    I usually pour some soy sauce into the water before it starts boiling. Minced onion in there is good -- it gets to the proper consistency by the time noodles are done cooking. I also usually put a tablespoon or so of peanut butter in when the noodles are done cooking -- it thickens the liquid & adds great flavor (if you like peanut butter, try this even if it doesn't sound good - you may be surprised). Canned chicken or a hand full of cashews add protein.

    I'll cook 2 packs of noodles and add some mixed veggies and canned chicken. Only use one packet of flavoring. I call it "Poor Man's Lo Mein"

    Apropos "Lo Mein." The word "Ramen" is a Japanese derivation of the Chinese "Lo Mein."

    We sometimes call them "welfare noodles" (No offense intended towards those having recourse to the County dime) My favourite preparation method is to get a small amount of water boiling in a small pot (just enough to cover the noodles). Crush the noodles into the water (remembering to remove the flavour condom packet). By the time the noodles are nicely al dente, most of the water should be boiled away. I like a little starchy water left in there, for saucy goodness. Stir in an envelope of bouillon if you have it, or the flavour condom packet, if you don't. (I prefer chicken flavour. Since it is no longer 1982, I will refrain from offering commentary on what the "oriental" flavour is supposed to taste like). For yet more sauciness and taste, stir in a goodly knob of butter. (Nigella Lawson fans may prefer to use a "wodge" of butter, rather than a knob.) Perhaps one might even add some nigella as well. (I'm thinking the spice, not the lady, but chacun a son gout)

    Put egg in it. While it's boiling, after you put the noodles in, crack an egg in. It might taste different though.

    I put chopped up marinated flank, rice, green peas, and carrots. one problem I had with the beef was the flavor, before I boiled the beef, it was delisious. after boiling there wasn't much of the original flavor left.

    thats a good idea, and you could even bread the steak too. just paint the meat with egg then roll it in bread. to keep it the meat warm putting it in the oven, then take it out at the last minute. man I love food!

    if you bread it and add it to the noodles it would get soggy, unless you made a batter then it wouldnt be so bad
