Ramen might not be a five-star meal, but when you are balling on a budget it could be the best dinner option out there. These TikTokers are showing how to upgrade your ramen skills to impress anyone, even Gordon Ramsey.
The Creamiest Ramen You’ll Ever Taste!
This ramen involves using evaporated cream, lime, and mayo to get a delicious cream. Mixed in is also a packet of chili sauce, so there will also be a nice little kick.
That said, the magic really happens when the egg is cracked and placed into the noodles after it’s taken off the stove. The egg cooks in the warm noodles to make the sauce extra creamy and rich. Great tip!
Sauce It Up!
This ramen hack is all about the sauce! Another egg is used, but this time it’s mixed in before the noodles are cooked.
Essentially, the egg is the base — the sauce packets, mayo, and garlic are mixed in later to accentuate the meal.
Once the noodles are cooked, a little Master-Chef-moment is made when the sauce is cooked by adding the boiling pasta water a bit at a time.
Sweet and Spicy Ramen
Dark sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes combine in the pan to make the perfect combination of sweetness and spiciness.
The best thing about this dish is that the egg was fried in the same pan as the noodles — talk about multi-tasking!
You can make it spicier or sweeter according to your liking — but I’ll have mine with a lot of kick!
Viral For A Reason!
This concoction is a step up from the rest of the videos, with a new ingredient being introduced: kimchi.
The vinegary kimchi, paired with oodles of sriracha, will have your taste-buds dancing. They’re probably dancing just watching this insane video!
Now, not only does this dish look delicious, but it is also presented with that 5-star quality! The shredded nori on top adds nice color and flavor.
The best thing about these ramen hacks is that you can customize them any way you like! From spicy to sweet to garlicky to eggy — any way you want it, that’s the way you get it!
Oh, and you get to save a load of money in the meantime — the ultimate win-win!
