Chicken Casserole (well… almost) Ramen

Submitted By: Liz

Submitted From: Oklahoma

    Ingredients:

  • 1 package of chicken flavored Ramen
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup
  • Chicken meat (canned or fresh works)
  • Optional: Peas are always good, but not everyone enjoys peas. How sad.

Cook ramen (with flavor packet) as directed by package. Half way through the ramen cooking process add your chicken and peas. MAKE SURE THE CHICKEN IS COOKED BEFORE YOU DO THIS! This step is just to heat it up. Finish cooking ramen to desired consistency. Drain off excess liquid into a seperate container as you will be using it again later! Add can of cream of chicken soup to thenoodles. Continue heating while adding the broth you drained off earlier to the mixture. Add the broth slowly until you get the consistency you want. Some like it soupy… some like it creamy… 1/2 cup to 1 cup is what I like best. Heat until it’s out of the “temperature danger zone” and enjoy!

Submitted From: Laurel, MD

    Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg beef ramen
  • 2 slices butter – not margarine
  • hot sauce
  • pepper
  • Goya Adobo
  • Optional: Steak
  • Optional: Steamed vegetables

Cook as directed. Drain all water, and place ramen in a bowl. Add butter, seaoning packet, hot sauce, pepper, and Adobo to taste. Stir well to combine. Sometimes I add leftover meat and veggies to complete the meal. But it is just as good without them.

Note: Really tastes best with the beef flavor, the hot & spicy isn’t bad, but the oriental flavor is not good prepared this way.

Making Your Own Ramen

Finally! A recipe for Ramen Noodles from Scratch!

Title: Ramen from Scratch
Submitted By: Andrew Lynch
Submitted From: Johnson and Wales University, – Miami, FL
Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs
  • salt
  • 1 T. water
  • Oil for frying

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and water. Combine until it comes together to form a nice pasta dough. Let rest 30 minutes, then roll through pasta machine with an angel hair attactment. Twirl your desired amount in a nest. Let your nests dry for a couple hours, then deep fry for 3 minutes on each side. Let cool. Boil in salted water until tender. (Since this is fresh ramen without any perservites, store in the fridge for up to a week, or freeze for 3 months)

Andrew notes, “I am a culinary arts major at Johnson and Wales Univeristy. I love to cook, and whenever possible I make all my own ingredients from scratch.”

Fried Spicy Barbecue Ramen

Submitted By: Kate

Submitted From: Chicago

    Ingredients:

  • Ramen of any variety
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Hot Sauce
  • Cooking Spray
  • Minced Garlic (the kind that comes in the jar)
  • Brown Sugar

Set a pot of water on one burner and a frying pan on another. Prepare ramen in the pot using only half the seasoning packet. When it’s done, turn the heat off and let it sit in the broth.
Turn on the burner under the frying pan and give the pan a good coating of cooking spray. When I say ‘good’, I mean four or five passes with the spray. Alternatively, if you have liquid cooking oil, you should use that. I don’t have any, so I have to substitute PAM. Add a few shakes of hot sauce, however much you think you can handle, and the remaining seasoning from the ramen. If you have brown sugar, put a teaspoon or so in the pan. If you have that minced garlic stuff, put a bit (1/4 tsp.) in the pan and pour some of the oil from the jar in the mix. Move it all around a few times with the spatula so it doesn’t burn.
Strain ramen noodles, but leave them wet. Add them to the pan. Lots of sizzling, etc. Toss them around until they’re coated with the mix and start to become brown. You should let parts of it become crispy. When it’s done, turn off the heat and add enough barbecue sauce to lightly coat the whole mess. Stir it up in the frying pan, then slide it onto a plate. Mmmm.

Note: Chicken ramen is definitely the best, but I’m guessing pork ramen wouldn’t be too terrible if you like pork. The brown sugar and garlic (both *very* affordable and long lasting) are semi-optional. The recipe won’t taste good without them.
