Ramen Chow Mein w/ Pulled Pork (Crispy Pan-Fried Noodles from Ramen!)
Updated: Aug 24
Here's an idea for how to use ramen noodles in a different way for a quick meal!
This version is also another idea of what to do with pulled pork. I used some pulled pork that I had cooked a bunch plain and froze for individual portions for myself later.
What I used:
- 1/2 block of ramen (no seasoning)
- Pulled pork (cooked and defrosted
- Frozen spinach (thawed and microwaved)
- Oyster sauce
This was for an individual portion.
1.) Put a pan on the stove on medium-high with a little vegetable oil.
2.) Microwave or boil ramen in some water for 2-3 min. You want the noodles to be cooked, but not too soft. I just put them in a bowl with some water as shown .
3.) Take noodles out of bowl & pat dry with paper towel(s).
-- If you are making a bigger batch, you can use a colander to drain noodles, but I recommend patting them dry with a paper towel.
-- Tip: Making sure the noodles are dry is key to get brown and crispy
4.) Put in the pan with oil for at least 2-3 minutes to let it get brown & crispy.
If you want, you can flip the noodles if you want some crispiness on the other side. Or if you want some softness (lo mein like part to your noodles), then don't flip them and take out
5.) While the noodles are in the pan, microwave pulled pork with a little oyster sauce to your liking.
6.) Add the pork and spinach to the noodles.
Eat! Give it a try! We are good at this!
