This is both a recipe on how to make the perfect Ramen meal as well as also serving as a Precautionary Tale upon Always Reading the Instructions! Please follow along closely:
YOU WILL NEED:
•1 package of Ramen •2 cups of water •1 packet of seasoning (included)
Thankfully enough the packaging already comes illustrated with quite simple steps which are quite clearly detailed in the instructions on the back.
Following this method quite diligently for many years, I always carefully measured, timed, and each bowel of noodley that I made in this method. It wasn't until I had left the life and place of my upbringing that I discovered on my travels that there was actually an additional step missing from the package that was further required in order to obtain the perfect bowel of ramen hereby detailed in this recipe. (This needed action takes place *between* the listed processes described in 2. and 3. meaning that Step 3 now becomes the New Step 4. Both 1. and 2. remain unaltered and stay consistent in order.)
Step 3.75 What is not listed, and which remains necessary before reaching the desired completeness is to remove out the excess water after boiling the noodles before adding in the packet of seasoning. Straining out this extra liquid beforehand will allow the full artificial flavor to exude itself around the bowel without allowing the taste to become hopelessly diluted from the excess moisture.
After nearly two decades of preparing, eating, and enjoying countless plates of watery mixture: I have now repeated the hidden process enough times to enjoy perfection.
The moral of the story is to always read the instructions first, however it gives no encouragement to then follow them!
