    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. Hearty ramen noodles are a Japanese comfort food staple perfect for pairing with umami-rich sauces like the combo of hoisin, soy sauce, sambal oelek, and more that we’re using in this dish. We’re topping it all with silky soft-boiled eggs and crunchy furikake for deliciously varied textures and flavors in every bite.

    • 2 Pasture-Raised Eggs
    • 10 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 3 Tbsps Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics
    • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp Mirin (Salted Cooking Wine)

    • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek

    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-size pieces. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice.

    Cook the eggs
    2 Cook the eggs

    Carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water and cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

    Make the sauce
    3 Make the sauce

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the vinegar, mirin, soy glaze, hoisin sauce, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    Cook the beef
    4 Cook the beef

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    Cook the vegetables
    5 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the chopped bok choy and sautéed aromatics; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until combined and the vegetables are softened.

    6 Cook the noodles

    To the pot of boiling water used to cook the eggs, add the noodles, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking.
