If you’re anything like me, you were once a broke college student who lived in a two foot by two foot dorm room with a roommate. After my freshman year at FSU, I swore that I would never eat Ramen Noodles ever again. Then, after graduation I noticed noodles were everywhere! Restaurants began to pop up all over the Raleigh area, and although the dishes were super delicious, I thought that I could make something just as great, and in my opinion I did.
What you will need:
2 packs beef flavored ramen noodles
You will learn pretty quickly that you can make some of the best meals with the least amount of ingredients. When recipes call for over 10 ingredients from 10 different planets, I’ll tend to order take out instead. With fewer ingredients and less time, you can make the perfect meal fast!
First, bring water to a boil in a deep sauce pan. Drop in both packs of noodles and let cook until soft (about 7 minutes). Drain the noodles, and add broth to the same sauce pan and place on a lower heat level, or simmer. Add ½ TSP of minced garlic to the broth, 1 pinch of salt and 2 pinches of pepper. Let ingredients simmer for 10 minutes then add the green shallots.
On the side, boil 2 eggs and fry 4 pieces of bacon (yes, I have a bacon problem). Once all ingredients are added, taste the broth for flavor. Some foodies out there like more salt than I do, in that case add more if you wish.
Finally, pour the contents of the ramen broth and noodles into two bowls. Add the boiled egg and bacon to the top.
*HINT: When I have more time, I love making this recipe in a crock pot. The flavors build more naturally and the noodles almost melt in your mouth. If you have the time, add all fresh ingredients to your crock pot and place on ‘high’ for 2 hours. It will be worth it!
