Spicy Skillet Ramen

I found this gem in my box of unpublished recipes, it was from 2007. This recipe suggests a very interesting way to cook the ramen. I’d be curious to see a picture if anyone makes it.

  • 1 Packet Ramen (Any flavor or brand; I prefer Beef)
  • 2 Tbsp BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 2/3 cup Water
  • Generous Dash Lemon Pepper
  • Generous Dash Garlic Powder
  • Generous Dash Onion Powder
  • 1 red Onion; Diced

Set Ramen brick and diced onions aside and mix the remaining ingredients into a small pot. Add the ramen seasoning and stir contents of the pot until consistent. Soak ramen brick in the marinade until noodles are moist yet brick stays whole (depending on the size of the pot, you may have to flip the brick to marinate both sides). After marinated, sear pattie on stove top set to high in a small skillet, flipping each side as it begins to brown/burn (depending on preference). While the brick is searing, bring the left-over marinade to a high simmer in its pot. When the brick is done on both sides, pour simmering marinate onto the pattie still in the skillet (this will 'flash' boil the marinate and create a lot of steam so just be aware). This will boil off the remaining water and leave the ramen with a slightly sticky glaze. Sprinkle the diced onion over the ramen and enjoy!
