You can freeze this recipe! Just prepare your meat veggies and allow them to cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove when ready to eat. Cooked ramen noodles don't freeze well so cook them when you're ready to serve your stir fry.
