How to Make Your Own Delicious Ramen Burger

BY LAURA VITTO / SEP 22, 2013


Ahh, the ramen burger. It's the cronut's savory counterpart: A juicy beef patty
topped with green onion and arugula, swaddled between two salty ramen
noodle "buns."
Since Keizo Shimamoto debuted the dish at a food festival in Brooklyn, N.Y.,
people have waited in line for hours to get their hands on some of this salty,
noodle-y goodness. Shimamoto even brought the craze to the west coast,
selling 500 burgers to dedicated L.A. foodies in early September.
If you live somewhere in between, or don't have the desire to wait in line, it's
likely you haven't had a chance to try a ramen burger. If you don't have the
patience to wait on long lines, you might be better off trying to make this tasty
dish for yourself. And guess what? It's way simpler than you think.
We made our own version of the ramen burger and now you can too.

4. Form the ramen "buns."
Spray the inside of two deep, flat-bottom bowls with cooking spray and divide the
ramen-egg mixture equally among them. Press the noodles into the bottoms of the
dishes to form discs, then cover with saran wrap.

5. Weight the "buns" with a heavy glass, can
or jar.
Soup cans and jam jars work well here. Place both bowls in the refrigerator for about
30 minutes.

6. Invert the "buns" onto a pre-heated skillet.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat.
Remove the bowls from the refrigerator, remove the saran wrap and invert one of
the "buns" over the pan.

7. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes until golden brown
on one side. Then flip.
After you've flipped it, you should only need about 2 to 3 minutes more to cook it
thoroughly.
