Vern's Delight (20-minute One-pot Meal)

Introduction: Vern's Delight (20-minute One-pot Meal)

I'm always looking for recipes that require minimum preparation, and which I can whip up quickly with ingredients I already have at hand. As a plus, I like meals that require minimum cleanup!

This one day I came home late after work, and I had to come up with a meal to feed my 2 kids, husband, mother-in-law, and myself. It turned out so good that I decided to write down exactly how I did it. My mother-in-law named the dish after herself, she liked it so much! :) Over the years, this has become a family favorite. It's fast, easy, inexpensive, and so good! What's not to like?

Step 1: Ingredients

The ingredients listed first are what I use, and allow me to have this meal done in a little over 15 minutes. You can use the optional ingredients, but allow time for chopping, mincing, etc.

Step 2: Directions

  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef, garlic, and onion over medium-high heat.
  2. Add consomme, tomato/peppers, vegetables, and the seasoning packets from the ramen. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, break up the ramen noodles.
  4. Add the noodles and mix well. Cover and continue simmering over medium-low heat for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Step 3: Notes

Makes 6 servings of only about 350 calories each!

Preparation and cooking times combined are less than 20 minutes.
