Amounting in 40 dollars worth of sales.

Let me help you with that notion Subby

Step 1) Boil the ramen noodles in a pot for ~4 minutes
Step 2) while they're doing that scramble a couple eggs and add milk and the ramen's flavor packet to the mixture (you have to whisk pretty hard to get the flavor packet to mix well)
Step 2.5) heat a frying pan with some butter or olive oil under medium heat
Step 3) drain the noodles and throw them into the frying pan
Step 4) slowly drizzle the egg mixture over the noodles
Step 5) wait til the eggs are cooked
Step 6) put in bowl and add sriracha

You end up with some of the most delicious ramen you can make. Almost all the unhealthiness is in the flavor packet, so if you're concerned about sodium just add less.

I had ramen for breakfast today.

1 pack of shrimp flavor, 1 pack of chili flavor, throw the noodles in a big bowl with hot water and microwave for four minutes, pull it out and add the flavor packets plus a lot of malt vinegar and texas pete hot sauce, stir it up and let it sit for a few minutes for the noodles to finish cooking in the residual heat, enjoy!

MMMM...Spicy chicken ramen with sliced smoked vienna sausages and jalapenos.

This movie may change your mind about noodles. It is also one of the best movies about our relationship with food and family. Juzo Itami's movie is absolutely brilliant. Ken Watanabe is fantastic, it is the perfect "ramen Western" and genuinely touching and funny, and acerbic at times, and I do believe it's on Hulu even as we speak. It is one of my favorite films of all time, and that includes even Suspicion, which is up there. Not to denigrate Eat, Drink, Man, Woman, but Juzo's film is superior in just about every facet.

I refused to eat Ramen for a while after having a hatred for the smell (stemming from waking up to the smell of my roommate microwaving Ramen at 4am my freshman year of undergrad), but I rediscovered its awesomeness a couple weeks back. Yay for enjoying super-cheap food.
 
2013-04-28 01:25:49 PM  
I can't eat that store stuff.  Have to make my own.   It has wayyyyyy too much sodium.

Definitely going to try this.

I absolutely love that film.  As far as food or restaurant movies go, Tampopo and Big Night are the best in every way.

/just don't watch either if you're hungry and haven't gone shopping, and it's too late to do anything about it

raerae1980: I can't eat that store stuff.  Have to make my own.   It has wayyyyyy too much sodium.


Throw away the spice packet or better yet, avoid the 25¢ kind and spring for the stuff that costs 40¢ or so.

This is a good brand hand has THREE flavor packets and is not terribly salty
You also have to add vegetables and meat. it's a soup base, not an entire meal.

But avoid Top Ramen or Maruchan.
Pot noodle/cup o' ramen is right out.

What about the poor bastard that can't afford eggs, milk, butter, or olive oil?

Hell, if the Republicans have their way, pretty soon low income people won't be allowed to own a refrigerator.

It would probably be wise to invest in the company that makes those crap noodles.

I got hooked on ramen 25 years ago while stationed in Korea and haven't been able to kick the habit. Still eat it once or twice per week.
 
2013-04-28 02:26:30 PM  
Oh, and adding a bit of kimchi makes it awesome as well.

I got hooked on Pho. But I've never been to Vietnam, I just used to be a heavy drinker.

have you seen the student loan situation out there?  kids have to still eat ramen for years after school now. i'd really like to see a comparison study on that.

Who is this subby person and who gives a flying fark what subby thinks about cheap food? Fark that dude.
 
2013-04-28 02:33:48 PM  
that's a lot of sodium.
 
2013-04-28 02:34:00 PM  
I do eat a lot of noodles, but usually from the asian grocery.  The imported kinds are usually pretty damn good.
 
2013-04-28 02:34:50 PM  
Does that include the stuff that's been hot-glue-gunned onto a bunch of dudes' hair?

This is why I think poor people that starve deserve it.

I add frozen peas and sprinkle with cheese. Definitely going to try the egg/milk recipe up above.
 
2013-04-28 02:38:16 PM  
Pitch the flavor packet. Boil the ramen with a boullion cube, garlic and onion salts, and a squirt of either Frank's Red Hot, or Sriracha. Just before you take it off of the stove, crack an egg into the mixture, and let it sit for a couple of seconds. drain 90% if the liquid carefully (to not lose any egg) and serve. Sriracha to taste. Yum.
 
2013-04-28 02:38:28 PM  
I always add extra salt to my ramen noodles.  Extra salt and pepper.  Lots of pepper. And salt.
 
2013-04-28 02:39:50 PM  
Ramen is delicious.  I eat it a couple times month.

Dude, that's one step forward and one step back.  Read the ingredients on your bouillon package sometime.

manwithplanx: Almost all the unhealthiness is in the flavor packet


Not really. The flavor packet is a major salt bomb, but the excessive grease content is because the noodles are fried. The noodles are, themselves, just refined flour, so... if you'd care to take a look at the nutritional content, there's nothing there except a bare minimum of fiber and iron, that's it.

It's cheap, it's easy to make, and it's filling, but it's not really food. I'm not saying I won't eat it but, even a can of Spaghettios has dramatically more nutritional value.

Sick? Ramen noodles is the God sent gift for students all over the country.

Cheapest and easiest food I could find as a college student.

I buy the frozen Bird's Eye stir fry veggies and then toss them with cooked ramen noodles after the veggies are done. Then I serve it with egg rolls.

LOL at the recession timeline.

When your neighbor loses his job its a recession, when you lose your job its a farking depression.
 
2013-04-28 02:44:04 PM  
I do mine as directed, then drain off the liquid. I then stir-fry it with onions, whatever kind of meat and veggies, egg, soy (or hoisin, ponzu or teriyaki) sauce, and sesame oil. Kicks ass.
 
2013-04-28 02:44:42 PM  
My way:

1)
Add a sliced hard-boiled egg
or scramble an egg and stir it raw into the boiling broth (before adding noodles) for egg-drop ramen.

2)
Add something green (green beans, peas, spinach)

1 hot dog, 1 processed cheese slice, and either an OB Lager or one of those little bottles of Jinro Soju.

Lots of good recipes in here. Well, good for ramen. You know what I mean.

Anyone have a practical lunch solution, in a highly corporate environment? We've got microwaves. And I suspect they would deeply frown on my bringing a camp stove. I'm not a vegetarian by any means, but I do like to do a lunch more focused on veg, or non-meat protein sources, than the reverse. Helps keep a balance for when dinner is fastfood cheeseburger or taco bell etc.
 
2013-04-28 02:48:22 PM  
My way:

Make Ramen.

Add vegetable contents of freezer.

Add condiments that haven't expired from refrigerator.

Smoke pot.

Eat noodles.

WINA's website lists several disaster relief efforts, the most recent being 300,000 units sent to victims of Typhoon Bopha in the Philippines.

Hmm... I was under the impression the majority of the instant noodles that are sold are of the non-nutritional value. As in, possibly more harmful to you than helpful because of all the sodium and stuff.

That's ridiculously easy.

Roast a bunch of root veggies and eat them cold.
Make pasta salad with lots of veggies
Veggies in a bag, steam in the microwave
