Cheap and easy alternative to take out. Our kid loves ramen noodles, so this is a great way to make him eat his veggies without him even realizing it! You could make this with chicken, beef, or pork as well, just use the corresponding ramen soup flavor. I'm sure that a lot of people would also add sesame oil for more authentic flavor, but I find sesame oil overpowering (personal preference).

I loved it! I made it with 4 packs of noddles and only added 2 packs of the seasoning. It was still tasty and feed all 4 of us and more. I sure will make this again! Read More

If you take this for what it is a Ramen Noodle based faux Chinese it's really good! Despite everything in me wanting to saute the shrimp and veg in a little EVOO and garlic I stuck to the recipe since I'm the primary reviewer. I followed everything to a "T" though I did have to sub frozen broccoli for frozen mixed veggies when I realized we were out. This came together in NO time (less than 10 minutes for real) and used freezer/pantry staples. Four servings is definately a stretch though. It served two of us and I could have eaten some more. THANKS for the recipe Nugyar! Read More

Quick and easy! I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and broccoli was the only vegetable. My 15 year old loved it. Nice to do something different with ramen noodles.?? Read More

Sorry I really wanted to like this one I love lo mein I love ramen noodles but this one didn't taste like lo mein and the noodles would have been good for one person not the 4 listed as servings. I was embarrassed serving this to just my hubby so glad I didn't try it for company! Read More

I think this is a great quick way to use extra ingredients. Sure it tastes like amped up Ramen, but it has Ramen noodle packets as an ingredient what are you expecting. Read More
