What’s your guilty pleasure? For me, it is Shin Ramyun Instant Noodles, maggi goreng style. Actually, I like the soup version as well. This is probably the only instant noodle I eat, as I like that the spiciness of this noodle isn’t as mild as all the other instant noodle brand. And more importantly, I like the texture of the ramen noodle most.
Inspired by Maggi Goreng (also another of my guilty pleasure), I came up with this super easy recipe. This is a great way to jazz up common instant noodles, and it’s really delicious too! The recipe is completely versatile because you can add whatever you like to the mix. Beef slices, tofu cubes, scrambled eggs, or mushrooms just to name a few. Here I used fresh chicken breast and kimchi, then topped it with a gorgeous over easy fried egg.
Writing this post is not helping with my diet at all. I’m getting really hungry, and craving for a bowl of stir-fried korean ramyun!! I shall stop writing about the dish, and leave you with the recipe before I cave. Enjoy!
