How to make Ramen and Vegetable Stir-Fry
First, Bring a pot of water to boil, add the ramen noodles and cook slightly shorter than the package direction, about 3-4 minutes. Drain the noodles in a colander.
Ramen noodle cooking tip: Cook the noodles slightly less than the package instructions. Drain in a colander.
While noodle is boiling, stir-fry the vegetables until soft, about 3 minutes.
Sprinkle about 2/3 of the seasoning packet that comes in the package to the vegetables and continue to stir-fry. There is no need to make a separate sauce to season. So convenient, right?
Add the noodles to the vegetables and mix. Drizzle a few drops of sesame oil at the end if you like. That’s all!
Topping Option for Ramen noodle Bowl
You can enjoy this stir-fried ramen and vegetables as is. It makes a great vegetarian noodle dish.
If you want it to be more satisfying meal with extra flavor, top with a fried egg and some bonito flakes (aka katsuobushi). Crumbled roasted seaweed would be a nice addition as well.
The ramen noodles are so chewy and delicious. With this simple recipe, you can create a plate of semi-homemade fried noodles with a fraction of time, cost and effort. Now that is what I call, “smart cooking”. Enjoy~!

Hello Holly, it’s me, Emily from the Bulgogi recipe again. Lol
I saw that you used a ramen pack called Jin Ramen, but I, erm, don’t have that kind of Ramen. I only have the cheap top ramen stuff (I don’t know what the brand is). I don’t think it’s specifically Korean.
Will that still work?
You can use any ramen brand you like. Although I prefer a Korean brand for their flavor, you can use one of those cheap ramen you mentioned as well. You will just get a different flavor.
What a great idea! Fast and tasty — can’t beat that combo! Thanks for the comment.
