If you like instant ramen noodles and want a different way of enjoying it, here is one idea; 10-minute ramen stir-fry with vegetables. This is a great way to use up the leftover vegetables from your fridge. Any vegetables will work. You can upgrade this dish by adding chicken, pork, shrimp to this ramen stir-fry. For me, I just topped mine with a fried egg. Whatever pleases you, put them in. The result is quick, delicious, and satisfying meal in 10 minutes.
I recommend to use Korean spicy ramen.
First, stir-fry the meat and/or vegetables until soft. Vegetables like cabbage, carrot, onion, leek, green pepper, broccoli, Swiss chard, and kale, etc would work great.
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?
You will need to boil the noodles separately then add to the vegetables. The trick is to cook the noodles slightly less than the package instructions. That way you can enjoy the chewiness better. Mix and serve. Drizzle a few drops of sesame oil at the end if you like. That’s all!
I topped mine with a fried egg and some bonito flakes (aka katsuobushi). You can add crushed roasted seaweed, too. Yummy~!
The ramen noodles are so chewy and delicious. You just created a plate of semi-homemade fried noodles with a fraction of time, cost and effort. Now that is what I call, “smart cooking”. Enjoy~!
