Forget what the package says about making Ramen. If you follow those directions you'll end up with crap stew.
Here's the absolute best way in the world to make Ramen:
First, beat the hell out of the ramen. Smash it all up inside the bag.
Then, get a pot of water boiling. It doesn't matter if it's 2 cups or 55 cups. As long as theres enough water to cover the noodles and keep them covered for 3 minutes while boiling:
After the water is boiling, toss in your crushed up noodles. Be sure to keep that sweet, sweet flavor packet to the side:
Now, let the noodles boil for 3 minutes. You may stir occasionally if you'd like to feel like you're really cooking something:
Now, once that's done boiling, grab a colander:
Pour the ramen pot into the colander, and strain off all the water. Do not rinse!!! Then after the water is pretty much out of the noodles, pour the noodles in a bowl:
Now take the heavenly goodness that is the Ramen noodle flavor packet, and pour it right on top of your freshly cooked noodles:
Now, stir the flavoring throughout the noodles:
And voila! Now, instead of "Chicken Broth with Plain Noodles" (which is what you'd end up with if you followed the instructions on the package), you end up with "Chicken Flavored Noodles" and they are freaking AWESOME!!!!
Even if youve tried Ramen before, but cooked the crap stew that the instructions say to cook... try this - its great!!!
** DISCLAIMER ** I am not responsible for any health related issues due to the sodium intake from preparing ramen this way. Thats what makes it so good! If you can't have lots of salt, or are on some weird ass low-sodium diet, go eat a rice cake!
