Kimchi Ramen

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Dorm Food”. I never stayed in a dorm but I did eat cheaply during college. The one dish that stood out was top ramen with an egg. I decided to recreate this but with a dish that I actually want to eat and I love ramen.

This was really good but I can only imagine how much better it would with a broth instead of water.

Even though this recipe does call for package ramen, I typically try to get the higher quality ones at an asian market. Also, different types of noodles would go with this as well.

A** Blood is a hot chili powder that I make with ghost chilis but you can use any sort of hot sauce or powder.
