Spicy Sausage Ramen Toss

This recipe sounds awesome. For anyone who likes chorizo, it might be good in this dish. Personally, I don’t like chorizo, but I know lots of people who do. Also did you know that the dictionary in Firefox doesn’t think that chorizo is a word? It is recommending chorister, now there’s a word you use everday!

    Ingredients

  • 2 packages of Ramen Chicken (or Chili) Flavor
  • 1/4 cup (half medium onion) of onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup of green peppers, sliced or diced
  • 1/2 cup of green peas
  • 2-3 links (appx 1 pound) of cooked and sliced sweet (or hot) Italian sausage
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (fresh preferable)
  • 1 can of Ro*Tel Original diced tomatoes with green chili peppers.

Cook the sausage (Grilled Wegman’s Sweet Italian tastes great!), slice after cooking and set aside.
Cut and saute onion and garlic in a pan. Pour the liquid only from the Ro*Tel diced tomatoes into a pot, and add 2.5 cups of water and flavor packets. Boil the water. Place noodles in pot with onion, garlic, peas, peppers. Cook until noodles are soft. Transfer to serving bowl, add diced tomatoes and sausage – TOSS!
Voila…Just hot enough to maybe make you sweat. Substitute regular diced tomatoes for a less spicy rendition.

Bacon Fried Ramen

Bacon makes everything better and this detailed recipe is no exception.

Submitted By: Kevin

Submitted From: Suffolk, VA

    Ingredients

  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 2 packages Ramen (no specific flavor)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Soy Sauce
  • 1 large egg

Requires the following implements: spatula/turner, non-stick pan, medium-sized pot, Large bowl filled with water and ice, strainer or colander

Before beginning the recipe, fill large bowl with cold water. Toss a lot of ice into the bowl. We want the water to cool quickly.

  1. Begin by cutting the strips of bacon into 1/4 inch pieces. Place bacon into non-stick pan and let cook on medium-low heat. We want to let it cook slowly while we wait for the water to boil.
  2. Fill a decent-sized pot with water until it’s about 2/3 full. Let it get to a boil.
  3. While water is boiling, add pepper to bacon if desired.
  4. As the water begins to boil, open the packs of ramen and throw the spice packets into a drawer for later use. Toss the ramen in the boiling water. Let cook for about 3 minutes.
  5. You’ll notice the ramen is finished cooking when it gets golden-yellow and the noodles separate. Remove the ice from the bowl of water and ice. Grab the colander and quickly drain the noodles. Immediately after all the water is drained, pour the noodles into the bowl of cold water. Stir the noodles with your hands until they are cold.
  6. By now the bacon should be finished cooking. Keep the grease in the pan. It’s going to coat the noodles. Drain the noodles with the strainer from earlier. Once drained, move the noodles to the pan with the bacon.
  7. Turn the stove up to medium-high heat. Season noodles and bacon with pepper and salt if desired. Stir and turn regularly.
  8. After cooking for a minute or two, pour soy sauce into pan. Continue stirring, mixing everything together. Spice with red pepper flakes. After a couple more minutes on the stove, add more soy sauce if needed. 9. Move noodles to one half of the pan. Take 1 egg and crack it over the side of the pan, and let it fall into the empty half of the pan. Mix egg in pan and let it cook for a minute or two. Cut up the egg and stir in with the rest of the pan’s contents.
  9. Continue cooking and turning for 3 or 4 more minutes.
  10. Empty into bowl and enjoy.

Mustard Pork Ramen

This one sounds interesting, and even more interesting is that it’s from Finland. I think that’s a first for the site. The recipe calls for Colman’s mustard, which is the one my father-in-law recommends for his baked bean recipes (and was amazed to find out that I can’t find it in Colorado).

    Ingredients

  • 1 pack of plain ramen
  • 1-2 slices of bacon or fatty pork
  • 1/2 red onion
  • chopped garlic to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek or other chili
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1+ teaspoon mustard powder (I use Colman\’s)
  • ketjap manis soy sauce
  • egg yolk

This one is easy to make and very very tasty indeed. Measurements are highly approximate, so try it once and suit to taste. Mustard powder is the secret ingredient here: gives the dish a wonderful tangy flavour.

