Pan Fried Instant Noodles

Pan fried noodles are a cross of having your favorite pack of instant noodles without the broth. This allows a more concentrated flavor to the dish and the flexibility of being creative of the variety of vegetables to add. I’ve done my fair share of pan fried instant noodles, but I have come across one of my best noodle dishes for that savory umami flavor perfect just for any meal of the day.
