The title is a little misleading, as I found these recipes in med school. For everyone who is dying to live like a college student or those of us who are currently or have the budget of one, these are for you!
First up, RamShepherd's Pie
Ingredients: Two packets of beef ramen, 1 pound of ground beef, (these next ingredients are at your budgetary discretion) 1 can of corn (or fresh corn shaved from the cob again at your discretion), 1 can of peas, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon Sriacha.
Steps: Boil the ramen per directions on the packet, but DO NOT add the flavoring. Preheat oven to 400. Brown the beef thoroughly. Cook the corn and peas as directed. In separate container, add the sauces and mix thoroughly. If you are rich enough to afford corn and peas, mix them with the beef now. Add most of the sauce, saving a little for after the baking, to the beef and mix until satisfied. Lay the mixture in the bottom of a baking pan and flatten. Lay the cooked ramen on top and spread to cover the beef. Place pan in oven and watch closely until the top of the ramen starts to brown (It can brown quickly, but sometimes it takes awhile. Just keep a close eye on it). Take out of oven, finish with a little of the sauce that you saved and enjoy!
For my second and last recipe, Spicy Chicken and Ramen
Ingredients: 1 chicken breast, 1 packet ramen(you can expand as you may need to feed more than yourself), 1 tablespoon Sriacha, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sour cream, red pepper flakes to taste.
Steps: Cook chicken thoroughly. My preferred method is to brown the chicken, dice it (since it is going to be diced anyway) and continue to cook on medium-high until done. Cook ramen per instructions on packet, and again DO NOT add flavoring. In a separate bowl, add the sauces (except the red pepper flakes), and mix thoroughly. Once the ramen is cooked and drained, add it to the chicken in a bowl. Pour the sauce into the chicken/noodle and mix thoroughly. Garnish with red pepper flakes. If you aren't satisfied with the spice, add jalapenos to the dish!
See? Eating like a college kid isn't SOOOOO bad!
