Ramen noodles

Postby housil » Fri Oct 17, 2014 3:43 pm

I read so many times about the "Ramen noodles" in your stores, being at Walmart bought me a bunch of as we Germans (Europeans ?) don´t know them :oops:

A "dish" for just $0.20... :shock:

436 kcal per 100g - that´s more than a MRE entree has

I like them and they are OK I guess for a quick meal.

How much do you guys like them?

Take a pack, Boil them in the water like it says, then drain the water and sprinkle the spice pack over the wet noodles. Better flavor, imho.

If you need more, let me know.

Wow!
Ramen is so common here that it never would have occurred to me that you might be unfamiliar with it in Germany.
Probably the best thing about Ramen is that it's so easy to "jump it up". You can toss in some of almost any kind of dried soup mix like Knorr or Lipton in addition, or in substitution, to the provided miso pack. You can add in dried Oriental shrimp or fish flakes. You can drain out most of the water and toss an egg... Just leave it on the heat and keep stirring... egg-drop Ramen.
You can break a package in half if you don't want as large a meal, and most amazingly... You can eat it dry spread with peanut butter! Seriously!

Oh... yeah... It also seems to have the half-life of yellowcake uranium.
It's perfect for your "power-outage bucket".

Olli,
That's is a poor man's meal. Here college students and people with limited funds use them to feed themselves. It has a long shelf life. the only problen is the spice pacakge which has a huge amount of sodium. :shock: :roll:
Is very versatile since you can add anything to make it a full blown meal. You can get a wholcase of those for less than $5. Also they sell what they call "noodles cup" which is a big styrofoam cup of those noodles with veggies.
My wife makes something called "Crunchy coleslaw in which they use the dry noodles as an ingredient for a coleslaw. :mrgreen:

I knew these noodles on from the Chinese food markets where you could buy them as "instant noodles" for Chinese dishes. Also I remember UK 10 x 24 ration cases had a similar dish too.

Since Japanese people loved ramen, instant noodles were born in Japan. :D

My kids eat them as quick after school snack sometimes. When my brother and I first moved into our own apartment we would use them as a base for boil in the bag meals. Such as Salisbury Steak and gravy or Turkey slices with gravy. My wife said she ate them in college and they did not add anything, just factory flavor packet. I have used them camping by pouring the hot water in a GLAD brand freezer bag. Then added a small tin of canned chicken potted meat and a packet of dried powdered cheese. Let it stand for five minutes and eat It was a super cheap easy to prepare river bank/camping meal.There are many different brands sold at the Asian Market. Some from China,Japan, South Korea and they have great variety in taste. I have lately been using the made in Japan soft noddle with dried vegetables and liquid flavor pouch. These meals are high quality and still have a low price

Nort- post a photo of the "Japan soft noodle" if you could. Sounds good.
I also use the three packs of Soba Noodles. They are soft as well and come with the flavor packet like the Ramen. However, they're much, much thicker noodles and are made from rice flour, so the texture and flavor is very different from Ramen.... The problem with them is that they have to be refrigerated. But because they are vacuum packed, once they're in the fridge they'll keep for months.
I wouldn't want to use them for more than a two day hike though. A day outing... they're perfectly fine.
