“Taught to me by a good friend over late nights in front of old movies on the tube. The wonderful thing about this recipe, in my opinion, is that it is as versatile as a set of Lego blocks. It's a ton of fun to tinker with the ingredients. Use whatever you have lying around - the only essential thing is the egg-coated ramen with one-half pack of seasoning. Multiply it for friends, or double it for yourself - because if you add another egg and a sausage link it's even great for breakfast. Oh, and I don't have a wok, so I use an 4-quart cooking pan when I multiply this for my kids.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 package ramen noodles, flavor to match meat if possible
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 ounce fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Drop ramen into boiling water for*exactly* two minutes.
  2. Scramble egg in a small bowl.

  5. Add meat and around a tablespoon of soy sauce to the skillet and cook thoroughly.
