Sometimes it feels like I make the same things all of the time. This is a bit strange. I feel like I try very hard to make new and different foods for my family to enjoy; and to share with you. So, when I made Ramen Stir Fry it made me wonder if Paganini had felt similarly doing his Variations on a Theme.
Like Paganini’s music the reviews on my dinner were favorable. The biggest negative came from The Hubs. He was not disappointed in the dinner that I made, but had misread the menu and thought I was making Ramen Bowls again.
The girls really liked Ramen Stir Fry. In fact they liked it more than traditional Fried Rice which they both like. Using the noodles made the stir fry more like Lo Mein which is one of their favorite dishes.
What I love most about this meal is how quick and easy it is. Yes, it is a variation on a theme. It is another great way to use the ever popular, cost effective noodle packets that are a staple in college rooms. Again, I told out the sodium laden seasoning packet and flavor it with some pantry staples and vegetables.
Another plus for any stir fry, not just Ramen Stir Fry, is the versatility of various meat additions or not. This is a wonderful vegetarian dish if the meat is left out. It is also a wonderful platform for leftover pork, beef, or chicken.
Do you make homemade Stir Fry? If so, what are your favorite things to stir in?
I will absolutely make Ramen Stir Fry again. Of course, I will probably do a few slight variations on the theme.
