This tasty noodle dish is the same one my mom used to make for me when I was growing up. It's definitely comfort food. You can alter it with adding your favorite meats and veggies.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a pan of water to a boil, and cook the ramen until tender, about 3 minutes. Plunge the noodles into cold water to stop the cooking, drain in a colander set in the sink, and drizzle the noodles with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Set aside.

  • Place the chicken strips in a bowl, and toss with olive oil, garlic salt, and black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shallots and garlic, and cook and stir until they start to turn brown. Add the cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms, and cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir in the ramen noodles, soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, and oyster sauce, mixing the noodles and sauces into the vegetables and chicken. Bring the mixture to a simmer, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve hot.

I am indonesian and this dish tastes really good and just like the original indonesian fried noodles. I left out salt since the sauce added the saltiness to the dish. I also reduced the amount of soy oyster and Indonesian sweet soy sauce ( a little bit less than 1/4 cup each ). I will definitely put this on my regular menu list. Read More

Followed the recipe except I used a two lb bag of fresh noodles from the Chinese grocery instead of 9 oz of ramen. The amount of soy saucy-ness was still a lot for a homestyle dish! It was about what you would expect in a restaurant. I also cooked the meat and the veggies separately so I could control how done everything got. Good dish very easy to make especially with a food processor doing the chopping and shredding. Just cut back on the sauce or up the noodles. Would be fine with other meats or tofu instead of chicken.

Fantastic! I also used garlic powder in place of the garlic salt. Also doubled the cabbage & used a bag of stir-fry veggies. We all loved it! Read More

This is an easy yummy recipe. I didn't have shallots broccoli or mushrooms so I used extra carrots and cabbage and added a bag of frozen stir-vegetables. I also left out the oyster sauce. I would definitely say that this recipe doesn't need any added salt though. The soy sauce makes it plenty salty. This recipe is really easy and tastes great! Read More

Awesome recipe! Thank you for posting it. I am a little sqeemish when it comes to fish sauces or oyster sauce, so as an FYI for anyone wondering what they could substitute the oyster sauce with: 1) Look for a vegetarian "oyster" sauce - not a single oyster in it, but still mocks the flavor of it 2) Do a mixture of one part hoisin, two parts teriyaki and 2-3 dashes of worchestire. Some garlic and onion wouldn't hurt either if you wish For this recipe the ratio for 1/4C (4 TBSP) would be: 3 TBSP Teriyaki, 1 TBSP Hoisin and 2-3 dashes of worchestire I have subbed both versions in this recipe with excellent results!

I would say 2 pkgs of noodles is plenty. Undercook them at first because you will be simmering them in the pan at the end. It was pretty good the first time around but I would definitely double the vegetables and make sure to cut the broccoli into smaller size florets so they're done at the same time as the rest of the vegetables.

My family couldn't stop raving about this meal. My husband asked for a glass of wine to refresh his palate after every delicious bite. I scaled the recipe to serve 3, but used 2 packages of noodles. I made my own Indonesian sweet soy sauce using 2 TBS soy to 3 TBS brown sugar, boiling it to a smooth syrup, then adding the oyster & soy sauce. I will have to make it again...and again! PS: a small 8oz of chicken breast is all that's needed to serve 3 people - sliced very thin, of course. With all the other vegetables & noodles, it was enough. This recipe is a winning budget recipe.

I was in Bali for 6 weeks on a surf trip. Ate this every morning for breakfast. I have tried this a few times but never came out like I wanted. This recipe is the closest I have found. It's really good. I think I over cooked the noodles a little. I used spinach instead of cabbage. Read More
