So here’s something new I found at HMart. This is going to be battle for me, however you might wonder why. Well, much of the package is shiny gold colored. Unfortunately, shiny gold and silver packages are evil. I mean, not really, but really at the same time. Indeed they look nice, but they add a bit of an issue to my process. Indeed, scanning gold or silver foil packs presents a real problem. No matter what, there are wrinkles in the packaging, and ones I usually can use Photoshop to get rid of. However, these wrinkles when in a shiny foil wreak havoc with the scanner and the images come out extremely light and dark in spots. Anyway, just a little behind the scenes on what I do when putting out a post.
But back to the noodles. Pulmuone is kind of a health-minded company. Furthermore, I’m pretty sure all of their instant ramyun is non-fried. Initially, I remember talking to someone from their company mentioning that they have a big farm in South Korea where their vegetables come from. Moreover, they mentioned their founder many times and revered him. Finally, let’s have a look at this Pulmuone Non-Fried Spicy beef!
Pulmuone Non-Fried Ramyun With Spicy Beef Broth – South Korea
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). I also include this image. The one above is a photo and the second is a scan with a lot of filtering going on. Contains beef (how I am unsure; importing Southeast Asian beef, chicken and pork is against USDA, however exporting US beef, processing it in SE Asia and re-importing it isn’t – a lot of work but a way to get beef in your products). To prepare, add package contents to 2 1/2 cups boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A liquid base.
The vegetables sachet.
A colorful mixture.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, beef, spring onion and egg. Starting with the noodles, they have a thicker and wider gauge than ramyun. Moreover, this is the ‘new style’ it seems that all of the South Korean companies are going with. However, the style works very well and has an excellent chew. The broth had its points. So it was spicy and had a kind of beefiness, but it seemed like it was missing a salty taste. Finally, the included vegetables are excellent – the mushroom in particular. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 8801114132227.
