This meal is just like my post: simple, easy, and lazy. I keep pushing this post back since it’s a great filler. Haha. Sorry.
This no brain meal can be dressed up or down as much as you want. I was going to make scrambled eggs, but then I got complicated.
Easy Stir Fried Ramyun Noodles
- Toasted Sesame Oil
- Everything but the Bagel Seasoning
- Protein of Choice, I did Spam but you can use whatever you want! Tofu, Chicken, or Whatever.
- Shin Ramyun, or your noodles of choice. I’ve made this with normal Ramen
- Soy Sauce
- Oyster Sauce (Optional)
- White Pepper (Optional)
To start out, I stir fried some SPAM until it was crispy. I put it aside to drain the grease on a paper towel. Then I fried myself some eggs. Add as little or as much as you want. You can do whatever protein you want, chicken is always nice or tofu does really well. Set the egg aside once you’ve got it scrambled.
Cook your noodles al dente. Drain them right after you cook them so they don’t overcook. If you’re doing fresh veggies in this, you’ll want to cook the veggies in some sesame oil first to get them tender. I was brain dead the day I made these, so nothing fancy went into them. I put some sesame oil in the pan, heated up some garlic paste, then added some of the Everything Bagel Seasoning to brown it and get those seasonings aromatic. Then I added my cooked noodles along with some soy sauce. If you have dark soy sauce, you need heat to activate it! The oyster sauce goes in right now as well. Just a Tablespoon will do.
Add some white pepper. You can add red pepper flakes in as well to give it even more heat. Or some hot chili oil too. I’m sensitive to spice so a little goes a long way in my book. Then you add your meat and egg back into the noodles. Stir fry it! If it gets too dry, add some more soy sauce. This recipe is super easy and fun to change up. If you don’t want it spicy, you can do a sweet variation. Instead of oyster sauce, you’ll want to put some butter, brown sugar, and a little ginger to make it like a Teriyaki sauce. My SO is pretty big on spicy. (Especially ever since he had COVID last year. His sense of taste never fully recovered.) He adds some of the fresh Kimchi that I make to the noodles.
I hope you like this recipe! I’ve seen something similar trending on the TikTok, but this is just something I’ve eaten since my college days.
