Mongolian Meatball Ramen

1 lb. ground beef

1 lb. Italian sausage mild

1/2 c. Panko bread crumbs

3 green onions, thinly sliced, divided

2 egg

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. sesame oil, divided

red pepper flakes

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Vegetable oil, for skillet

4 tsp. minced ginger

1 c. low sodium chicken broth

1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce

1/4 c. brown sugar

2 tbsp. Hoisin

3 tbsp. Sweet Red Chili Sauce

3 packs instant ramen

Sesame seeds, for garnish



  • In a large bowl, combine ground beef and sausage, panko bread crumbs, about half green onions, egg, garlic, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Season with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, then mix until well combined. To form meatballs, scoop a heaping tablespoon of mixture and roll into balls.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat a thin layer of vegetable oil. Add meatballs and sear until each side develops a crust, about 2 minutes per side.
  • Remove meatballs from the skillet, and add remaining sesame oil. Stir in ginger and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sweet red chili, and hoisin. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Return meatballs to skillet and cover skillet with a lid. Cook until meatballs are cooked through, about 10 minutes more.
  • Meanwhile, cook ramen. In a large pot of boiling water, cook ramen according to package instructions. Drain noodles.
  • Add cooked noodles to the skillet and toss until fully coated in sauce. Garnish with remaining green onion and sesame seeds. Serve warm.
