Quick curried beef khow suey with fresh ramen noodles
Family-Friendly, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free
A lightly spiced coconut-curry broth comes together with toothsome ramen noodles and cooked ground beef in a comforting Burmese-inspired soup.
In your bag
- 6 ounces fresh ramen noodles
- 1 organic red onion
- 3 organic scallions
- 10 ounces ground beef
- 1 organic lime
- Sun Basket khao soi curry paste (curry powder - dried New Mexican chiles - fresh ginger - fresh garlic - ground turmeric)
- 1 tablespoon chickpea flour
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (optional)
If you have leftover broth, refrigerate it and serve over hard- or soft-cooked eggs for a tasty snack.
Make It Ahead
The khow suey can be prepared up to 1 day ahead (Steps 2, 3, and 4, minus prepping the lime). Let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, gently rewarm the khow suey, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water to thin the broth if needed, as you cook the ramen (Step 1) and prep the lime.
Chickpea flour really is the jack-of-all-trades. The flour absorbs liquid without clumping, so it creates a creamy, roux-like consistency, making it an excellent thickener for soups and sauces. For the same reason, it can be used as a vegan “cheese” substitute, replicating the velvety, dairy-like mouthfeel. Because it mimics the structural support of gluten when it’s hydrated, it is great in a gluten-free flour mix for baking. Chickpea flour also has a binding power similar to that of eggs, so we sometimes use it when making vegan fritters and “meatballs.”
