Several of you seemed surprised by my ramen consumption, so I figured I'd let you know how I make them and why it's one of my favorite dishes when dining alone. First I cook the package or ramen in it's broth in the microwave. While that's cooking, in another bowl, I beat two eggs, a spoonful of peanut butter, a spoonful of chili sauce, and a splash of soy sauce. If I have some garlic or hot peppers sitting around I'll throw them in too. Then I drain the noodles, toss them in the egg mixture, and fry the whole mess up in a little peanut oil. It only takes five minutes to make and is so satisfying, especially after a night of drinking.

interesting. do you do anything with the so-called "flavor packet", or does that see the trash?

I use that in the water I cook the noodles in, but most of it goes away when I drain the noodles.

It's not so bad cholesterol-wise. Now, sodium is another story.

Yup, the cheapo four for a dollar bricks.

you lost me at microwave, then had me back at eggs and peanut butter. If you ditched the flavor packet that it comes with this would be not weird at all.
but this is also coming from someone who eats fancified annies bunny shaped macaroni and cheese when she's sad.

I often get ramen cravings. But that peanut butter business, eww.

That sounds pretty tasty. I may have to try it. Thanks! :)

For the record, you should hop over to your nearest Korean market and buy ramen there. Korean ramen (pronounced "ram-yun" in Korea) is much tastier and much spicier than the bland Americanized shite you get at the supermarket.

The amount of sodium's about the same, unfortunately.
