  • 1 pkg Ramen noodle soup (Beef or Chicken)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1-2 tsp soy sauce to taste
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar (or apple cider vinegar, if you don\’t have this kind)
  • dash red pepper flakes
    Optional Ingredients

  • 1/2 can bean sprouts
  • 1 green onion, chopped (green part only)
  • corn starch or xanthan gum powder

In a medium saucepan, combine the water, the ramen noodles (break up in package first), contents of seasoning packet, and bean sprouts (if opted). Heat on high until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and cook for an additional 10-15 mins or until noodles are cooked to your preferred 'doneness'.

Add the soy sauce and vinegar and stir for a minute or two.

Serve immediately, garnished with green onions.

Make sure you can eat all of this at once, or share it with someone, as the leftover version isn\'t very tasty.

Note: If you want to thicken the soup to a consistency more like the Asian restaurants serve it, take 1 tsp corn starch or xanthan gum powder and 3 tablespoons cold water and mix them together in a small bowl or cup, stirring until dissolved. Add this to the pot after the first time it boils, bring to boil again to thicken.

This is something I made one day & have made it quite a bit sense. It’s quick & easy & most people have the ingredients on hand.


  • 1 package of shrimp ramen noodles
  • 1 can of tuna fish
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • vinegar
  • lemon juice or lemon pepper seasoning
  • hot sauce
  • dill weed
  • dried onion flakes
  • oyster crackers
  • butter or margarine

Cook the noodles as directed. Add the can of tuna (drained & flaked), chop the hard boiled egg & add to pot. Use the next 5 seasonings to taste, I usually use about a teaspoon of vinegar, a half teaspoon of lemon juice, a few drops of hot sauce depending on the brand I'm using, a pinch of dill weed, and a teaspoon of onion flakes. Let stand for several minutes to allow the flavors to blend together & the onion flakes to rehydrate. Top with oyster crackers, a pat of butter & enjoy!

Toasted Ramen

I’m finally back in town from California (work) and then Winter Park (skiing). Enjoy the recipes!

This is a simple way to make a sort of "toasted ramen". It comes from Dylan in Palm Bay, Florida.

The directions on the back of the maruchan noodles package tells to use hot water. But putting about 2/3 a cup into the ramen and microwaving 5-6 mins will make the ramen spongy not burned but yet not completely wet. It is a great new way to eat ramen.

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.


I’ve been using Netflix for about 3 months now. It is a great service that my wife and I love. To help pay for the bandwidth costs, I added a Netflix banner to the right hand side of the page. So far, no takers! Anyway, if you are going to sign up for Netflix anyway, please do so through this site.
