I thought to continue this series of Prison Ramen Burrito Recipes that you couldn’t get in prison since you can’t get these varieties, the next logical step would involve Shin Ramen/Ramyun. I ended up with the standard Shin Ramen as well as Shin Black in this one. It ended up being an enormous monstrosity!
By the way – if you’re not familiar with my show, it’s on YouTube and for over a year, a new episode has come out every single day (well there was that one time where I pushed the wrong button but we won’t get into that). Join the regular commenters and say hi! I’m always happy to answer questions! Also, check out www.thechocolatebreak.com – my wife and I review chocolate as well.
Shin Ramen Burrito Prison Recipe – Instant Noodle Recipe Time – EP 457
Finished (click to enlarge). Okay so a lot going on here. Korean Chee-tos, Korean Spicy Sun Chips, Shin Ramyun, Shin Black, raw egg, gochujang, sesame seeds, spring onion – it’s pretty hardcore. You can do this! It’s really easy – just watch the video! Enjoy!
Big thanks to Nick Bizarro – I found Maruchan Texas Beef Ramen Noodle Soup on eBay a little while back and asked if anyone wanted to buy them (it was a 24 pack and I only wanted two) and he did!
So, what’s the big deal?
THE ALL TIME BEST PRISON RAMEN BURRITO IN THE WORLD! TEXAS BEEF!
The pack is clear to discourage smuggling contraband into prison – or, I suppose out of prison. You can only (usually) but these as a prison inmate. I contacted the distributor of these and they were incredibly uninterested and standoffish about getting samples to me.
“You can only purchase them from correctional facilities.”
“I have to be in a jail or prison to get them?”
“But say I don’t want to go to prison?”
“Then you’re not going to get these varieties, sir.”
It was sheer luck that I got these when I did. It’s been a search going on for over 5 years. I’ve heard mention of Texas Beef many times and though ‘what are these people talking about?!’ Not only that, the distributor as well as the manufacturer are incredibly tight lipped and not forthcoming with info on these. But they exist and many people in prisons have them every day.
Here’s my attempt at making a prison burrito. It should be noted that the noodles would most likely be cooked in a bag rather than on the stove, but This is how I did it. Also, you can substitute Maruchan Picante Beef Ramen for these – Maruchan said in an answer to a consumer question I saw that they’re the same thing. Curious if anyone will try their hand at this and send some pictures! I think I foresee people with their prison ramen burritos posing with them proudly flashing the peace sign. Enjoy!
