3 Buzzfeed Recipes for Ramen Noodles Put to the Test | Buzzfeed Food Tested!

Posted on

Hey what's up? My name is Joe.

Today we'regonna try three different Ramen recipes that Buzzfeed says are awesome.

We're gonna doSpicy Peanut Butter Ramen, we're gonna do Pizza Ramen, we're gonna do Cheesy Ramen.

Let's get started.

Recipe number one, we're gonna make spicy peanut butter ramen.

Forthis we're gonna need peanut butter, sriracha sauce, soy sauce and obviously ramen.

If youdon't have a lot of time this recipe is for you because it is super easy, super quickand apparently Buzzfeed says it's super delicious so here we go.

Ok so first thing you needto do is you need to boil some ramen.

You can add the flavor packet if you want butI'm gonna skip it this time.

The ramen looks like it's done so we're gonna take it outof the pot and put it into a bowl.

Now we're gonna put the rest of the ingredients intothe bowl and mix it together.

We are going to need a teaspoon of soy sauce, a littlebit of sriracha, really as much as you want.

If you like it mild, you can put a littlebit.

If you like it spicy, put as much as you want.

And a generous heap of peanut butter.

Alright so we're gonna take the soy sauce and pour it into the bowl.

Since I'm a peanutbutter fan, I'm going to put a really generous heap.

It's better if you use chunky peanutbutter.

Buzzfeed says it tastes a little better, but we'll see.

This is really a generous heap.

Next thing we're going to do is we're gong to put as little sriracha as you'd like.

Thisreminds a little of sesame noodles, the smell of it.

I think that's made with a little bitof peanut butter if I'm not mistaken but I really have no idea I've never made it butit is delicious and I'm hoping that it will taste somewhat similar.

So I did a super outstandingjob mixing this together and now I am going to taste it and see how it is.

Tastes good.

Like I thought, you need a little bit of salt, but overall it is really delicious.

The chunkypeanut butter really makes this dish because of the crunch.

I thought maybe sesame seedsmight do that, but you really don't need that because of the crunchy peanuts that are inthe peanut butter.

Really really delicious.

I think this was a Buzzfeed test success.

It took about 7/8 minutes to do, really delicious and let's move onto another one that's a littlebit harder.

Recipe number 2, we are going to make cheesy Italian ramen.

It's a littleinteresting because Ramen is an asian noodle and cheesy is more like Italian, so I'm interestedto see how that's going to work out.

For this recipe we're gonna need 2 packs of ramen withoutthe flavoring, 2 different types of parmesan cheese, 3 tablespoons of butter, some blackpepper and olive oil.

First thing we're gonna do, we're gonna take 3 tablespoons of butter,1tablespoon of olive oil and a bit of black pepper and put it in the water before youboil the ramen.

Gotta mix it all together and make sure that the butter is diluted inthe water and go ahead and bring it to a boil.

So the water has come to a boil, now we'regonna take one cup of each cheese and quickly put in the ramen and then stir it all together.

It smells a little bit like wacky mac.

So Buzzfeed didn't tell us how much water toput in the pot so right now this seems like it's going to be really watery and gross.

It seems like it's as done as it could be, still seems a little watery but we're goingto transfer it into a bowl.

So we just transferred our cheesy ramen into a bowl.

I wouldn't reallycall it cheesy ramen, I'd call it water ramen because at first glance it looks very wateryand the cheese looks very clumpy.

I'm gonna take a bite before I judge it by it's coverI guess, I don't know.

I'm not gonna take a big bite because this does not look good.

The ramen tastes very watery, I didn't even get any cheese on that, little bit of pepper.

That's all the ingredients together but it doesn't really work so well in this recipe.

Buzzfeed test fail.

We're gonna move onto the next one which is pizza ramen which I'mvery excited to make.

Alright so recipe number 3 we are going to make pizza ramen.

Lookssuper easy but it's a little weird.

I've never really thought of having ramen noodles asmy pizza base but you know, try it out and see how it goes.

For this recipe we're goingto need pepperoni, we're going to need pizza sauce, we're gong to need ramen and cheese.

We're gong to basically put it all onto the ramen and bake it in the oven on 375 for,doesn't really give a time, it just says to keep an eye on it, and that's exactly whatwe're gonna do.

Alright so we're gonna take the ramen and break it in half, as such.


Spread it around on each.

Everyone loves a lot of cheese.

We're going to placepepperoni on the pizza.

Alright, so we're ready to put our pizza ramen into the oven.

They should bake for around 15 minutes but you should keep an eye on them and see howthey go.

Let's go.

So we just took the pizza ramen out of the oven, baked them for 17 minutesand 39 seconds on the dot.

They look really delicious actually.

The consistency, one ofthem feels a little flimsy and the other one feels a little you know more solid but forthe most part it just looks like pizza ramen.

So we're gonna take a bite out of it and seehow it tastes.

Alright here we go.

That is really good.

The crunchiness is really great.

It tastes like just crunchy pizza but I love crunchiness as you can tell from the spicypeanut butter ramen.

Crunchiness is great.

I recommend this.

Buzzfeed test success again.

I'd give this a 7.

5 out of 10 just because it's a little weird that it's not pizza dough,but it's still super delicious that it's crunchy and I'm a big fan.

If I had to rank theseramen recipes, I'd pick the spicy peanut butter ramen as my number one choice.

The mix ofthe crunchiness and the peanut butter really did it for me.

Number 2 I would choose thepizza ramen.

It was really delicious.

The pepperoni and the cheesiness and the crunch,the interesting crunch of the dough was also very good.

The one I disliked the most wasthe water cheesy ramen.

It wasn't the best.

The ingredients did not really tell me howmuch water I should put in when I mix it all together.

If you're in need of a quick fixand have a tight budget these recipes will do the trick for you.

It's still good evenan hour and a half later.
