#522: Samyang Hot Beef Flavor Ramen

Was very happy to see this one at the store today! I really like Samyang stuff. I liked their regular bowl, cup, big bowl, pack, beef flavor… It’s good, spicy and straightforward Korean noodles.

The red contains the powder, the blue contains the veggies. The red one had some weight to it – pretty dense!

That reddish powder looks like it’s going to be good’n’spicy! The package comes with a nice large brick of noodles. 550cc boiling water and three minutes later…

Added two eggs scrambled in the pan with a tad of pepper and a punch of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning (you can get it here), which has a nice flavor and a little heat on its own. This stuff delivers exactly what its claiming to. The noodles are plentiful and nice and chewy. The vegetables are ample and very nicely re-hydrated. The broth was nice and spicy too – spicier than the regular Samyang Beef. I really like this stuff. If you like spicy noodles and want to try something Korean, this is perfect! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! Get it at your local Korean grocery store or here.

    They always manage to take a perfect giant bite of noodles and slurp it up perfectly in the commercial. I wonder how many takes it took to get that right – if you notice, they dont show him chewing or anything – he probably kept stuffing noodles into his mouth and then spitting it out again to get the perfect shot. I wish here in america you could slurp noodles like that and it would be good manners.

    Also, what kind of bowl do you use for your ramen? Mine are always overflowing (I got these cool asian bowls, but they always hold tiny serving sizes and I cant find bigger ones. It seems asian dinnerware is made for smaller portions). You must have a big bowl to hold that big noodle block and over 500cc of soup.

      The ones in the pics are the ones I use. The blue striped one is from Uwajimaya and part of a set (alas the other bowl broke years ago) and are very traditional ramen bowls. The others are from 99 Ranch Market and are that plastic you’d find won ton soup spoons at Chinese restaurants made out of.
