Back to Basics Ramen

Last week I made a pot of ramen for three, me and my two kids.  Used flat pho rice noodles and small wagu hamburger on top.  Somehow it turned out bland and neither kid finished theirs.  I thought it just needed salt, but maybe I had strayed too far from basic ramen, at least for the kids.

Today I made ramen for two (me and my daughter) but made it with good old $0.25 packs of ramen.  One beef, one chicken; used both flavor packets.  No way this one will be under salted.  Onion, carrot, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic.  Had my usual sauerkraut and some leftover BBQ brisket from Rudy’s.  I’m not giving up on the more unusual combinations but sometimes you have to dial it back a little.
