Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Cook the Pasta

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water. Strain pasta in a colander. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and cut white portions of green onions into 1" lengths. Cut green portions thinly. Cut broccoli into small bite-sized pieces. Mince garlic.

  • Step 3 - Brown the Beef

    Brown the Beef

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add ground beef to hot pan and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate. Ground beef will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Vegetables

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to sear ground beef to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil, broccoli and white portions of green onions to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned and crisp tender, 2-3 minutes. Add carrots and garlic and stir constantly until aromatic, 45-60 seconds.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Dish

    Finish the Dish

    Combine ponzu, cornstarch, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add ponzu-cornstarch mixture and reserved pasta water to pan with vegetables. Bring to a boil, return pasta and ground beef to pan, and stir occasionally until no pink remains in beef and sauce is thick enough to coat pasta, 2-3 minutes. Plate as pictured on front of card, garnishing with green portions of green onions and red pepper flakes (to taste). Bon appétit!
