In addition to the Instant Mi Goreng, Shin Ramyun (the Korean Hot Spicy Noodle Soup) is another favourite of mine when I want a very quick and cheap meal at home. I got introduced to this popular Korean instant noodles by my dorm mates when I was doing my undergraduate and have not looked back ever since.

In contrast to my student life, instant noodles are now more like a treat rather than a necessity. Whenever I need a kick in my palate, spicy ramen like Shin Ramyun can definitely hit the spot. Like all things, I keep my consumption of instant noodles to a moderate amount or simply change things up a little by cooking homemade versions like the recipe on homemade “Indonesian Mi Goreng”.

So are you ready for an easy spicy ramen recipe? The key ingredient is Korean hot bean paste and the beauty of homemade is you can control the amount of spiciness and saltiness in your ramen.

  1. I tried it and it was delicious ! I only made a few changes : I didn’t use mushrooms (because I don’t like that), but I used carrots instead.
    I also garnished with soybean sprouts and sesame seeds. I would also add an egg in the broth to make it more “consistent” as a meal and add more veggies (like cabbage).
    I’m really happy because I’m a college student and I love Shin Ramyun but I don’t think it’s very healthy and it makes my face feel very bloated ^^”
    Thank you so much for this recipe !

  2. Thanks for posting this, I love Shin Ramyun and really want to make a healthier version at home. I usually drop an egg into the pot and let it poach, add some frozen mixed Asian veggies and mix through a tin of tuna at the end. Can’t wait to try your version.

  3. Hi, my daughter got my American family hooked on Korean comedy dramas after her high school friends in Southern California got her into them. Anytime you watch a Kdrama, you start craving ramyun! Also, my stepdaughter’s husband in Portland got a Korean sister-in-law and she got my (blonde) stepdaughter hooked on Ramyun. SO…thank you for your recipe! It’s the best out there. 🙂

    • Thanks for your lovely feedback Sharon! My housemate in college introduced spicy Korean Ramyun to me when I was basically living on the Indonesian Mi Goreng (not sure if you had them before?) back in the days that I did not know how to cook. Looking back, it makes me think of how far I’ve come since my college days.

  4. Hi there! I’m just wondering how similar this tastes to the original shin ramyun? I am an avid user of gochujang and I find that although it is chilli, it is a different flavour to shin ramyun. Thanks for the recipe, I think I will still try it 🙂

    • You can taste the similarity like the chilli and the shiitake but it is not as spicy and salty as the original shin ramyun. I hope you will enjoy the recipe. 🙂 x Emily
