In the world of quick and satisfying meals, few can rival the delightful combination of ramen noodles and fresh, crunchy cabbage in a stir-fry. This Ramen Cabbage Stir-Fry recipe is a flavor-packed dish that combines the comfort of ramen with the vibrant, crunchy texture of cabbage, all tossed in a savory sauce.

1. Ramen Cabbage Stir-Fry Recipe


  • 2 packages of ramen noodles (discard the seasoning packets)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small head of green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Sweet chili sauce, for serving (optional)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the ramen noodles and cook according to the package instructions, about 2-3 minutes, until al dente. Drain the noodles and set aside.

In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over high heat.

Add the sliced cabbage and onion to the hot oil. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the cabbage and onion start to soften and become slightly charred.

Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the skillet. Stir-fry for an additional minute, until fragrant.

Pour in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Toss everything together to coat the vegetables evenly.

Add the cooked ramen noodles to the skillet and continue to stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, or until the noodles are heated through and well combined with the vegetables.

If using, sprinkle in the crushed red pepper flakes and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Serve the Ramen Cabbage Stir-Fry hot, with a drizzle of sweet chili sauce on top, if desired.

This Ramen Cabbage Stir-Fry is a delightful fusion of flavors and textures. The crunchy cabbage and tender ramen noodles create a satisfying base, while the savory soy sauce, tangy rice vinegar, and aromatic garlic and ginger provide a flavorful balance. The optional sweet chili sauce topping adds a sweet and spicy element that takes the dish to new heights.

You can customize it by adding your favorite proteins, such as shredded chicken, tofu, or even scrambled eggs. You can also experiment with different types of cabbage, such as Napa or red cabbage, to change up the texture and color.
