Quick and easy meals are something we love. Cheap, quick, and easy meals are a staple for almost every household. This recipe is all three. This isn’t your standard packaged ramen with a spice pack. This ramen is souped up with real Asian ingredients like sriracha, sesame, and soy. It’s got a soft boiled egg in there for some protein, and some greens for color, and you know, the good green stuff. These noodles are spicy and delicious.
Is this recipe spicy? How can I make it more/less spicy?
Yes, this recipe is quite spicy as written. If you want to up the heat to the level of “burn your face off” you’ll want to double the amount of sriracha in this recipe. If you are looking to tone it down, try cutting the amount of sriracha sauce in half, or even down to a quarter. At even 1 teaspoon of sriracha, you’ll still get the flavor of the sriracha with a much more tolerable level of heat.
Where do I buy ramen noodles? Can you just use the cheap packages of ramen?
You can find packages of ramen noodles in the Asian section of your supermarket or at your local Asian grocer. You can also use packaged ramen noodles like Top Ramen that are usually sold for somewhere around 10 cents. Just discard the spice pack. Alternately, you can purchase soba noodles which are very similar and cook quickly.
