 2 people
  • Ground Beef, 1/2 lb per 2 people
  • Red or Green Onions
