Sometimes, the internet can be a great place.
This ramen recipe went viral for a reason, and that reason is it is absolutely delish and totally share-worthy. Plus, it's super easy to make!
Table & Thyme loves any chance to try our hand at a viral recipe. You never know when you are gonna strike gold! We had a blast making the Baked Feta Pasta that trended a while ago, and we even made a Gluten-Free version for more people to enjoy! This time, we couldn’t resist testing out the viral ramen recipe that garnered a whopping 97.9 million views on Tik Tok under the #tiktokramen tag! We are so excited to share this recipe hack for flavor-packed ramen, so let’s get to it!
How to Make Viral Tik Tok Ramen
While everyone has their own personal method of making ramen, this recipe calls for a package of instant ramen, butter, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, soy sauce, everything bagel seasoning, and an egg. You can use the flavor packet that comes with the ramen, too, if you’d like, but we recommend skipping it to get a totally unique ramen experience!
Start by cooking the noodles according to package instructions (boil in water for a few minutes until tender). You should be able to cook the noodles in a saucepan rather than a pot, making it easier to prepare the flavor. Once the noodles are tender, drain them and set them aside to use later.
In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and stir in the minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Allow the ingredients to sit in the heat for a few minutes, letting the garlic soften and become fragrant.
Then add in the brown sugar, stirring it until it dissolves completely. Finally, add the soy sauce and stir to mix thoroughly.
Place the noodles back into the pan and use tongs to toss and coat them evenly in the sauce.
Next up is preparing the egg! Push the noodles to one side of the pan and crack an egg onto the other. Scramble the egg in the pan until cooked (it should not take long) and then mixed the scrambled egg in with the noodles.
Plate your ramen, sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning, and enjoy!
