About this Recipe

WOW!  My boys have always grown up eating Ramen noodles with the packet seasoning.  Why didn’t I think of this sooner?  Asian Noodles with Garlic, Sesame and Soy are so much better than the packet seasoning mix that comes with Ramen Noodles.  Don’t ever use that packet again, and try this recipe.  It’s so worth it!

Ramen Noodles

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 make it yourself with much better flavorings.  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!

Asian Noodles

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”.  So, I showed him and we threw in some shredded chicken into this recipe.  BAM!  He had an instant meal and was thrilled.  

The possibilities are endless with these simple seasonings, something we will be building on for sure.
