Ramen Noodles made so much better!
We've all eaten the instant package of Ramen Noodles. But did you know that Ramen Noodles are a type of Asian Noodles? Well, they are.
The instant packages gained popularity throughout Asia and North America. But traditionally, a Ramen Noodle is a thin curly noodle made fresh.
We’ve all eaten Ramen noodles with the seasoning packet provided. It tends to leave me feeling as if I’m on a salt overload and never really tasting like the packet defines.
So throw away the packet and and follow the directions below to make a delicious pot of Asian Noodles.
These Asian Noodles can be made in 5 minutes in the Instant Pot or 10 Minutes on the Stove.
The flavor is amazing. My picky eater couldn’t even respond when I asked him if he liked them.
His mouth was full of noodles but his smile said it all!
Noodles are a stable ingredient in Chinese culture. Depending on region the noodles vary in thickness but the overall flavors seem to stay the same or at least similar.

These quick and easy Asian Noodles use Ramen Noodles, a thin noodle package popular in the US. Not exactly healthy, but many of college students have survived eating them!
After playing with this recipe for Asian Noodles to perfect it, my taste tester.. AKA my picky eater son, asked how he could make them and if they were “hard to make”.
The great news is NO! They aren't hard to make. They cook in Zero (0) minutes in the Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker.
And taking the time to teach him how to put the simple ingredients together is priceless, don't you think?

I love the easiness of using packaged Ramen noodles! Just a little note.....DO NOT throw away the broth packet. I use them all the time. If I am short on chicken broth for a recipe I use one of these packets...soup etc. They actually have more flavor than the powdered chicken bouillon you buy in the small jars.
These came out perfect!
Hey Linda, so glad you enjoyed the Ramen Pad Thai noodles. They are so easy and fun to make.
Is the measurement for minced garlic or garlic powder?
I always use minced garlic. hope that helps!
I LOVE noodles! Thank you for sharing this I am totally going to maek some now.
You are welcome Karen. My son loves to make this for an after school snack. Super easy to make and still full of great flavor.
Wow, I am craving these now. What a simple and delicious meal! I love this 🙂
It's simple for sure, but don't let that fool you. The flavors are excellent!
I love Ramen noodles. I wish they were healthier than they are. But they are great in a pinch.
Ramen noodles are great in a pinch for sure! You can change up this recipe and use Udon noodles too if you like.
This is genius!! I can't wait to try it!
Sometimes those simple packages can make really great dishes!
Looks so easy! I never think to cook with the Ramen noodles, will need to try!
I love how easy these are to make and you would never know they are Ramen Noodles. So full of great flavors
My kids would love these, and I love how quickly this meal comes together. I like the idea of adding chicken and some veggies to make it a more rounded meal.
My boys have really enjoyed this recipe for sure...and adding veggies and rounding it out is one way to get them to eat more greens. 😉
Now I'm super convinced that I need an instant pot!! I don't know why but you made cooking ramen noodles look so different (and yummy)! Not to mention I've been craving Asian food!
You NEED an instant pot Michelle! I love both of mine and use them often!
