- 1 pack Texas Beef Ramen (or regular beef, or asian – but Texas Beef is best)
- 1/2 to 3/4 can Coke (not diet)
- 1 pack salted peanuts
- 1 Beef stick (aka Slim Jim) –Optional–
Cook noodles. Use one of your work boots and the concrete floor of your cell to crush the peanuts inside the bag. Add about 2/3 of the peanuts and eat the rest while you’re “cooking”. Drain water from noodles, then add seasoning packet and coke. Add peanuts and optional sliced beef stick or summer sausage. Add more coke to achieve the right amount of sauce and balanced flavor.
