Tips on Making Beef Ramen

Making homemade ramen can be quite tricky when you’re not familiar with its process. The rich and savory taste of beef soup or broth is important. That’s why we listed some helpful cooking tips on how to make ramen better and even more delicious.

 

  • Use ramen noodles instead of egg noodles if it’s available to you. Egg noodles might be cheaper and easier to find in most places, but we suggest going with wheat ramen noodles if you have one. While we usually season egg noodles with salt as we cook them, we don’t have to do the same for ramen noodles as they already have their own flavoring. It’s traditionally made with wheat and alkaline salts which contributes an added layer of unique flavor.
  • Add in chili oil or chili powder for spice. For a spicy beef ramen twist, you can use garlic chili oil, chili powder, or Sriracha. Add in a tablespoon of your preferred spicy sauce, then mix well into the broth. Feel free to adjust the spice level to your liking.
  • Finish it off with traditional ramen toppings. There are a lot of ramen toppings that you can add to your ramen so that it will taste even better. Add in some nori (dried seaweed), ajitama (flavored egg), kamaboko (steamed fish cake), chopped spring onions, or some sesame seeds.

Ingredients

  • 14 oz beef flank
  • ½ lb Asian egg noodles, cooked and cooled
  • oz ginger, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 oz spring onions, sliced, greens and whites separated
  • qt beef broth, (5 cups)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 360 degrees F and grease a baking sheet.

  4. Transfer it into your baking sheet and roast it in the oven for roughly 8 minutes (medium doneness) or up to your desired doneness.

  9. Adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper then stir.

  10. Portion your noodle soup into serving bowls, serve with 2 ounces of your beef strips and 1 tablespoon of the green parts of the spring onions, and serve immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of beef is used in ramen?

The best kind of beef to use is either a beef flank steak or sirloin steak. These parts are usually the most tender parts of the cow. It’s also perfect for cooking over high heat. It also tastes best in this dish since it’s tender and flavorful, especially when it’s cut into thin lean slices. So, if you’re wondering what to add to ramen to make it even more delicious, add in these beef cuts to achieve a richer dish.

Why are my egg noodles soggy?

It may be because your noodles absorb too much water while boiling. Or maybe you added the noodles in your soup too soon. There are ways to prevent this. The first one is to undercook the egg noodles by 1 to 2 minutes. Since egg noodles are combined with the hot broth, it’s possible for the noodles to be overcooked when it stays in the soup for long. Another solution is to immediately drain the noodles. Then, rinse them under running cold water so it doesn’t continue to cook.
