Ramen add-ins : Simple Vegetables For quick-cooking vegetables like baby spinach, sliced cabbage, or frozen peas, just add them after you pull the noodles off heat. Some vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, or thick snap peas can go in the pot about 2 minutes before its done boiling.

ramen : Stir-fried Beef and Snap Peas Toss a quarter pound of thinly sliced flank steak with half of the seasoning packet, then simmer the noodles just until they break apart (don't overcook them!). Drain the noodles and set them aside. In a large wok or skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil until smoking. Add the beef and cook without moving for about 1 minutes until well-browned. Toss the meat a few times. Add a quarter pound of snap peas and stir fry for about 1 minute. Add another tablespoon…

Ramen : Simple Simmered Meat Thinly sliced meats can be cooked in a matter of seconds directly in the pot. Chicken breast, pork tenderloin, or flank steak are all great candidates. I like to pick the pieces up one at a time and swish them back and forth in the hot broth until cooked while the noodles are simmering, then set the cooked meat aside and put it back on top right before serving. Cured meats like ham or bacon are great as well, as are cooked meats like leftover chicken or steak

Faux Pho Cook the noodles according to package directions, using only half of the seasoning packet. To the broth, add the juice of 1 lime, a tablespoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of fish sauce, and a good pinch of pepper flakes (if desired). Transfer to a serving bowl then add 1 to 2 ounces thinly sliced flank steak (it'll cook in the broth), a handful of bean sprouts, and some mixed herbs (basil, cilantro, mint, as desired).

Ramac & Cheese An obvious selection, no? Unlike real elbow macaroni, the ramen itself is almost as goopy as the cheese sauce, making this dish texturally… interesting. You can use homemade cheese sauce, or just use a half block of Velveeta mixed with some milk and butter (heat it up in the microwave until gooey). Combine the cooked noodles with the cheese sauce, top with more cheese, and broil until brown and bubbly.

Cold Peanut And Coconut Ramen Salad Somewhere between a Thai-style peanut dipping sauce and a cold sesame noodle salad. You can barely recognize the low-brow roots of this classy rendition. Boil the noodles as directed, then drain them and add them back to a pot filled with cold water. Meanwhile, mix together a couple tablespoons of peanut butter (chunky!) and half of the seasoning packet along with 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, and a tablespoon or so of chili-garlic sauce (yes, sriracha works…

Ramen Corn Chowder An elegant soup, from a more civilized age. A balanced sweet, salty, smoky chowder with tender kernels of corn. To make it, start by crunching up the noodles in the bag, then transfer them to a saucepan along with a can of creamed corn and a few strips of bacon, sliced up. Fill the empty creamed corn can with water and add it to the pot. Add half the seasoning packet, then bring the whole thing to a simmer and cook until the noodles are nice and tender. The soup will…

Ramen: Simple Add-ins Quickly upgrade the flavor of any bowl of ramen by stirring in miso paste, chili bean sauce, Thai curry paste, Japanese curry powder, fish sauce, or vinegar. If it's a salty condiment, omit about half of the seasoning packet. You can also add spices (white pepper, sichuan pepper, or chili flakes are great), oils (sesame oil, chili oil), or citrus (lemon or lime). Or, whatever you feel like, of course.
