TikTok Ramen has got everyone and their mom turning simple noodle packets into fancy meals, and guess what? I jumped on that bandwagon too!

It’s wild how a packet of noodles isn’t just a quick fix anymore. Now, it’s like a mini adventure in my kitchen. Instead of just boiling water and tossing in the noodles, I’m over here playing chef, melting butter, frying up some garlic, and throwing in a bunch of spices that make the kitchen smell amazing.

And when I crack an egg into it? Chef’s kiss! It turns into this yummy dish that looks so good, you gotta snap a pic for the ‘gram. It’s super fun turning something so basic into a dish that makes you feel kinda fancy.

Ingredients You’ll Need (+ Possible Substitutes)

Alright, let’s dive into making those noodles something special, and yes, I’m all about turning them into a dish you’d brag about. Here’s what you’re gonna need, and hey, if you’re missing something, I’ve got your back with some quick swaps.

  • Instant Ramen (I’m partial to Nong Shim or Samyang myself): Can’t get your hands on these? No sweat, any instant noodles you’re into will do just fine.
  • Butter & Minced Garlic: These two are the dream team for creating that rich, gotta-have-more flavor. Out of butter? Olive oil is your friend here, trust me.
  • Red Pepper Flakes & Brown Sugar: These babies add that kick and a kiss of sweetness. Run out? Try a sprinkle of chili powder and a dab of honey. You won’t regret it.
  • Soy Sauce & Everything Bagel Seasoning: They’re the secret sauce to that savory, crunchy magic. If soy sauce is a no-go, Tamari or coconut aminos slide right in, and any mixed seeds can step in for the seasoning.

With these in your culinary toolkit, you’re all set to give those noodles a glow-up that’ll have you slurping in style!

How To Make It

Alright, let’s get those plain noodles turned into something you’ll want to brag about. Here’s how we do it, step by step.

  • First off, cook the noodles like the back of the package tells you, but don’t drain all the water out. Leave a little so they don’t turn into a dry mess.
  • Next step, grab a pan and melt some butter in it. Throw in some chopped garlic and a dash of red pepper flakes for a bit of kick. Cook it until the garlic is soft and smells amazing.
  • Now, splash in a bit of soy sauce and a spoonful of brown sugar. Stir it all up until it’s all friendly with each other.
  • Time to get those noodles in the pan. Toss them around to make sure they get all cozy with that saucy mixture.
  • Make a little space in the pan and pour in a beaten egg. Scramble it right there in the mix, then stir everything together like they’re old friends.
  • To finish off, sprinkle some Everything Bagel Seasoning on top. And if you’re feeling a bit extra, throw some sliced scallion on there too before you dive in.

Tips For Success

After whipping up this super tasty ramen recipe a bunch of times, I’ve picked up some tricks to make sure it’s awesome every time you make it.

  • Quality matters: Grabbing a fancier brand of instant ramen really makes a difference. Think of it as the canvas you’re painting on.
  • Garlic patience: Cook the garlic low and slow in some butter. It makes everything smell amazing and taste so much better without any burnt bits.
  • Just the right heat: Keep that pan on a medium flame to get everything to come together perfectly. You don’t want mushy noodles or a rubbery egg, trust me.
  • Make it your own: Don’t be afraid to play around with the spices or throw in whatever veggies you love. It’s all about making it taste just right for you.

Hope these tips help you whip up a bowl of ramen that’s just as good, if not better, every single time!

Serving Suggestions

cooking and presentation advice

Want to make your TikTok ramen pop? Try these fun tips to turn your noodles into a flavor party.

First off, toss in a side of cool cucumber salad. It’s like a refreshing splash for your taste buds that balances out the spice.

And if you’re all about that spice life, a scoop of sriracha mayo on top will be your jam.

A little drizzle of toasted sesame oil before you dig in adds that chef’s kiss of nuttiness.

Feeling extra hungry? Plop a soft-boiled egg on top. That creamy yolk is like a hug for your spicy noodles.

Trust me, with these tweaks, your ramen goes from quick snack to full-on vibe.

Storing, Freezing & Reheating

Oh, the art of keeping your TikTok ramen tasting just as epic the next day (or month) isn’t rocket science, but it does need a little insider knowledge.

  • Storing 101: Slap it in a tight-sealed container and chuck it in the fridge if you’re hitting it again in a day or two. Trust me, it gets even better after a sleepover in the cold.
  • Freezing for the future: Got too much? No worries. Divide it into portions, pop it in freezer bags, and voila! You’re ready for those ‘can’t be bothered’ evenings.
  • Reheat like a pro: Thaw it in the fridge overnight, then warm it up on the stove slowly. A little splash of water works wonders to bring those noodles back to life.
  • Just say no to the microwave: Sure, it’s quick, but it’ll do your noodles dirty, making them soggy and hot in some spots, cold in others. Not the vibe we’re going for.

Keep it simple, and your ramen game will be strong, even on the reheating front.
