Ramen Burger

I don't live in Brooklyn and I have no interest in making the journey out there.  So my odds of ever getting a chance to try the famed Ramen Burger from Keizo Shimoto were slim to none. As luck would have it there are already dozens of copy-cat Ramen burger recipes out there.

You will need a ramekin or other small round container to make the buns in.  I used a can of olives to press the Ramen down and keep it compact while in the fridge.

Ramen Burger

1 Ramen noodle package
1 egg
1 burger patty

1. Cook noodles according to package directions, about 3 minutes.  Drain and mix with egg.  Sprinkle about half the seasoning packet into noodle and egg mixture.
2. Line 2 ramekins with plastic wrap.  Divide noodle mixture evenly among ramekins.  Wrap with plastic wrap liner, and top with a can to press down while refrigerating. Refrigerate 15-20 minutes.
3. Sprinkle both sides of your burger with remaining Ramen seasoning.  Cook burger patty as you see fit. Brown both sides of Ramen buns in a greased pan, about 3 minutes per side.
4.  Serve up with some siracha sauce and enjoy!

I had some soy glazed green beans as my side here.  Got to keep it healthy, ya know?

Overall I would say this burger is definitely worth a try.  I would make 2 buns out of the Ramen noodles next time in attempt to make it easier to eat and in hopes that it would make me feel less disgusted with myself.
