Ingredients for Creamy Egg Ramen Recipe
Here are some of the essential ingredients you will need to make creamy egg ramen:
Noodles: Shin Ramyun noodles. You can substitute it with any other type of instant noodles if you prefer.
Seasoning: Salt and pepper to taste.
Cream: I am using light cream for this recipe. If you prefer more creamier, you can use heavy cream.
Egg and green onions for garnishing.
Water to boil noodles and broth.
#1. Add water to a pot and bring it to a boil. Add seasoning packet and give it a quick stir to dissolve all the flavors.
#2. Next, pour cream into the pot and mix it up until it’s all combined. This is what gives the broth such a rich, velvety texture. Then, add noodles and stir them well. Let the noodles cook for a few minutes.
#3. Once the broth starts simmering, crack an egg right into the pot. I like to swirl it around gently so the egg ribbons throughout.
#4. Once everything is looking well mixed, taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Finally, top it off with some sliced green onion.
Creamy egg ramen is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed in different ways. Here are some serving suggestions:
Garnishing your creamy egg ramen with sesame seeds adds an extra flavor. It adds a nutty crunch. Sprinkle them on top of your ramen before serving.
Add some veggies
You can also add some vegetables to your creamy egg ramen to make it a more complete meal. Some good options include sliced mushrooms, bok choy, or spinach. Sauté the veggies in a pan with some oil and garlic, and add them to your ramen before serving.
Serve with a side of kimchi
Kimchi is a spicy, fermented Korean side dish that pairs perfectly with creamy egg ramen. It adds a tangy, umami flavor that complements the richness of the broth.
Pair with a cold drinks
Last but not least, creamy egg ramen is the perfect dish to enjoy with a cold drink, especially beer. The refreshing, bubbly taste of the beer cuts through the richness of the broth and noodles, making for a satisfying and delicious meal.
I prefer to eat it fresh, but If you have any leftover creamy egg ramen, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
However, keep in mind that the texture of the noodles may change slightly after being refrigerated.
To store your leftover ramen, transfer it to an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator. When reheating, it’s best to add a little bit of water or broth to the ramen to prevent it from drying out. You can also add some fresh toppings to give it a little extra flavor.
