A Spoonful of Sofrito: Making Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup
A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life!
Making Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup
As much as I try to be healthy and avoid packaged foods, I can't help but love Ramen and Ramyun. For those who aren't in the know, Ramyun is Korean style Ramen. I find Ramyun flavors a bit more interesting than the Japanese ramen. Also, the serving size is larger than Japanese ramen as well.
Ramyun is extremely versatile; you can add vegetables, meat, eggs, and other spices to doctor it up. When I'm feeling adventurous, I add frozen veggies, thin-sliced onions, and pre-cooked chicken or fish. Most times, I keep it simple and add spinach.
Here is my sure fire way to prepare a simple, delicious, and fun Ramyun!
1. Get your ingredients together: Ramyun packet, soup bowl, spinach, and 2 1/3 cups of water.
2. Open your Ramyun packet and make sure it contains: Noodles, a vegetable packet, and a flavor packet.
3. Heat the water (medium-high heat) in a pot until it boils.
4. Add the noodles to the boiling water and stir for a minute.
5. After a minute, add the flavor packet, vegetable packet, spinach, and cook for 3-4 minutes more. If you're adding frozen vegetables, pre-cooked meats, or raw vegetables, then cook a few minutes longer.
6. Once your Ramyun is cooked, then serve it in a soup bowl and enjoy! Slurp away folks! Now that you know how to make some delicious Ramyun, go taste for yourself! ¡Buen provecho!
