  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 5 tablespoons chicken stock

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • ½ teaspoon chili oil (Optional)

  • 2 (3 ounce) packages ramen noodles

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • ½ cucumber, julienned

  • 1 carrot, grated

  • 1 slice cooked ham, cut into thin strips

  • ¼ sheet nori, cut into thin slices

  • 1 tablespoon hot Chinese mustard (Optional)


  1. Mix the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, chicken stock, sesame oil, and chili oil together in a small bowl, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Set aside.

  2. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the ramen noodles and cook for 2 minutes. Drain immediately, and refrigerate noodles until cold. Meanwhile, heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the beaten egg and tilt the pan to thinly coat the bottom with egg. When firm, fold the egg in half and remove from the pan. Slice into thin strips.

  3. To serve, place cold noodles on serving plates. Top with separate piles of egg, cucumber, carrot, and ham. Pour the sauce over the top and sprinkle with crumbled nori. Serve with a touch of hot mustard on the side.
