Aussie Ramen

By: Naomi Sherman

There is a dish that went viral on TikTok using ramen noodles and Asian-style sauces. I wondered what would happen if I reinvented it with some simple ingredients that I think every student would have in their pantry. Did I expect it to be one of the tastiest dishes I’ve made? No. Did I realise that I would now be tossing a bowl together whenever I didn’t feel like cooking a full meal? No. Did both of these things happen? Absolutely! Seriously, try it yourself — it’s not just for students.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 1 pack instant ramen noodles
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg


  • Cook the ramen noodles until just tender.
  • Drain, but reserve ¼ cup of the noodle water.
  • Heat the butter in a small frying pan and add garlic.
  • Sauté until golden and fragrant.
  • Add the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce and sugar.
  • Stir for about 1 min to dissolve the sugar and form a sauce.
  • Add the noodles to the pan along with the noodle water and toss through.
  • Cook for 1-2 mins until the sauce thickens and coats the noodles.
  • Top with a fried egg to serve.
