If you arrived at this site with the one simple question, “Can you make ramen noodles in an Instant Pot?”, the answer is “Yes, you absolutely can!” With that question answered, let’s move to the next level, and help you turn your humble noodles into something spectacular.
When I think of ramen noodles, the first thing that comes to mind is the square dried brick of noodles that comes with a dubious foil seasoning packet, most of which is salt. If that is your only experience with ramen, you are missing something special.
First, when you pair the noodles with a homemade broth, it is immediately transformed into a glorious bowl of noodle soup. Add in vegetables, a protein such as chicken, beef, tofu and/or a hard-boiled egg, and now you have a hearty dish that is super easy to make.
Finally, layer in seasonings such as sesame oil, curry, spicy sriracha and some fresh herbs, and any memory of that dehydrated pack of seasoning is long gone.
Making the perfect bowl of ramen soup is a specialty in many restaurants around the world. But you don’t have to be a professional chef to get amazing results.
If you are an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker fan, you can get even better results more quickly because making that fresh fragrant broth couldn’t be easier.
Here are a few Instant Pot Ramen Soup recipes, all with a different twist, for a little inspiration to get you started.
