Sean comes home and finds a care package from his Mommikins. Using those ingredients and a little pluck (a pack of Ramen), he comes up with a surprisingly delicious Ramen Hash Browns and Gravy.
Here's the Recipe:
1 packet of Ramen
½ large onion
½ green bell pepper
¼ cup of vegetable Oil
¼ cup of Flour
Vegetable/ Beef Stock
Start by breaking the brick of Ramen into eighths
Soak the ramen in cold water for about 15 minutes or until noodles are soft and easy to pull apart. Drain ramen and remove any excess moisture with a paper towel.
In a large pan melt butter over medium heat. Add Ramen and spread to cover the pan. Season with pepper, salt and paprika and let sit for 5 or so minutes-- until a crust has formed on the underside of Ramen.
When crust has formed, flip over and crust other side. (or you can fold inward to crisp entire hash brown)
Once it's crisped to your liking, you're done.
Take the ramen flavor packet and add it to a cup of water. Mix thoroughly. If you don't want to use the flavor packet and water for your gravy, use vegetable/ beef stock.
Chop onion and green pepper and sauté in a large saucepan with a teaspoon of vegetable oil until onion is soft and translucent.
Add In the rest of the oil and also add the flour and stir constantly until the mixture becomes a light brown color. (You're making a roux; if you don't cook it too long then all you'll taste is flour.)
Once your roux has reached the right color, add in the flavor-packet water (or vegetable/ beef stock) gradually and stir until a paste forms.
Add more water (or vegetable/ beef stock) if necessary to thin gravy and season to taste-- I used cilantro, rice wine vinegar, and pepper.
Bring to boil and reduce heat, let it simmer and thicken.
