Ramen burger

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!

Step 1:

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

Once the noodles have cooled, crack an egg into the noodles and sprinkle in the soup powder. Gently mix until completely combined.

Step 3: Forming the buns

Picture of Forming the buns
To form the buns line any small round-bottomed dish with plastic food wrap. I used small disposable baking tins, but coffee cups or bowls without much taper also work well.

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.

I actually just made this account because i wanted to thank you for sharing such an amazing recipe! Just made this with chicken schnitzel and chicken noodles and it was DELICIOUS! Would recommend to everyone here!
I used egg rings to set to bun and they worked really well.

Sideways ramen burger!!!  Kale, caramelized onions, tomato, raspberry wasabi mustard and bleu cheese!  Also, some sweet potato fries following Jessyratfink's instructable!  

I uh… had some issues with the image uploader/library thing.  It rotated my image 90˚ from how it was on my computer…  

Thanks for the excellent 'ible!  These were simple and delicious!

Looks just as tasty sideways! And, with a glass of vino, very fancy.

I made it, but it was an open sandwich, since most of my attempts at the buns were unsuccessful. It was still very tasty!

This might be good with the ramen as the "meat" instead of the bun.

Try it and tell me how it is!

I am totally trying this, if I can resist just eating the ramen noodles for long enough!

It looks like the buns would be good by themselves too, like bread, though maybe with less than a whole pack of seasoning so it's not too salty

This was done from a you tube show called wok the fok or something. It was plastered everywhere.

I'm not being mean in any way with the instructable. He's just hilarious. He does a ton of videos on food asian style while being funny as hell. Check it out.

This is cool something for college student like myself because it combines the two things we eat a lot of ramen and burgers.
