Hey there! If you love Ramen and/or looking for a pretty easy recipe, you come to the right place! This is both! I’ve made this a few times for my family and by request I am making it again tonight. One daughter has a craving for it, the hubby has a sore throat and agreed that ramen sounded good. The oldest daughter just loves food, so naturally our “Trunchcake”, is stoked that I am making it too. (really, she is just happy that I am a mom that makes dinner most nights!) As for the little man that runs the house, he will go one way or the other with what I make. Depends if I make what he is going to eat that day. I never know. And as soon as I think I know, I don’t! #lifewithatoddler
A couple things to note before you make or buy the ingredients. It can taste a little salty. Make sure you buy/use low sodium soy sauce. And if you double the recipe, don’t double the oyster or fish sauce right away. You can always add more. And worst case, if it is too salty, make or add more broth. The other thing is make your ramen separately according to package directions, drain and set aside. When ready, put the ramen in the bottom of the bowl, then pour your soup over it. And if you’ve made enough to have leftovers, store the noodles separately also. This will prevent them from getting mushy.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!! Let me know if you make it and what you think!

- 1 tbsp Oil
- 1 Onion, diced
- 1 tbsp Fresh grated Ginger Root
- 4 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp Chili Garlic Sauce Can substitute Sriracha Sauce
- 2 tbsp Oyster Sauce can substitute Hoisin Sauce
- 1 tbsp Fish Sauce
- 1/2 cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
- 5 oz Shiitake mushrooms regular mushrooms work too
- 4 Baby Bok Choy, sliced lenghtwise substitute spinach
- 4 cups Broth, chicken or beef depending on your meat
- 1 cup Water
- 1-2 packets Ramen Noodles Cook according to package directions
- In a large pot, sauté onion until soft (about 5 min)
- Add in mushrooms and cook about 3 min.
- Then add in the garlic and ginger. Stir in and cook about 1 min. Just until fragrant. Do not let it burn.
- Add the broth, water, soy sauce, vinegar, oyster sauce, fish sauce, garlic sauce. Stir and simmer.
- I slice my chicken or beef, depending on which I am adding, and cook it in a separate pan. Cook it until right before it is done. Remove from pan and slice thinly then add it to the broth pot. Will finish cooking in the broth.
- Boil water and prepare noodles according to package. Drain and set aside. Might need to add a little oil to keep it all from sticking together. I recommend not adding the noodles to the the soup. That way if you have left overs the noodles wont get mushy.
- While your boiling your noodles or once then are done, then you want to add the bok choy to the broth for about 5 min.
- Ready to server! Scoop noodles into bowl first, then add broth.
- Top with either cilantro, green onions, chili garlic sauce, lime wedge, sesame seeds.Enjoy!
