  • 1 package of Beef Ramen
  • Ground beef (about half the size of the Noodles)
  • 4 Tbsp. Barbecue sauce
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare ramen as you usually would, but drain most of the water out, leaving just enough to stir in with the seasoning packet. Brown ground beef in a separate pan, drain the pan of grease, saving some for the ramen. Toss the browned ground beef into the ramen (two forks helps with this). Mix in the Barbecue sauce and Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Ghetto Yee Min Ramen

  • 4oz beef
  • 1 package ramen
  • vegetables (broccoli, snow peas, etc)
  • Chinese vegetables (bok choy, Chinese broccoli, etc)
  • oyster sauce
  • soy sauce
  • sugar
  • corn starch
  • onion

Note: Recipe is hazy, amounts differ depending on personal taste

There’s a Chinese dish, involving gravy over pan-fried Chinese egg noodles (which are functionally the same as ramen noodles.) I reproduced it on a minor level as follows:

Cook 4 oz of beef of your choice, frying preferable. (I used hamburger, for extra ghettoness, and used a little of the drippings - gravy, whether Chinese or otherwise, needs a little fat.)

Boil the ramen according to directions, toss out the sauce packet. Drain, and set aside.

Boil vegetables such as broccoli, or snow peas if desired. Make sure to cook them through, as you fold them in at the very end.

Put 1 1/2 cups or so of water in a saucepan, and add 1 tsp of beef base. (NOT bouillon, or ramen seasoning.) Bring to a boil. Add beef. Add about 3 tbsp of oyster sauce, and like 1 tbsp of soy sauce, and taste it. If it's not salty enough, add oyster sauce and soy sauce in similar proportions until it is. Add a little sugar if desired (The Chinese yee mein recipes seem to usually call for just a little.) Add a few drops of sesame oil. Make a slurry of 1 tbsp of cornstarch, and as little water as possible, and stir rapidly into the boiling liquid. If it's not thick enough, use your judgment and make it so. Taste it again, it may or may not be salty enough. If so, repeat the soy/oyster sauce step until it is. Fry up a little onion, to your taste, and add the ramen, frying the noodles until the surface of them dries and they sizzle. Immediately transfer the gravy/sauce to the noodle mixture, and proceed to fold in whatever vegetables you like. For me this is one serving, but your mileage may vary. If you're feeling adventurous, use Chinese broccoli or bok choy. (Significantly more authentic.)

This recipe is not for anyone with high blood pressure or otherwise on a low-sodium or low-fat diet.

Bonus points to this simple recipe for using lots of processed ingredients. Also, I don’t like horseradish, but if you do, this sounds good.

Agbasp Approved Ramen

Agbasp writes in from the Great White North with this “approved” recipe that he discovered when he was starving, although, if you have diced steak, you ain’t really stavin’.

  • Maruchan Pork Ramen
  • Diced Steak (pre-cooked)
  • Shredded Chedder
  • Diced Hot Dogs

Crumble up the Ramen noodles and pour into a bowl with 2 cups of water. Add the diced hotdogs and set in the microwave for 7 minutes. During that time the water will boil the noodles and the hotdog slices. When it is done, drain it leaving just a tad bit of water. Next, add the Cheddar, Diced Steak, Flavor packet, and what ever else you like. Stir, and after it cools, enjoy.

Sweet and Spicy Coke Ramen

CactusV writes: Here’s a recipe I learned in prison; it’s for a generic asian-style teriyakiesque dish we referred to simply as “Chinese Food”. A more interesting/catchy name is “Sweet & Spicy Coke Ramen”.


  • 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.

  • 1 Package of ramen in mushroom flavor
  • 1/2 to 1 cup raw hamburger, or cooked crumbled hamburger, or mince up left over roast or sandwich cut.
  • sour cream
  • black pepper or hot sauce

Add water in pan and mix in some raw hamburger broken up well. (If meat is pre-cooked, you may add it later). Bring to boil (hamburger will be almost cooked by now) and add noodles - I like them unbroken - and cook as you like till done (hamburger will be done by now too). If using pre-cooked meat add now. Add seasoning packet and stir well. Drain off all broth and add a good heaping tablespoon (or more if you like) sour cream and toss well. Sprinkle on some black pepper or hot sauce if you like a bite to your food. Commence conspicuous consumption.
