Use meat... but the right kind of meat
To turn your paltry package into a full-blown meal, adding meat is a natural play... unless you are a vegetarian, then disregard this entry. But it's important to use meat that would complement the flavor profile of the ramen you are using as a base -- we used cheap char siu from a Chinatown market for a tonkotsu (pork broth) instant ramen (above).
"Braised pork, thinly sliced ham, beef -- look, you can add almost anything here, your leftovers, whatever. But it's important you don't do anything that contrasts in a bad way. Chopped-up corned beef in chicken broth would be stupid. Unless you are stoned, or something."
