Turns out you can make homemade ramen without JUST following the package directions.

Prep Time: 3 hours-overnight

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 package (130g) Shin Black Ramen (use noodles and seasoning packet)

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ tablespoons (22ml) Canola oil 

  • 5 oz (141g) ground beef, rolled into two 2 ½ oz (70g) balls

  • Salt and pepper to taste 

  • 2 slices American Cheese 

  • Spicy mustard, for topping

  • Kewpie mayo, for topping

  • 2 tablespoons (6.5g) finely diced sweet onion


  1. Cook ramen noodles according to package directions, until just al dente. Drain noodles. 

  2. Add the drained noodles to a large mixing bowl and season with the seasoning packet to taste. Whisk your two eggs together and stir into your noodles.

  3. Place half the ramen noodle-egg mixture into a bun sized ramekin covered with plastic wrap and weigh down with a can of soup, repeat with the other half of noodles. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or ideally overnight. 

  4. Heat a large non-stick sauté pan over medium high heat, add a bit of oil to coat the pan and pan sear the “ramen buns” on both sides until golden, about 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside and cook burgers. 

  5. Place the pan over medium-high heat and coat with a bit of oil. Place the ground beef balls down and press down with a wide spatula. Season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste.  Cook until browned, about 1-2 minutes, flip, season with salt to taste, top with cheese and let it melt. 

  6. Build your burger: ramen bun, mustard, kewpie mayo, diced onions, your two burger patties, and cover. Plate and serve and enjoy!
