This is like fried rice but it's done more quickly! We love this about once a week!

- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 pinch white pepper
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 4 green onions, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1⁄2-1 cup diced roast pork (I use tofu if I include this at all, optional, optional) (optional) or 1⁄2-1 cup cooked chicken (I use tofu if I include this at all, optional, optional) (optional) or 1⁄2-1 cup shrimp (I use tofu if I include this at all, optional, optional) (optional) or 1⁄2-1 cup tofu (I use tofu if I include this at all) (optional)

Made this last night alongside some marinated steak tips and fresh green beans. It was really good! I added some tiny shrimp to it, and they gave it a nice flavor. My only suggestion is to use a nonstick skillet, if you have one, which I don't. I don't usually have problems with my calphalon, but the noodles stuck. Anyway, this is a very good and easy side dish!
This was awesome! I actually boiled the noodles for 2 minutes, drained and put in ice water to stop the cooking process. Kept the noodles nice and firm before frying. Thanks for the posting.
This dish is awesome. It really jazzes up the 'lowly" ramen noodle! I used pork flavored noodles and didn't add peas (yuck) so I added a little bit of minced white onion for "crunch". It went together easily and I LOVED the sesame oil on the egg! The first time I made it I ate it as it was. The second time I used it as a base and topped it with a Thai inspired pork stir fry. Both times tasty beyond belief! Thanks Meow for the fabulous recipe!
