Does anybody know a reliable technique for making ramen in the microwave? I like the noodles slightly firm with all the water dumped off.
I must urge you to add soy sauce and tuna to whatever ramen concoction you come up with.
the pure noodle goodness of plain salty ramen.
You'll be happy you did!
It's like a giant cracker...
I guess you are what you eat.
I thought cup o noodles was better for you, since it tastes worse. I just bought one of each and lo and behold, they're both equally bad for you. 14 grams of fat in each (full brick of ramen, I don't know anyone who eats only eats half of one) and over 1000 grams of sodium and plenty of msg. Although the cup o noodles has 25% of drv of Iron and less calories than ramen. sooo, I guess the cup is a wee bit better for you. I think ramen is cheaper though, so it will ultimately win.
and I just realized it's Cup Noodles. There is no o. It's also "Much More Than A Soup". Ramen makes no such claims.
I tried some fat-free low-sodium ramen the other day (can't remember the name, but I have another pack. It's made in California.) It was only slightly less delicious than regular ramen but it was also 49¢ a pack. The noodles were sort of flattened and it came in a round cake that fit my saucepan precisely. Maybe I'll move to that stuff.
I also tried Yakisoba brand homestyle Japanese noodles the other day. They come in a tray so you can make them in the microwave. Igot the teriyaki flavor, which was pretty good but a little sweet. It also came with a dehydrated vegetable pack that I didn't even open. Cabbage, carrots, corn. Nobody wants corn in his ramen.
9 servings. loads of sodium. who eats a pickle in 9 separate sessions?
I wonder where the o came from? I googled and as of yet have no answer.
mandrake. i'll let you know how it turns out.
I must not have followed the instructions correctly. The noodles were gone when I opened the microwave. And I burnt myself.
I broke the ramen in half so it would fit the tall way in my 3-D Incredible Hulk (featuring the Abomination) Slurpee cup. Then I filled it to just covering the ramen and zapped it for four minutes. When it was done, I dumped off the water immediately and... perfection.
microwave for 3:40 and dump the water off immediately.
