Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add ramen noodles. Boil, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender, about 3 minutes. Drain. Allow noodles to cool slightly.
  2. Beat 2 eggs in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Stir noodles into eggs until evenly coated. Divide noodles into 6 burger-size ramekins or bowls. Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly over noodles and stack another bowl on top to flatten noodles. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.
  3. Mix beef, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a bowl. Divide beef mixture into three equal portions and shape into patties.
  4. Heat about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Invert each ramen bowl, gently tapping the bottom of the bowl until ramen loosens, careful to maintain bun shape.
  5. Fry each ramen bun, without moving noodles, in hot oil until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip each bun and continue frying until crisp, 3 to 5 minutes more. Ramen bun should be crispy on one side and slightly softer on the other. Transfer buns to large plate with the crispy side up.
  6. Heat about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the same skillet used to fry ramen over medium heat. Cook beef patties until burgers are lightly pink in the center, 3 to 5 minute per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Arrange a slice of American cheese over each burger and continue to cook until melted, about 1 minute more.
  7. Mix ketchup and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl; spread mixture over the crispy side of each ramen bun. Divide arugula over 3 ramen buns. Place burgers over arugula.
  8. Heat about 1 teaspoon oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat; fry remaining eggs one at a time, adding more oil as needed, until yolk is almost firm, about 1 minutes per side. Place egg over patty and top with remaining bun.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Place a can of soup into the stacked ramen bowls to weigh the bowls down.
  • Instead of salt and pepper, you can add just one of the ramen seasoning packets to the cooked noodles for even more flavor.

We loved these ramen burgers! We included one of the seasoning packets in with the noodles and they had TONS of flavor. We also mixed the chopped green onions into patty. So delicious - and not really a burger as much as a mix of all those incredible Japanese flavors: soy, sesame, onion, and noodles.

Tried this last year. Did my best to make it work. Not happening.

Sounds AWESOME! I think I will have to put a VeggieBurger in the middle, though.

Surprisingly tasty! Especially with green onions in the burger patty.

This actually saddens me to have to do this, but we did not like these at all. I was so hoping that these would hit the spot for us b/c I loved the concept of these. I had no issue making the ramen 'buns', and actually had fun doing it. I made these into sliders. I do wish they had more flavor, though. I felt like when I bit into it all I could taste was plain noodles. Again, I am so sorry, but these just didn't do it for us...Thanks for sharing.

We love Ramen Burgers! We make the Ramen "bun" exactly as this recipe calls for but instead of the other ingredients in this list, we just make a regular hamburger patty with salt and pepper. Then after frying both the hamburger patty and the Ramen bun (separately of course), we fry an egg and put a slice of cheddar on it and mix a little ketchup and Sriracha sauce, assemble the works and Voila! A whole new type of Ramen Burger... and delicious!!!

I've made it using the egg binder noodle method and the sauce and scallions, etc. and haven't liked the results. I’ve seen enough ramen burgers being made and tried enough recipes to know that execution is not the issue. I like this method better and do consider it an improvement. However, I don't think either is a particularly good concept.

I did a take on this with slaw, a chorizo patty, cheddar cheese and a scallion and egg mixture. Was very good! Messy but it did hold together until the last bite. Posted photo.
