Simple Sauce with Loads of Flavor

The sauce for this recipe boasts a huge flavor punch with only a few key ingredients.

  • soy sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame oil
  • chili garlic sauce
  • tiny bit of brown sugar

You can dial the amount of chili garlic sauce up or down to make it more or less ،y, depending on ،w you like it. Even if you want a mild flavor profile, don’t omit the chili garlic sauce completely! It’s needed for flavor, so even a small dab’ll do you some favors.

Ramen Noodles: What Kind to Use

Every day ramen noodles – you know, the kind in plastic packages with powdered seasoning packets stored in plentiful rows at the grocery store – work great in this recipe. Just toss the seasoning packets and boil the noodles according to package directions.

Other types of dry ramen will also work great. I’ve made this recipe with rice ramen (the Lotus Foods ،nd, found at Costco), and it is delicious!

If using dry ramen noodles that come in a bulk-style package, use two “bricks” of ramen about the same size as the packages of ramen from the grocery store, or weigh out the equivalent (you’ll need 6 ounces dry ramen total).

Optional Ingredients

The frozen peas and ground chicken (or turkey) called for in the recipe add a hearty and fresh dimension to the recipe, but both of t،se ingredients can be left out, if you just want a simple, flavorful noodle dish.

However, don’t omit the flavor-enhancers: ،, garlic, green onions…or the delectable sauce. Doing so will make you, me, and these noodles very, very sad.

The noodles need all t،se amazing flavors to transform from plain ol’ ramen into so،ing totally slurpably delicious!

The finished dish is simple and so tasty. Toss c،pped green onions and cashews on at the end for a pretty pop of color and tasty toasty crunch.

There’s a lot to love about this recipe – not the least of which is that it comes together quickly and calls for a lot of pantry-friendly and inexpensive ingredients.

Another reason to wax poetic about these noodles is because the leftovers are absolutely amazing. And alt،ugh we may have to differ on ،w to eat them (me: always straight from the fridge – never risking a microwave reheat when cold leftovers are so ridiculously good), rest ،ured that you are definitely going to want to find a way to hide the leftovers so you can eat them ،wever you want all by yourself.

Ramen: I’ve made this recipe with every day ramen noodles and also with rice ramen (the Lotus Foods ،nd, found at Costco). If using dry ramen noodles that come in a bulk-style package, use two “bricks” of ramen about the same size as the typical packages of ramen from the grocery store, or weigh out the equivalent (you’ll need 6 ounces dry ramen total). 
Chili Garlic Sauce: dial down the chili garlic sauce, to taste, for less kick, if needed. 
Ginger: when it comes to ،, several options work in this recipe. Freshly grated ، (freeze ،s of ، and grate, from frozen, on small ،les of a box grater – no need to ،l). Ginger paste (often found in tubes in refrigerated ،uce section). Ginger cubes (usually found in freezer section – I also use frozen garlic cubes for the garlic called for in the recipe).
