Spicy Korean-style Ramen Noodles Recipe

The ramen noodle originated in China, but with the 1958 invention of the “instant” ramen noodle by Momofuku Ando, Taiwanese-Japanese founder and chairman of Nissan Foods, its popularity skyrocketed worldwide. In fact, the instant ramen noodle was voted the greatest Japanese invention of the 20th century by popular poll! One last tidbit …. South Koreans consume the greatest amount of instant ramen noodles per capita per year!

Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 3 minutes | Serves: 4

Ramen Noodles


  • 2 3-ounce packages of ramen noodles, Oriental flavored (reserve one of the flavor packets from one of the ramen noodles)
  • 1/2 cup water, reserved from cooking the ramen noodles
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • a pinch of garlic powder
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, for extra heat if desired


  1. Bring 3 cups of water to boil in saucepan. Break noodles in half and add to boiling water. Save one of the Oriental flavor packets from the packages of ramen. Discard the other. Cook noodles for 3 minutes. Drain noodles, reserving 1/2 cup of water. Place noodles in serving bowl.
  2. Mix reserved flavor packet, reserved 1/2 cup of noodle water, soy sauce, and garlic powder together. Mix into noodles. Stir in onion, jalapeno, and red pepper flakes. Allow noodles to sit for about 5 minutes before serving to absorb most of the soup base.
