Surf and Turf Ramen Recipe

Surf and Turf Ramen Recipe

There was a time, long ago, that ramen noodles were a regular part of my diet. I’m pretty sure that I am not alone in that regard. When my daughter was little, these were a go-to meal for her. She would pop the noodles in a bowl, cover them with water and throw them in the microwave. Then she would drain the water off and add the flavor packet. Yuck! A bad habit she picked up from my wife and part of the reason I do the cooking for the most part. I needed a ramen recipe with enough stuff in it to make a real meal and I needed it to be simple.

You have a couple of options here which I’ll cover briefly but make sure you read the recipe notes below. First is the shrimp. I like to pan fry them for one minute on each side. It’s not needed but just my preference. The ending texture is a little different and the shrimp flavor isn’t as strong to me. If you fry the shrimp, don’t add them to the pot until the end of the 3-minute boil. Second is the beef. I have used leftover steak and roast. I’ve even used deli roast beef. All variations yielded great results so experiment.

As far as vegetables go, there are plenty of freezer blends available for your ramen recipe. You may also find some fresh blends at the market if that is important to you. Sometimes I’ll add thinly sliced fresh mushroom as a garnish in the end. Play with it because the rules are loose here. Also, if you haven’t used sesame oil before, use it sparingly. It is very strong.
