002: New use for Ramen

Anyone ever tried making stir-fry with ramen noodles? It actually turns out really good! You can do it with just about any flavor noodles, plus any meats and veggies you want to use. You'll need a pretty big skillet (probably 12") or a wok to make this.

1. Cut the meat into thin strips, season with two packets from ramen packs, then stir-fry quickly, remove from heat and keep warm
2. Stir-fry any veggies you want, such as thin-cut carrots, broccoli, beansprouts, water chestnuts, snow peas - until crisp-tender
3. Add 4 packs ramen noodles, plus the other two seasoning packets, plus 4 cups water. Nestle the ramen blocks down into the water, and cover the pan. Cook 4-5 minutes or until noodles are soft
4. Add the meat back in, and stir everything up to break up the noodles and absorb the extra water. Cook a few more minutes until the meat's heated through.

And now you have a noodle skillet stir-fry!
