How Long Do You Cook Ramen Noodles?

Bring 2½ cups of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the noodles and cook for 2 minutes. Add the flavor packet, stir, and continue to cook for another 30 seconds.
  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a pot.
  2. Add dry noodles into the pot, breaking up as soften.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from heat. Add 2 Tablespoons of ramen soup base, stir it well.
  5. Transfer into the serving bowl. Add garnishes as desired.

The hours of ramen restaurants began to be shortened, and some even closed their doors.

Imagine for a moment eating delicious shio ramen with your favorite ramen toppings for dinner.

Without the proper tools and equipment, making restaurant-quality noodles at home is almost impossible.

Using Raoh’s shoyu flavour will help you achieve this easily. This is top-notch ramen hands down!.

One pinnacle of instant noodles is the soy sauce flavor. It is pricey compared to standard ones, but believe me when I say that it is worth every single penny.


Aside from your dependable microwave oven, of course, microwave ramen only requires two simple ingredients. They are available online and in almost every grocery store:

Use any brand of ramen or ramen noodle soup. Any instant noodle is fine, but we typically purchase Maruchan or Top Ramen.

You can also use chicken broth, beef broth, or vegetable broth in place of water. Whenever I make ramen stir-fries or soup, I like to use broth.

You will need a microwaveable bowl to cook the ramen. Since the bowl gets hot, I also advise using hot mitts, oven mitts, or pot holders to keep your hands safe.

You don’t create as much garbage with bagged noodles

You will produce a lot of waste if you eat the instant noodles in the container that they come in.

The container, the lid, and a disposable spoon or chopsticks.

But bagged instant ramen doesn’t have them.

So it is more eco-friendly in comparison.


Again, removing the seasoning packet and replacing it with your own preferred flavors is the best way to upgrade instant ramen.

To the noodles, we like to add a little bit of butter and olive oil. We also include a small amount of Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Add some soy sauce, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, onion powder, and rice vinegar to the noodles if you want some Asian flavors. For more umami flavor, you can also include finely chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

However, you can really include anything you like, including hot sauce, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, Spam, bean sprouts, and soft-boiled eggs.

You may have seen Kylie Jenner’s well-known ramen recipe on social media, in which she cooks her ramen in a small saucepan with an egg that has been beaten raw. The egg won’t properly cook in the microwave, so this won’t work.

However, if you choose to do this, feel free to cook the egg separately and top the microwave noodles with it.