  1. Fry bacon until semi-crispy, turn heat down
  2. Add onion, garlic & sambal and fry for a minute
  3. Add turmeric, curry & mustard powder and fry another minute (heat was down, yes? don’t let the base dry on you)
  4. Add ramen(s), enough water to drown most of ramen, cover and simmer low for 5 mins or so
  5. Drain, leave just a dash of water in the pan
  6. Add egg yolk, stir & add a few good gulps of ketjap manis depending how salty you fancy
  7. Enjoy!

Chicken and Bacon Ramen

You know what improves everything? That’s right, bacon. If you add bacon to a dish, it becomes “fancy”, remember that aspiring cooks, bacon = tasty = fancy.

    Ingredients
    Ingredients are suited to serve one person and are also listed in the order you need to cook them in

  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • one clove of garlic
  • 1 – 2 slices of bacon (depending on preference)
  • chicken slices (approx the size of your palm)
  • soy sauce
  • mixed vegetables
  • 1 packet of whichever noodles you prefer, i use fresh noodles for simplicity (no need to boil them)

If you have noodles that need boiling, I would advise putting them on first. Next, slice the onion and shred the garlic or cut it up (finely). Cut up the bacon into small pieces and add all of the above into a wok (which already has a small amount of olive oil in it) on a low heat. Get the chicken and cut it up, and add it to the wok. Cook until the chicken is completely cooked (a good sign of this is that its completely changed color all over), then add the soy sauce. Allow to cook for a minute extra and then add the mixed vegetables and stir. Then add the cooked noodles, serve and enjoy.

Pork Sauerkraut and Ramen

I don’t like sauerkraut, but I know some folks do… Also, I don’t know what boneless rolled pork is, maybe a pork loin?

    Ingredients

  • 1 small Boneless rolled pork
  • 1 large can of sauerkraut
  • 3-4 packets of Ramen (no flavor packets needed)
  • 3/4 stick of butter
  • 1 tblspoon of black pepper

Open the can of sauerkraut, but do not drain. Pour a little bit of the juices into a slow cooker, and then add the pork. Cover the pork with the sauerkraut and cook for about 8 hours. When the pork is done, pull it and cut it apart, cutting off all the fat. While your finishing up the pork, cook your ramen as normal, draining the noodles . Once the pork is ready, drain the pork/kraut mix, and add the pork and kraut to the noodles. Mix in the butter and stir until evenly mixed, then add the pepper, stir a bit and eat!

Hungry Ramen With Bacon

Bacon is like magic fairy dust, you add it to any meal and you get something that’s instantly “fancier” and certainly tastes better.

    Ingredients

  • 2 Packages of regular Pork Ramen
  • 10 slabs of bacon; sliced to bite sized pieces
  • 2 raw eggs, whipped

  • Couple of dashes of Mushroom Soy Sauce

Open the two packages of the pork ramen and remove the seasoning packets. Set the ramen bricks aside and open the seasoning packets and pour into a large bowl for later use. Get 4 cups of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the sliced Bacon to the boiling water, and right after that, add the two blocks of ramen. Total cook time is 3 minutes. Cook for 2 minutes and 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Then, during the last 30 seconds, slowly pour the raw egg mixture and stirring the ramen noodles constantly. Pour the cooked ramen mixture in the bowl with the seasonings in it and stir. Add a dash of Mushroom Soy sauce, then mix the ramen again. Top it off with some of Green onions and you’re done! If you think you’ll still be hungry after this, add some grilled, sliced pork on top of the ramen when you finished the above.

Pork Noodles

I think it may have been years since I’ve eaten a hard-boiled egg, but this sounds pretty good.

Add soy sauce to taste.

Needs a Name Ramen

Can’t think of a name for this creation, which does sound pretty good! PS – Can anyone think of the word that was misspelled when this recipe was originally submitted to me? It’s impossible to spell, I had to use google.
