Why I Love These Spicy Peanut Ramen Noodles:

  • This recipe is so quick and easy! You only need a few ingredients and a few camp kitchen supplies to make a very impressive meal. It’s even a great dinner for busy weeknights at home.
  • It’s very filling. You won’t be hitting the tent hungry after this camping dinner!
  • I love peanut butter! The peanut sauce is the star of this meal, so make sure you get a jar you like. I buy the Sister’s Pantry brand from Whole Foods. It’s a little more expensive than other options, but the quality of the ingredients is much better and it tastes great!

Camp Kitchen Gear You’ll Need

  • Propane Camp Stove: This dinner is cooked over the propane camp stove. (I use the Everest stove by Camp Chef.) You’ll need two burners – one for boiling the ramen noodles and one for cooking the rest of the meal. Since you don’t need a campfire, this is a great camping meal for when there are fire restrictions.
  • Cast Iron Pan: You’ll want at least a 10-inch cast iron pan for this recipe to fit all the ramen noodles, beef, and veggies.
  • Large pot: For boiling the ramen noodles. Check out my review of popular campfire cooking kits if you need new camp cooking pots!
  • Large spoon or spatula: For mixing everything together!

Where to Buy Ramen Noodles

For this recipe, you’ll need 3 packets of ramen noodles. It can be hard to find just the ramen noodles, so I typically buy the ramen noodle packets and remove the seasoning packet.

But don’t throw the seasoning packets out! Save and use them in other recipes.

For example, I cook a lot of rice at home. For a quick flavor boost, I mix the seasoning packet into the water and cook the rice in that. Delicious and nothing goes to waste!

Servings: 4 people
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes



  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 ramen noodle packets*
  • 12 oz jar peanut sauce (spicy or mild)
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 large handful of snow peas


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Separate the seasoning packets from the ramen noodles. Set the packets aside. You won’t need them for this recipe.* Once the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook according to the packaging timing.
  • In the meantime, heat a cast iron pan over medium heat. Add the oil followed by the beef. Cook the beef until it’s no longer pink using a wooden spatula to break it apart and mix it as needed.
  • Once the beef is cooked, add in the broccoli and snow peas. Mix frequently until the vegetables are a vibrant green color, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Next, mix in the peanut sauce. You might not need the entire jar depending on how saucy you like it. Let the sauce cook for a minute or two mixing frequently and then turn off the heat.
  • When the noodles are done cooking, strain them and add them to the cast iron pan with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well to coat the noodles in sauce. Serve hot!


*I like to save the ramen seasoning packets and use them when I’m cooking rice at home for an easy flavor boost.
