Making a ramen burger is easy, and the unusual noodle-y bun is sure to confuse and delight your taste buds; and your friends! The noodles are soft with great texture, and just like regular ramen noodles these noodle "buns" can be seasoned any way you like.
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!
Open 1 package of ramen noodles and set included soup power aside.
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.
