1 packet of instant Ramen noodles (100g)
minced beef (200g)
2 spring onions
splash of soy sauce
drizzle of sesame oil
1 pak choi
squeeze of tomato ketchup
dollop of hot chill and ginger sauce
slice of American cheese
splash of oil to fry
boil the noodles in salted water according to packet instructions, although without the seasoning.
drain and leave to cool slightly for a minute
crack an egg into a bowl and beat together.
toss the noodles into the beaten egg, divide in two and press each half into a clingfilm lined mould the same size as you want your burgers (10-12cm across)
fold the clingfilm back over the noodles and place a weight on top to compress as they cool.
slice the spring onions and mix into the beef with the noodle seasoning, soy sauce and sesame oil.
form two burger patties, a similar size to your buns, keeping them pretty thin.
heat up 3 frying pans.
fry the burgers in one pan with a shot of oil for a minute or so on each side.
remove the set ramen burger buns from the clingfilm and fry in a shot of oil in the second pan for 2 minutes on each side so that they go golden and crispy.
crack the egg into the third pan and fry.
mix together the ketchup and hot sauce and adjust to suit your taste.
wash and quarter the pak choi and steam very quickly in a pan with a dash of water.
drain all the frying greasy items on kitchen paper and construct your Ramen burger with a slice of cheese on top of each burger pattie.
