If you mix sloppy joe meat into a cooking pot of beef ramen noodles, and let the water boil off some, you get a dish that tastes eerily like Hamburger Helper.

Current Music: "Stroke of Luck" - Garbage
I just recently started experimenting with top ramen. What I did last night was outrageously wonderful!!!

I don't know how much of everything I put it... but I added lemon juice, vinegar, and soy sauce to the water (we'll say 1 Tblsp soy sauce, 1 Tblsp lemon juice, 1/2 tblsp vinegar.) Then I added chopped up mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, carrots, and onions. After it boiled then I added the noodles and the flavour pack (roast beef this time). Oh man it was sooo good!!!

Current Mood: happyhappy
A little while ago, someone asked if there was any ramen out there without MSG. I gave a little history behind the MSG, and pointed out that Westbrae made a ramen that used Kombu powder instead of MSG, but they were hard to find and expensive. I can get them for $2.19/package, and no, the package is no larger than the Nissin or Maruchan ramen you can find in the supermarket for about twenty cents.

Koyo Ramen, however...Collapse )

Not quite ramen, but soy sauce often goes with ramen:

I tried the ramen and eggs thing the other night... I think I did something wrong.

I boiled the water, put in the noodles, set the time, cracked 2 eggs into the pot, stirred occasionaly, waited for the 3 minutes to pass, added the chicken flavor packet, drained some of the water, and tasted it. It was gross. Am I just not an egg-ramen person or did I do something horribly wrong?

Even ramen is too complicated for me. :(

PS anyone have any cup noodle recipes or is that too far fetched? :)

There are lots of odd recipes in the database (click the All Recipes link), so don't be surprised.

One of my favorite meals in college:
-veggie burger
-pepper jack cheese
Cut the veggie patty and cheese into pieces, mix with cooked ramen, microwave to melt cheese.

Now I have become more sophisticated. Lunch a couple of days ago:
-ramen (chicken flavor)
-baby spinach
-black beans
Pour boiling water over ramen to cover. Add some beans and cover the bowl with spinach to keep warm as it cooks. Spinach will wilt slightly. Mix.
