Introduction: Top Ramen in Microwave

Top Ramen is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen; so yummy yet so cheap. I'm in college, I don't have to resources to boil a pot of water to make my favorite soup, so I looked for an alternative. With some ingenuity and your everyday dorm microwave you can now have you own oriental cuisine any time you want.

Step 1: Measure Out 2 Cups of Water Into Your Bowl of Choice.

Use Pyrex because it won't explode when you put it in the microwave, unlike styrofoam, foil, or hamsters. Oh, and make sure you have the ramen too. Some people will say that using the "ramen-noodle-in-a-cup-with-vegetables" variety is easier since you only have to boil the water. Noodles in a cup are for wusses. And besides, why would you want vegetables in your noodles? It ruins the whole premise.

Step 2: Microwave Bowl and Water for 3 Minutes So the Water Is Really Hot.

Since microwaves heat the water from every direction, not just the bottom like stoves, you will never have boiling. It does get hot enough to make the noodles though.

Step 3: Put the Noodles in the Bowl.

It's a good idea to break up the noodles so they are all in the water and receive equal amounts of heat and moisture from the hot water.

Step 4: Microwave the Noodles for 5 Minutes.

If you have time, its a good idea to stir the noodles every minute but it is not absolutly required. The pictures show the noodles in progression of how it breaks down each minute.

Step 5: Put the "Artificial Beef Flavoring" in the Bowl You're Eating From.

Some will say to put it in with the ramen but that makes clean up all messy and nasty.

Step 6: When You're Done, Put Everything in the Sink and Hope Your Roommate Takes Care of It.

Thank you for this. I was a little skeptical of the 5 minute cook after adding noodles, based on the comment that someone thought they were too done. Nope! They were great. I have to confess though...I doctored the bowl pretty heavily.

7-minute egg (timed after adding to boiling water...makes the yolk just set)
2 scallions sliced
hot chili oil (to taste)
a little extra soy sauce
a clove of garlic minced finely (add when there are at least 2 minutes left in cook time)
a dash of ginger juice (or powdered ginger)
a dash of fish sauce...not too much

Elevated well beyond what a 33 cent pack of "soup" should taste like.

You have to stir it after putting the noodles in the bowl.

nice, but why put the flavor in after? The noodles won't absorb any of the flavor and will instead taste worse than when you put the pack in first.

I just made this account just to tell you thank you! I have always hated top ramen and supper meal bowls and any type of noodle stuff like this. I’ve tried for years to find a way to make it to where’s i can’t stand to eat it without complaining and your instructions have made my search for the perfect way to make these horrible noodles actually really good. So thank you whoever you are. You made my sad life complete. I also put hot sauce and soy sauce in mine.

I would just stir in the flavor packet and eat from the bowl I cooked it in. Only one dish that way!

Did you know Ramen Noodles have microwave instructions on the Back? Sometimes it's just easier to pay attention to these things
