I Made a Ramen Burger...Sort Of

Step 7.

But be careful, it gets messy.

Things I would do differently next time:

  • Use two eggs to hold the noodles together. One egg wasn't quite enough.

  • Try fresh ramen instead of instant.

  • Actually make a beef burger.

  • Invest in pickles, onions, sriracha and something green that's not kale.

  • Cook the ramen patties longer.

My attempt at ramen burger making was a bit of a learning experience, but I get why people are so crazy for them. That fried egg and ramen mixture is actually pretty yummy.

OK, your turn. Show me what you got, Houston!

This post is so August, 2013 that it makes me want to puke.  The current rage among burgers is not on pretzel buns, or ramen noodle buns, but on cronut buns. Of course you'll need the input of your cicerone as to which beer would pair best.  I prefer Duvel or Westvleteren 12, but that's just me.


Very nice, but doesn't go far enough. Here's what I would do. For the patty, pan fry some spam until you get a good crust. top with a fried egg (over hard), kimchi (cabbage and/or cucumber), sauteed mushrooms and scallions. Lightly season the egg with the ramen instant soup powder. If you need a spread, make a mayo-sriracha combination.

The vine video posted on youtube is interesting. Not sure I'm into the concept of the noodle burger. Close up shot of the patty meat was…interesting. Love your effort though! Enjoyable to read.


Never heard of this thing but seems interesting

@FattyFatBastard If you read the post, it says "I was in the mood for some fake meat." Does that answer your question?

@KaitlinS I read the post.  My point is that your first attempt to make something (especially if you're trying to review it) should try to be as close to the original as possible.  If the copycat is stellar, THEN add or substitute other ingredients, and review those results, as well.

@KaitlinS @gossamersixteen I used the teri-burger mix from Noh  foods (Hawaiian) with ground sirloin , used a smidge of corn starch in the egg as a binder and viola perfection. I also added gochuchang and grilled green onions but that's me Korean-fying your recipe. Perfect with a tomato from the back yard, and some thinly sliced yellow pepper.
