This was easy and delicious!

I added a package of sliced fresh mushrooms along with the broccoli. I used 2 pinches of red pepper flakes - coulda used more.

Bump for SilverSage. I loved this! In fact, I think I'll make it again soon.

Kathy, I don't recall this being too salty, but I'm a salt fan. If you use low sodium soy sauce and low sodium chicken broth, you might even have to ADD salt! :giggle:

I did just make this again, but subbed stringless snap peas (WHAT a great variety they are!) for the broccoli because Dad doesn't like broccili. Got a
1 lb. sirloin steak on sale.

Fantastic meal!

I got stuff to make this but ended up getting frozen edemame because I didn't want to use broccoli and Winn Dixie didn't have any snow pea pods which I was going to substitute and I didn't want to go to Publix for just 1 thing. Was going to use rib eye since that was on sale but the New York strips were way better marbled and were also on sale so bought a package with a couple of small steaks.

Karen, the edamame is shelled, I gather? Love that idea!

I'll never buy low sodium soy sauce again! I had to add salt on mine at the table!

Haven't opened the package yet so don't know if it's shelled or not but I will if it's not. I hope it is though.

I just had edemame for the first time recently and really liked it. Craig's never had it and is leary of it because they kind of look like lima beans which he hates.

Finally made it. I would use a little less soy sauce, and I used light, and wouldn't salt the ramen water as it was just a tiny bit salty for me, but otherwise we really liked it. Oh, I usedx2 hefty pinches of red pepper flakes and really didn't notice any heat.

Looks great, Karen! How many packs of ramen did you use?

Have you ever had edamame in their pods? That's my favorite way to have it, as a side dish. You steam them, salt and butter them, and eat them as you would artichoke leaves - draw each pod through the teeth, popping the beans into your mouth and discarding the pod.

No, this is only second time I've had them as just pods.
