I am talking about those crappy $.25 packets. I have used them in so many ways it is insane! I mean insane! They get cooked into stir fry's, soup, appetizer, fried noodle balls, just noodles, super ghetto gormet in total. I even had a Top Ramen cookoff and the winner did a coconut shrimp recipe that was awesome! What have you used them for?

Tonight, I am using them in the traditional way. Soup.



I like it with some of this:



and a little bit of this:



The Sriracha sauce is soooooo good in it. Adds spice and flavor in ways I can't explain. The soy sauce is just adding salt and a little flavor, but mainly salt (as if there wasn't enough).

What do you do with your packet?


*Mods, if this isn't the right place for this thread, then move to appropriate area. I am druck, but this is a lifestyle choice, not a rambling

I'll break them up a bit on a big plate, sprinkle some of the seasoning on them and eat them uncooked for a salty snack.

Okay, time to blow some peoples faces off. I lived on this my sophomore year of college before I realized it's not to expensive to get good food (plus, all my money was going towards beer!)

1) Make ramen on the stove in boiling water, leaving the noddles whole (semi-important. You can break it in half if you wish.)

2) When noodles are soft, drain out all but a tiny bit of water

3) Add spice packet and mix slightly, using the water you left over to help spread it

4) Put it back on the heat and crack an egg into that mofo!

5) Stir and stir and stir and........... until the egg appears to have scrambled onto the noodles

6) Add Cock sauce (Matt, I had no idea it actually had a name! Most people I know call Sriracha Cock Sauce due to the rooster)

7) ....

8) Profit

Seriously, try it. It's delicious

I....love....you...

I always call it the Rooster Sauce, but started calling it the Sriracha Sauce when I couldn't find it in the normal bottle and had to know the name. Now I come to find out that like Soy Sauce, if you call it Kikoman then you are only half right...so to speak.

Reno, I grew up in Quincy. So if you are really Reno, you and I know some of the same folks. Srsly

ahahahh, I'm the only person I know that calls it Cock Sauce. awsome to hear that I'm not alone.

When I was in high school my parents went on a crazy diet and tried to get my sister and I to eat the nothing sprouts they were. we refused and demanded an allowance for food. I think I got ten bucks a week. I soon realized that I could buy a case of ramen for three bucks.

I used to just eat it raw too.....

I do eat ramen these days, but I prefer the higher end stuff. I used to live next to a couple of asian stores and one had an entire isle of ramen. (and live frogs, turtles, quarts of blood, assorted intestines and other crazy sh*t) Before I lived next to that place, I had no idea that there was quality ramen.

I also like to add an egg and some green onions. Usually I just eat it plain. well, with hot sauce....

I add egg to mine too, but only half of the powder mix (to reduce the salt intake).

I also add sliced garlic.

I will also add some hot sauce for flavor, but not the vinegary type from the south. I'm not into vinegary BBQ sauce.

I was born in Hawaii. I use ramen as a base to make a close approximation to Saimin. It's not quite the same and you can't really get Saimin on the mainland, but it's as close as I can get to the real thing.

When I really fancy up the soup, I will add sliced garlic into the water from the beginning and then a dose of frozen "stir fry" veges right at the end.

A perrennial favorite though is sliced garlic and ginger and at the end add some frozen corn and peas, Rooster sauce and some sesame seeds, black pepper and granulated garlic.

When I eat ramen I usually add an egg, hot sauce, and whatever spiced I can find. It makes a hell of a mess. I know because I usually spill it.

Seems that everyone makes it with egg. Sounds good, I have never done that before.
