5 stars from 1 rating of Improved Ramen Soup

Soup is one of the most comforting meals one can have. (That is of course, my opinion.) When you are sick and convinced that death might be better than the hacking cough, sore throat, and raging fever, along comes soup and you begin to feel sane again.

When the day is rainy and chilly, perhaps even snowy, soup has a way of flowing right to your core and warming you from head to toe.

Recently I had some soup made for me and when I ate it, Oh the world disappeared and it was just me and my love, soup. I did not want that bowl of soup to end. Luckily, my dear loved one gave me the recipe with not much of a struggle (people can be protective of good recipes - I know I am one of them) and so I share it with you today. It is a mild soup, with a delicate flavor. If you are a fan of this type of soup then you can try it.

You will need:

  • 1 pack of Ramen noodle soup (whichever flavor you prefer but shrimp was used in mine)
  • a cut of beef thinly sliced or in chunks, whichever you prefer
  • 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth
  • about three pieces of chicken - it doesn't matter the piece
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 cup of Bok Choy (this makes it taste great)
  • 6 - 10 brussel sprouts (optional)
  • 1 pimento pepper
  • five chunks of pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon of butter
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of ginger powder

In a pan place the chicken and beef along with the chicken broth and ginger powder and allow it to simmer for around fifteen minutes. Add the carrots, sliced in round circles (you know the round way) the brussel sprouts and the pumpkin. Grate the pimento and add that to the mix. Add the noodles from the Ramen pack and also the Ramen seasoning. At the last moment add the Bok Choy and butter. Let simmer until noodles are ready. Taste to see if it needs salt or pepper and add to your liking. If you think it is a bit too salty, add a little water to it to thin the soup. Serve hot and enjoy.

This makes about two big bowls of soup.I hope you enjoy it if you do try it; I sure enjoyed mine.
