Ramen Burger

This “Ramen Burger” has been a unique food trend for a little while now, and when I saw it (being a ramen and burger lover) I knew I had to give it a try! Here’s how you recreate one at home yourself.

Ingredients

1 package ramen noodles
2 eggs, divided
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 tablespoon sriracha
1 beef burger patty
Soy sauce
Sesame oil
1 slice Cheddar Cheese
1 scallion, thinly sliced on the bias
1/2 cup arugula

Directions

Cook the ramen according to the directions on the package (including the seasoning), then drain off the liquid. I used beef ramen to keep the company of the beef patty. Let cool to room temperature. In a small mixing bowl, whisk 1 egg until no streaks of yolk remain. Add the ramen, tossing thoroughly to coat with the egg. Divide the egg-dressed ramen into two portions, and place each half into a ramekin.

Cover the ramen with plastic wrap, and weigh it down with a can of soup to compress it into a bun shape. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

Add the oil to a skillet, and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, unmold the ramen buns into the pan, and cook until the bottom is a dark golden brown. Flip both of the patties, and cook until a dark golden brown on both sides.

Whisk together the sriracha and ketchup in a small bowl. You can make a little extra of this is you’re serving french fries or tater tots like I did.

Season the hamburger patty with salt, pepper, a splash of soy sauce, and sesame oil. Wipe out the skillet, and cook the burger over medium-high heat until medium rare, or to your preferred degree of doneness. Finish with a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil. Top with a slice of cheese.

Wipe out the skillet, and lower the heat to medium. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan, and fry 1 egg sunny side up.

Assemble the burger in this order: ramen bun, arugula, ketchup, burger patty (cheese side up), fried egg, scallions, and the second ramen bun. Wrap in wax paper for easier eating, and serve hot.

Forgive me in advance for this photo. It was taken with my cell phone in a dark kitchen. This burger disappeared so fast there were no opportunities to take any others…not always a bad thing :)

Are there any food trends you’re in love with or so over? Let me know what you think!
