Keizo Shimamoto created the ramen burger and shares all his ramen adventures on his blog. When he debuted the burger this year at a food fair in Brooklyn, NY people waited hours in long lineups for his original, noodle-y, twist on the classic burger. Now you can make your own ramen burger at home!
All you need to make your own ramen burger buns are a pack of ramen noodles and an egg. 1 pack of ramen nooodles makes 4 "buns".
Let's make a ramen burger!
Place noodles into pot of boiling water, remove from heat and let soak for about 2 minutes. Strain water and let noodles cool completely, about 5-10 minutes.
Step 2: Mix in egg and beef base
Step 3: Forming the buns
Line the containers with plastic food wrap and scoop in a portion of noodles, then fold the plastic wrap over the noodle. I was able to stack my tins, and weighed them down with a large glass jar. The added weight from the jar will compress the noodles and help them keep a puck-like shape.
Place the noodles and weight into the fridge for about 30 minutes.
