Step 1: Ingredients...

Here is what you need to cook thid Super Ramen.

First.... the Ramen itself. I buy this Korean ramen named "Nature is Delicious" (i know... korean people make up the wierdest crap). The reason i buy this becasue it is spicy and taste clean. The noodles ARE NOT fried, so the calorie count is significantly less than your normal Ramen. It compensates for what im about to put in i guess xD

Next, you will need to hot dog links, thin sliced rice cakes, an egg, a slice of cheese, and a stalk of green onions (which i ran out of T^T)

Most unimportantly.. you need a pot and water..... :b

Step 2: Preparing the soup base

So get a pot bout that size... no specs sorry

I put water in so it is ever so slightly over an inch in depth. Next, put in the powder and crap-dried vegetables. Get you chop stick, stir stir stir. I put in a bunch more of red pepper flakes becasue i would disgrace my race by not doing so. Close lid and bring to boil.

Step 3: Put in Rice Cakes.

Rice cakes are awesome and add an awesome chewy texture to your Ramen. It also soaks up all the flavor, thus being awesome. When the soup base prepared comes to a boil, add a handful of these sliced rice cakes, close lid, and let boil again.

Step 4: Prepare the egg

Typically, most people just crack their egg inside the Ramen and let it cook into a little ball. However, this is Super Ramen and the effort must be taken to prepare it. I crack one egg inside a small bowl and beat it until it is homogenized throughout. By doing this, we can get egg parts throguh out the entire ramen and is good for eating with extra rice too.
This is kind of okay but man, you could do it up a lot better. First, skip the hot dogs - that's nasty. I'd hit up some odeng that's way better. Also, where be the kimchi? That stuff is grubbin. A lot of onions is nice as well. Anyways, yeah I think the only reason lonely Korean guys'd be eating that is because they're letting their 'I can't cook' flag fly... Don't get me wrong - Instant noodles are my life - www.theramenrater.com - that's my thing and all. But ya gotsta finesse it.

Sorry, just dont like fish cake an kimci in every single meal i eat every day. I tried onions once, but they add this flavor that turns the ramen into a kind of jjambong, which i did not like. But dont get me wrong, onions are my favorite vegetable

That looks delicious!
my mom said that i only can eat an instant noodle once a week. but, every time my mom go somewhere...i go buy some instant noodle at the market...i did the same thing like in the instructables accept i don't put some cheese in it. ow...i also doesn't put the spices when cooking the noodle....i put the boiled stuff on a bowl then add the spices.
That is some fancy ramen. And I have to admit this sounds good!
