This Ramen Stir Fry is the tastiest noodle dish, ready in 20 minutes! Prepackaged ramen noodles are cooked and stir-fried with tons of veggies in a homemade sweet Asian sauce. So so tasty and super kid-friendly. Delicious with Homemade Potstickers or Asian Salmon.
Ramen Stir Fry vs Stir Fry Noodles
You might be asking yourself what the big difference is concerning these two dishes. Not much!
Stir Fry Noodles can include a wide variety of noodle types such as egg noodles, udon noodles, chow mein noodles, spaghetti, linguine, and ramen noodles!
Ramen stir fry is specifically made with, you guessed it, ramen noodles (yes the packaged kind you most likely ate as a poor college student). It’s cheap, cooks fast, and is tossed with tons of veggies and a great-tasting sauce.
Feel free to use what you like or have with this recipe. Just be sure to add in some powdered chicken bouillon if you aren’t going to use the cheap ramen that comes with flavor packets.
Which Ramen Flavor Should I Choose?
Pick the ramen flavor that you like best, we used chicken flavor but pork, beef or shrimp would work just as well.
There are 3 whole cups of veggies stir-fried right alongside these ramen noodles and my kids ate it all! I’m talking carrots, celery, broccoli, green beans, and more! It was a sight to behold. I highly recommend using veggies your own family will eat so if that means making some substitutions, by all means, go ahead. Here are some ideas that would go well with this dish:
- green beans
- snow peas
- bell peppers
Can I Add a Protein to this Dish?
You can absolutely add protein to this vegetarian dish. You’ll want to fully cook your protein before you add in your veggies to stir fry. Consider adding chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, or eggs to this ramen stir fry recipe.
Ramen Stir Fry Sauce
Did I mention that I created a sauce for this dish using some Asian condiments, sesame oil, and water, along with some of the flavored seasoning packets that come with the ramen? These ingredients create a light, slightly sweet, and flavorful sauce that pairs really well with the noodles and veggies. We obviously didn’t hate it.
What can I use Instead of Mr.Yoshida Sauce?
Mr.Yoshida Sauce can be found either in the condiment section or the Asian section at most grocery stores. If you can’t find it, no big deal! Simply replace with a yummy teriyaki sauce like this one or this one. Or if you need a quick fix, use a little more hoisin sauce.
