Total Time: 2 hours
- 1 1/2 pound boneless beef shoulder steak, cut 1 inch thick
- 2 tsp canola oil
- 3 cup water
- 2 package beef flavored ramen noodles, broken into pieces
- 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 4 cup broccoli florets
Shoulder steaks (also known as charcoal steaks) need a little extra oomph to tenderize them. Slow braising is perfect, but you can also have them tenderized at Fareway's meat counter.
- Heat oil in a pot over medium heat.
- Place beef in pot; brown on all sides.
- Pour off drippings and season with salt and pepper, as desired.
- Add 1 cup water, seasoning packets from ramen noodles and ginger.
- Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover tightly and simmer for about 1 ½ hours, or until beef is fork tender.
- Remove steaks and keep warm.
- Add remaining 2 cups of water, broccoli and noodles to the pot; bring to a boil.
- Cook, uncovered, 4 to 6 minutes, or until broccoli is crisp-tender and noodles are tender.
- Carve steaks into thin slices and return to pot.
