This "ramen hack" dresses up packaged ramen with fresh ingredients. This particular version is a take-off of gloppy, tangy, luridly red Chinese-American sweet-and-sour dishes. Adapted from a recipe at Serious Eats. http://bit.ly/eTtZ8C

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (3 -4 ounce) package ramen noodles, any flavor
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 12 red bell pepper, cut in 1-inch squares
  • 3 -4 ounces Spam or 3 -4 ounces ham, cut in bite-size chunks
  • 1 (7 ounce) can pineapple chunks in juice
  • 12 cup ketchup
  • chili-garlic sauce, to taste


  1. Boil ramen in water until they soften and the noodles separate. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet until it shimmers. Add the bell pepper and Spam and saute until hot. Add pineapple (with its juice), ketchup, chili-garlic sauce and noodles. Toss until coated and serve.
