If you're going to throw away the flavoring packet and use your own stock and spices, just buy fresh or dry ramen noodles on their own (or make them). You don't have to buy instant ramen.

That being said, number 8 is correct. Roy Choi's method is great. Don't let the addition of American cheese throw you off. It melts into the broth creating a slightly thicker, saltier, more umami packed experience. Add in some veggies, meat and an egg and it's a good bowl for a quick meal.

/ There are lots of recipes for fresh ramen noodles out there. I've never made them, but some of them seem great. I've been meaning to try Ivan Orkin's recipe for rye ramen noodles. You can also "transform" regular spaghetti into an approximation of ramen with baking soda.

None of those are hacks.

That's ass nasty. Don't eat that schitt!

I guy in my class randomly shared this one with us: Go the egg-stra mile. Ramen not out of a packet is known for its soft-boiled egg. Throw one in at home for some extra protein.

That's it... no spices, no green onions, dash of fish sauce... just boil water with flavor MSG packet, add an egg, then add noodles... he acted like it was heavenly and some miraculous thing he figured out.
I'm not sure if he is stupid, stoned or starving.

Yes, we make "Mi noodo"... Japanese "vermacelli", broth, green onions, bok choy, napa cabbage, red onion, radish, steak, chicken, celantro, lettuce... what do we have? Toss is some garlic salt, tamari, fish sauce, Pick-a-peppa, red pepper, dash of sesame seed oil... work it out! Throw in an egg if you must...
Now you have something worth eating.

Wow, thanks!
I never thought of adding sauces or veggies or anything else to noodles. This is  a game changer!

I had spicy ramen for dinner tonight.  The fillers were chicken, mushroom, diced tomatoes and egg.

When did "hack" jump the shark? First time HR used it?

We have a couple boxes of this stuff. It's really good, for instant ramen. I really miss pork belly chashu though

Seconding the sliced cheese. If you want the closest thing to a creamy ramen broth from a packet that's the way to go.

Still, I miss going for the real stuff and making real ramen solo is way too much time for my quantity. And I miss good tsukemen ramen.

Omg my kids love ramen noodles. Easy carb part of meal. Easy to add veggies and meat to compliment.

My way: fry ginger and garlic in butter then a bit of cabbage and carrot. Just lightly fry it all and toss in the noodles (cooked and drained) and the sauce pack. Add a drizzle of sesame oil or sambal and chopped green onions. Add anything the fark you want. Good and perfect are enemies. Make your food accordingly.
