Stir Fried Garlic Ramen Noodles

Stir Fried Garlic Ramen Noodles

This is a super cheap recipe and easy meal or side dish recipe, a very welcome change from traditional ramen… Stir Fried Garlic Ramen Noodles!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a big bowl of ramen noodles served the way they were intended to be (well, except maybe the sodium content 😉 ).

But this recipe mixes things up by stir frying the noodles.

And jazzing up the flavor a bit with ingredients you probably have laying around anyway.

It’s a great vegetarian meal, or you can add protein of choice like chicken or shrimp if you’d like.

How to make Stir Fried Garlic Ramen Noodles

First boil 3 packs of ramen noodles, but throw away the flavor pack.

When draining the noodles rinse very well with cold water to prevent them from becoming mushy.

Then set a large skillet or wok over medium high heat and add some vegetable oil and a diced onion.

Cook the onion for a few minutes, then add lots of freshly minced garlic.

Next add the cooked noodles, teriyaki or hoisin sauce, soy sauce, butter, and 2 eggs.

Mix this together in the skillet or wok for a few minutes.

And add some freshly chopped cilantro or green onions.

Cook for a few more minutes in the skillet or wok.

Remove when the noodles are cooked the way you prefer.

I cooked mine on the longer side because I liked how crispy the noodles got the longer they cooked.

I served this as a side dish with grilled Thai chicken skewers and it was a perfect combo!

You could also set out some yum yum sauce and sriracha to top these noodles.
