Ramen noodles is no longer just for the college dorm room. People long past graduation have warmed up to the traditional Japanese dish and are dressing it up in a number of ways that college students wouldn't be able to recognize it. You can find all of those recipes on Yummly…
The traditional ramen noodle soup takes about three days to make (it's all about the broth), but if you have good noodles, you can make all sorts of ramen soups with few hacks that make it taste like the three-day version. You can find recipes like 20-minute sriracha ramen, blackened chicken ramen, coconut curry ramen, or vegetarian ramen noodle soup. However easy or complicated you want to make your ramen, Yummly has a recipe for it.
We all love a good ramen steeped in broth, but the noodles are excellent for making stir-fry more interesting. If you boil your noodles just a little less than you would for soup, drain them and let them cool for a minute, you can throw them into your stir-fried veggies and meat, and you have a restaurant-style noodle dish. There are hundreds of recipes on Yummly you can use for inspiration -- sesame garlic ramen stir-fry, beef and broccoli ramen stir-fry, bacon and shrimp ramen stir-fry, or easy chicken ramen stir-fry.
Chicken and ramen are the perfect flavor marriage of carbs and protein, but the pair can take on many different dishes. Yummly is packed with ideas like General Tso's Chicken Ramen, Chicken Tsukune Spring Ramen (chicken meatballs), miso chicken ramen, or ginger-glazed chicken ramen. Made with chicken broth for a chicken noodle soup or as a noodle dish, flavor combinations abound on Yummly.
Uncooked ramen is one of the more brilliant uses of these noodles. They're crunchy and flavorful, so they bring a lot to the salad party. You can find simple Asian ramen noodle salads like ramen broccoli-sesame oil salad, or cabbage ramen salad, or you can find fusion recipes like crunchy ramen taco salad or Southwestern chicken ramen salad. It's like sprinkling a bit of fun on your veggies.
For some, the complementary carb for beef is ramen and we have dozens of recipes to try. If you're looking for dishes on the traditional side, you'll find ramen noodle recipes like Korean spicy beef ramen, beef and broccoli ramen, or Instant Pot Mongolian beef ramen. If you want something out of your kitchen comfort zone, you can find recipes like ramen noodle bake which calls for tomato sauce, ground beef, and mozzarella cheese baked in a casserole dish or something like the ramen burger which uses the uncooked noodle squares as buns as the vessel for beef patties. Whatever you imagine doing with your beef and ramen, Yummly has the ramen recipe for you.
If you're really ambitious, you can find recipes for homemade ramen. Most recipes for homemade ramen are referring to making the broth and add-ins, not making the noodles from scratch. That means you can skip the seasoning packet in favor of interesting ideas for things like spicy vegan Thai ramen, kimchi ramen, or spicy tofu and shiitake mushroom ramen. We have all sorts of ramen recipes to make your weeknight meals a bit tastier.
Most ramen recipe call for instant ramen packets of noodles and a few add-ins to make it healthier, more interesting, or just enough to make it a one-pot meal. They'll add items like miso, bok choy, sesame seeds, or scallions but maintaining a total time for cooking under 20 minutes -- there's a reason college students love ramen and Yummly has hundreds of recipes to keep the enthusiasm alive long after graduation!
There are almost too many ways to work pork into your ramen for a delicious meal. Pork and turnip miso ramen, Thai pork ramen, spicy pork belly ramen, or ramen pork chashu -- the possibilities are endless, which means you don't have to make a boring dinner with Yummly on your side.
