My husband came home one day craving for ramen! Lucky me, I had a pack of noodles which I easily transformed in ramen!
Here’s my recipe:
- 1 pork steak and 1 beef steak
- 2 packs of noodles (150 gr each)
- onions (if you want)
- butter, olive oil, soy sauce
- salt, pepper, cumin, basil, chilli flakes
- wok (pan)
- pot for boiling noodles
- bowl to serve
How I did it
Prep the steaks and the noodles Take the steaks, wash them and get rid of the extra amount of fat on the pork steak. 😉 Also, on the pork steak I gently "draw" 3 fine cuts so that the juice and flavours get inside the steaks easily! Season the steaks with salt, pepper, cumin, a bit of chilli flakes. Heat the wok (or pan) and then drop 1 tablespoon of olive oil in there! 40 seconds after, drop the steaks and on top of them add some butter! These will give the steaks a very juicy flavour and a softer texture especially to the beef one. For the noodles, I said it's "ramen with a twist" because the noodles I used are not ramen noodles but can be treated the same! I filled the kettle with water and let to boil. Once boiled i dropped the heated water in the pot and added salt. 30 seconds after, i added the noodles packs (x2). Let the finish boiling for another 10-12 minutes, medium heat. Easy peasy!
Cook the steaks I recommend cooking the 2 steaks in separate pans or one after another not in the same pan / wok. So that the pork and beef flavours stay unmixed. I cooked the beef steak on both sides for about 3.5 minutes each side. And the pork steak a bit longer, about 5 minutes each side. Then, get the out and let rest for 3 minutes before cutting in slices.
Cook the veggies and noodles In the same sauce steak sauce I dropped the peppers, onions, kale, mushroom. And I garnished the beef steak with the mushroom + kale and the pork steak with peppers + onions. On top of each pair of vegetables, i added noodles. This is when I amplified the flavour with soy sauce and basil. Leave to stir for another 7-10 minutes. Don't be afraid to bring up the heat!
Ramen noodles x 2! 10 minutes later, it's ready to be served! Take a bowl, add noodles and the vegetables: noodles with peppers and onions in a bowl and the noodles with mushroom and kale into a different bowl. Don't forget to drop the sauce from the wok/pan on top! Then add the meat slices: pork slices in the first bowl, beef slices in the second. Voila, brunch is served! Ramen with a twist!
