Favorite Ramen recipe

Postby Lily » Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:04 pm

Okay, anyone who went, or is in college, or is just on a tight budget has had Ramen noodles. I know there's a recipe on the package but I rarely made it as a soup.

I used to boil Ramen, add half a packet of spice, some Parmesan cheese (yes, the processed Kraft stuff--sorry), and sometimes hot sauce. Or I'd add a handful of frozen veggies with half a packet of seasoning, cubed tofu, and some butter. Or, if I was feeling particularly decadent I would boil up the noodles, add the spice, and some cheddar cheese. Okay, a lot of cheddar cheese.

Yeah. No where near the gourmet isle, but it was filling.

I was camping recently, and it was an easy, quick lunch with some apples and beer (no, not together).

I boiled some water and added it to the noodles with the full spice packet. Blam-- hot soupy noodle lunch.

Just as bland as I remember it, but hey, I was just looking for calories at that point.

This was my dorm ramen recipe:

Noodles from one package of ramen
1/2 of the spice package
1/4 - 1/2 pat of butter taken from dorm cafeteria

Boil water in hot pot and add noodles. Cook until tender but firm. Drain water. Add butter and spices to noodles is still warm hot pot.

Me and my roommate in college used to take the dried noodles, break them up, sprinkle the seasoning packet on and eat as a snack. It was surprisingly good, kinda like rice crackers. Don't know if I'd do that now.

I did find this a while back. Haven't tried any but the recipes look good.

The first issue of Lucky Peach has some really interesting suggested uses for instant ramen. I've been wanting to try the crusted skatewing recipe.

I recently found a recipe for stir fry steak salad using one package of Ramen noodle. Not as high carb as just eating the noodles and I added a few modifications you might like. This is a recipe that serves 4 people.

Stir Fry Steak Salad
One 3 oz package of roast beef flavor ramen noodles
4 cups water
1/4 head raw cauliflower, roughly cut into one inch pieces
1/2 cup fresh snow pea pods, tips and ends cut off
1 T Canola oil
4 oz mushrooms
1 lb boneless beef top loin steak, cut into thin strips
1 T sesame oil
Mixed fresh greens of your choice

Put water in large pan and bring to a boil. Add noodles, cauliflower and pea pods. Bring back to a boil, occasionally stir for about 5 minutes. Drain when everything is done and set aside.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add beef and mushrooms and cook about 8 minutes until browned. Stir in seasoning packet and noodle/veg mix. Drizzle the sesame oil over the entire mix.

Now, you can serve the above hot mix over lettuce or refrigerate and serve cold.

I love raw uncooked crunchy Ramen.
It plumps in your stomach!

But try this:
Ramen Noodle Pizza

1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, any flavor
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
mozzarella cheese, colby-jack, feta shredded
some chunks of dead animal if you want
black and/or green olives
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

1. Heat oven to broil.

2. Cook noodles according to package directions. Save seasoning to mix into tomorrow morning's coffee.
Drain noodles in colander.

3. Heat olive oil in large skillet with ovenproof handle. Add noodles and press to cover bottom of pan evenly. Cook 2 minutes or until browned underneath.

4. Spread sauce over noodles, then a layer of half the dead animals, then cheese, then remaining dead animals, then oregano.

5. Broil 2 minutes at 4-5 inches from heat or until top is bubbly and cheese starts to brown. Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting into wedges and serving.

So I'm a sissy. I prefer the noodles cooked, sans any dead animal as you say. Otherwise I luv your recipe Blunt. Welcome back to the Midwest.
