Introduction: Up Your Ramen Game

Do you live off of instant noodles? Have you gotten bored of the same soggy noodle soup? If so, then this 7 minute recipe will for sure stir up your every day menu.

Step 1: Ingredients

(Picture is for two servings)

  • Instant ramen (I used Shin-Ramen here);
  • One egg;
  • A quarter of an onion;
  • Mirin;
  • Black Pepper.
  • Salt;
  • Vegetable Oil;

Step 2: Cooking the Onion (2 Minutes)

First, add 1 centimeter deep of water in a sauce pan and start heating it to a boil. Meanwhile:

  • Dice the onion;
  • In another sauce pan, heat 3 teaspoons of oil at high heat;
  • add onion for a quick sautee, deglaze with mirin to complement the sweet flavor;
  • Once the onion lightly browns, remove from heat.

Step 3: Cooking the Noodle (3 Minutes)

The water should be boiling at this point. While maintaining high heat:

  • Add in noodles, once one side softens, flip to the other side;
  • Stir and cook until noodle softens completely;
  • Add in the spice pack. Generally you'll only want to add half the normal amount here.
  • Stir frequently until most of the water evaporates (~2 minutes);
  • Add in onion and black pepper.

Step 4: Egg (2 Minutes)

Once you have added the onion, bring the noodle pan to low heat. At the same time:

  • Place the onion pan back to high heat;
  • crack in one egg when the oil is ready, let it brown nicely;
  • Add one third cup of water, Cover with lid for 30 seconds;
  • Open the lid to let water evaporate completely. Remove from pan once its ready.

Step 5: Finish!

Plate the noodle and place the egg on top. Enjoy!
