Fried Ramen

This is probably my favorite all time recipe- it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of stir-frying properly, it’s epically cheap, and epically delicious. I make this stuff all the time and it never ceases to satisfy me. 2 packets of ramen makes a good amount of food, which always fills me up when I’m cooking for one. I usually use 3 or 4 when cooking for two, but the more noodles, the harder it is to stir-fry. For oils, sauces, and spices I don’t every really record a measurement so just put in what seems reasonable.

What you need:

  • 2 packets of ramen noodles, any flavor
  • 1 shallot
  • 3-4 green onions
  • 1 medium sized carrot
  • 2 eggs
  • Soy sauce
  • House of Tsang Schezuan Spicy Stir-Fry sauce (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional for extra spice)
  • Oil (I use peanut oil, but any kind will work)

Heat large fry pan or wok to medium heat while you chop your veggies. Boil water in a separate pot. Put the two ramen bricks in to boil at the same time you put the diced shallots into the fry pan. Add one of the ramen flavor packets to the water to boil with the noodles. Add oil and then shallot to fry pan. Don’t let the shallot burn- stir it around. Then add shredded carrot at which time pepper it and add a bit of soy sauce. Stir-fry that shizz. Strain ramen noodles (don’t let them over cook- I usually under cook them slightly… taste them to check). Add noodles to fry pan. Stir-fry that shizz. Add some more soy sauce. Stir-fry that shizz. Sprinkle in the other ramen flavor packet (skip the flavor packets if you want it truly vegetarian) red pepper flakes if you want them. Stir-fry that shizz. Add diced green onion. Stir-fry that shizz. Add House of Tsang Schezuan Spicy Stir-Fry sauce- sorry for the blatant free promo for this brand, but I like it… it still takes great without this but I think it adds some extra flavor and kick. Stir-fry that shizz. Now move everything over to one side of the pan so you have a clear surface to fry your eggs. Add a little more oil to that area if the pan doesn’t look greased. Add your two eggs- salt and pepper them and scramble. Once the eggs are almost done… mix them into everything else. Stir-fry that shizz!

When you’re doing this for the first time it’s a good idea to stry-fry that shizz for a little longer than you think you should. You want everything to be stir-fried, not steamed, which is what will happen if you just let it sit there and don’t stir-fry that shizz.

  1. I have eaten Pat’s fried ramen and I can say that it is very good.
    It’s a bit on the salty side (since it is ramen) but that makes it even that much more tasty. The egg is perfect in it.
