How do you pan fry ramen noodles?
Ramen noodles are easy to pan fry. (or stir fry) Just boil the noodles in hot water for 1-2 minutes until the noodles start to soften and come apart. They should be slightly al dente (still have a slight bite to them.) Then toss them in a pan with some oil or your favourite sauce.
If using fresh ramen noodles, you will only need to boil them for 30-60 seconds. Before tossing them in the Stir Fry.
How to make Ramen Noodle Stir Fry
Chop up the bok choy then sautee it in a pot on medium-high heat with some garlic.
Boil the ramen noodles for 1-2 minutes just until they start to soften and break apart. Then add the noodles to the pot along with the stir fry sauce.
Toss everything together until evenly coated. If the noodles start to stick to the pan, add a splash of water or vegetable broth and mix it all up.
Serve these noodles topped with some toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Chop up the bok choy into bite-sized pieces. This way it’ll get evenly distributed with the noodles and you’ll get some bok choy in every bite! You can alternatively use Chinese broccoli, snow peas, regular broccoli or any green vegetable you like in this recipe!
- Don’t overcook the ramen noodles. Boil them just until they come apart and have a slight bite to them. The noodles will continue to cook slightly as you stir fry them. Ramen noodles should have a chewy texture in the end and not be soggy.
- Serve immediately. Noodles dishes are best enjoyed right away while they’re still hot and the sauce is still saucy.
