Ramen Hot and Sour Soup

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by personalchef

I am a hot and sour soup SNOB, for sure! I could eat it every day, but since I live 47 miles from the closest Chinese restaurant, and I'm on a budget as far as buying ingredients...I dreamed this up, and trust me, it is yummy. Not the real thing for sure, but it satisfies my cravings. I use Maruchan Ramen in either the oriental or shrimp flavor. You can use any brand rice vinegar, seasoned or unseasoned, and for the heat, I use only Sriracha HOT Chili Sauce. (or as we call it, rooster sauce, because of the picture of the rooster on the bottle.)

I made this for my daughter for lunch today. I made as directed but added a little corn and sesame oil. It was easy and fast and tasted great. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Add the sliced meat if desired. You can use beef, pork, or uncooked small shrimp.
