What Is Tik Tok?

If you’re following this blog and fit the age demographic of most Tipsy Housewife followers you may or may not be familiar with Tik Tok. Tik Tok is a newer social media platform that features short, one minute max videos on basically any topic. I follow along because of the food videos I learn so much from. This Tik Tok Ramen recipe is one video that went “viral” which means it was showing up in millions of videos . Sometimes these videos are a joke and the recipes turn out to be a ridiculous flop, but I decided to give this one a chance anyway. I am glad I did because this one is addicting and delicious.

Simple Ingredients

You need very few ingredients for this recipe that you will likely have on hand.

  • 1 package of ramen
  • soy sauce
  • brown sugar
  • everything but the bagel seasoning
  • dried red pepper flakes
  • butter
  • 1 egg

These ingredients may seem unusual to you, but trust me, the combine to make the most delicious snack you have ever tasted!

The Steps Are Simple

You simply boil the ramen noodles and discard the seasoning packet or save it for something else. You melt the butter and combine it with the brown sugar, soy sauce and chili flakes. You add the cooked noodles, add an egg and then top it all with the everything but the bagel seasoning. There is a complete and printable recipe linked below with exact measurements and steps. The Tik Tok version of this recipe has you scramble the egg in the ramen, but I prefer to fry and egg and use a round cookie cutter to make it a perfect circle and place the fried egg on the top of the dish. You can choose to make it however you enjoy the egg, the recipe is still delicious.

This recipe makes a great snack or light meal, you can also adjust the brown sugar, soy sauce and spices to your own preferences. I also sometimes add green onions. I hope you enjoy making and eating this “trendy” recipe!

Tik Tok Viral Ramen Recipe

This recipe went viral after people showed themselves making it on the Tik Tok app. The ingredients seem unusual, but actually yield an addictive recipe that you will crave.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 package of inexpensive ramen
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • dried chili pepper flakes
  • everything but the bagel seasoning
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter

Instructions

  1. Open the ramen and discard the seasoning packet or set it aside to use for something else. Boil the ramen noodles in one cup of water then drain.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet and then add the brown sugar and cook on low until the butter and brown sugar are melted into one another.
  3. Add the soy sauce and the red chili pepper flake. Add as much chili flake as you like.
  4. Add the drained ramen noodles to the pan and sauté until the noodles are covered in the sauce.
  5. Make a little room on the side of the skillet and crack and egg, scramble the eggs then toss it into the ramen noodles. Alternatively, you can fry an egg separately and top the ramen with a fried egg instead. I use a round cookie cutter to make a perfectly round fried egg with the yolk in the center. Scrambled is delicious too.
  6. Add your ramen to a bowl and top with a sprinkle of the everything but the bagel seasoning and some green onions if you choose.
