So in honour of Taron and his birthday, here is the recipe for ramyun:
The time you need: 7 mins
The things you need:
- Shin Ramyun package (In my humble opinion, and my yobo’s expert opinion, it is the most delicious of the ramyuns)
- 2 1/4 cups of water
- 1 egg
- a handful rice cakes (optional)
- green onion
The how to:
- Bring the water to a boil
- Add the seasoning package and the veggie package along with the noodles (there is much debate in our home whether to break the noodles or not…. to break or not to break, that is the question!)
- Add an egg (we enjoy our egg whole, if you prefer to have it scrambled, mix it around once it has been dropped in the soup)
- Add the rice cakes (they are Taron’s favourite add-in)
- Cook for 4 minutes. Do not overcook! Over done ramyun noodles are not yummy!
- Add onions in the last minutes
- Serve with rice and kimchi
Note: though Taron does like spicy ramyun, he also enjoys it made with Mr. Noodles!
