5 Ultimate Tiktok Ramen Recipes

We all love a good TikTok hack–especially when it involves ramen hacks! The latest ramen hack that has done viral on the social media app is a Spicy Garlic Butter Ramen that’s seasoned with Everything Bagel Spice. Its taste is likened to the iconic Indomie Mi Goreng, and if that excites your tastebuds, better get cooking! Since this recipe still is an instant noodle recipe, it only takes a few minutes!

Tiktok Ramen Ingredients

1. Instant Ramen - TikTok Ramen hacks typically ditch the seasoning packet and only use the instant noodle block. It doesn’t really matter whether you get spicy or non-spicy flavored ramen from the grocery, but do know that different brands have different kinds of texture. If you want chewy noodles, go for the Nong Shim Shin Ramyun brand, Samyang noodles are also easy to find!

2. Butter and Garlic - Buttered garlic is the perfect combination for any dish, including ramen! The recipe calls for only 1 teaspoon of chopped or minced garlic, but if you’re crazy for garlic, go ahead and chop more cloves depending on your liking!

3. Brown Sugar - A hint of sweetness is key to deepening the salty flavors of your ramen. If you don’t have brown sugar at home, you can substitute it for other sweeteners like white sugar or honey.

4. Soy Sauce - You might have ditched the seasoning packet, but that doesn’t mean we won’t season your ramen. It’s all about controlling and cutting back on artificial flavors that may not be good for your health. Soy sauce is the perfect base for your upgraded ramen seasoning. Tamari or Coconut Aminos are also good gluten-free alternatives to soy sauce.

5. Crushed red peppers -
One great thing about making your own sauce is you get to control the spice level of your noodle dish. Adding freshly crushed red peppers also adds better flavor and cleaner-tasting heat compared to artificial spices from the seasoning packet.

6. Everything But Bagel Seasoning or Furikake - Everything but Bagel seasoning is a miracle mixture of toasted black and white sesame seeds, minced dried garlic and onion, and flaky sea salt.

This is just like Furikake, although furikake uses nori and infuses other Asian flavors like bonito flakes, chili powder, and even miso powder. These two seasonings not only boost the taste of your ramen, it also offers a delightful crunch that you won’t experience in your regular instant ramen.

7. Egg - No noodle dish is complete without an egg. It adds your much-needed protein for the day and makes this recipe more filling. You’re free to omit this if you’re making a vegan version of this Tiktok recipe.

How To Make TikTok Ramen Noodles

1. Cook your instant ramen noodles according to package instructions, BUT skip the part where you add in the seasoning packet. Try your best not to overcook the noodles so you don’t mess up the texture of the dish. No one wants soggy noodles! Cooking it al dente also helps your homemade sauce stick to the noodles better.

2. Make your own sauce by sauteing the garlic over butter in low heat. Stir in the crushed red peppers, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Stir constantly so as not to burn the brown sugar.

3. Add the drained noodles to the sauce and toss to evenly coat the noodles in flavor.

4. Push your noodles to one side of the pan and fry your egg to the side. You can go for scrambled or sunny-side-up eggs. You can even skip this part or boil your own egg separately.

5. Garnish your noodles with sliced scallions and furikake.

Other Viral Tiktok Ramen Hacks

The spicy butter garlic ramen recipe isn’t the only hack that has been making rounds online. Here are a few more instant ramen upgrades that I thought were worth trying!

1. Japanese Mayo Hack. Instead of ditching the seasoning packet for this particular hack, it’s going back in along with a scoop of Japanese mayonnaise and raw egg. Sounds odd? I thought so too, but as soon as I tried it, the smooth and creamy broth surprised me in a great way! Christie at Home shares that all you need to do is mix raw egg, a tablespoon of Japanese mayo, minced garlic, and ramen instant seasoning before adding it into your boiling ramen broth.

2. Peanut Butter Gochujang Hack. Peanut butter…on ramen? Before you shake your head, give it a shot because IT’S WORTH IT!

Instead of dumping your tongue-numbing spicy sauce that comes with your instant noodles, go for gochujang and gochugaru for fresher and cleaner-tasting heat. Balance it off by adding 1 ½ tablespoon of smooth peanut butter. The Food Diaries sums up this odd but delicious TikTok hack: there’s a lot to love about fiery flavors that are balanced by a touch of nutty creaminess!

3. Samyang Stir-Fry Hack. I too have a Samyang Hack to share! My favorite way of upgrading the Samyang noodles is to add bacon bits, boiled eggs, seaweed sheets, and a colorful combination of green and red bell peppers and carrots. Nothing too fancy here, just a quick and sure-fire way to get your veggies and protein in for the day.

4. Creamy Mushroom Ramen. Instead of using an overly salted seasoning packet, this recipe from Budget Bytes uses vegetable broth, half a cup of coconut milk, mushrooms, and fresh spinach as the sauce for your instant ramen. It’s like making pasta, only that it takes 15 minutes to cook! Garnish with chili garlic sauce or sriracha and even you might surprise yourself that you can make such a dish from instant noodles.

More TikTok Ramen Hacks will definitely pop up in the future because there are so many ways you can upgrade your ramen. Hop on these food trends and go on unforgettable food ventures before the hype goes away!
