What do you put in your ramen?

You know... instant noodles.

My favorites:

Using not that much water, frying the noodles with frozen veggies, a diced chinese sausage and curry powder.

Making the soup regularly, keeping the heat real high and crack and egg in. Maybe a little soysauce and hotsauce.

Put cheese sandwich in a bowl, pour instant soup on top. Gooeylicious!

I don't eat them very often... once a year maybe. But, my son loves them. He opens a small can of peas and a can of corn and throws those in. He also takes out most of the broth. It's just toooo salty.

My grandson practically lives off them. He dumps off most of the water and eats them plain.
I've made some very good casseroles with them...and you sure can't beat the price.

If I've got a small amount of a clear soup left over, eg cock a leekie - I just pour it over the ramen noodles for a satisfying lunch snack.

I also like to use them in stir fries.

I poach an egg in the soup once the noodles are almost done. Also have been known to put chinese chives, tomato & shrimp. If I have a Vietnamese meat patty, I'll cut a piece of that into it too. Once done, sometimes I put a dash of red wine vinegar & hot sauce before serving.

Though I'm a ramen snob, I never eat the stuff you get at costco or the local grocery store (the orange label one). I only buy the brands at my local Asian store. They have a lot more variety and taste better IMO.

I loved this stuff as a kid, but realy don't eat it any more (not quite the healthiest food going ). But if you want to see someone who is a devoted ramen fan check out this site:

And for a brief history of ramen:

I put in bok choy and diced Spam. One time I tried cracking an egg intot he hot soup then stirring it around. It tasted pretty good. What flavors do you usually get? I always get the Oriental flavor then add extra garlic and ginger.

I like the creamy chicken the best; it doesn't taste as salty. Most times I just add fresh grated Parmesan to it and black pepper.

Actually I usually skip the flavor's entirely... I have a drawer full of flavor packets since I usually use sauces or actual broth for the liquid. That also fixes the problem of them beeing too salty...

As for buying it at an asiam market I agree... I love my super 88.
