Campfire Grilled Ramen is a easy and simple survivalemergency food. You can make it in just a few minutes with little fuss or mess. You can use any heat source, but an open flame or charcoal works the best.

Ramen is great for survival cooking.  It’s cheap, easy to store, doesn’t take a lot of ingredients or dishes to cook and can be cooked with any type of heat source. It makes a top notch survival cooking ingredient for sure!



  1. Marinate ramen cake in sauce (see below for sauce suggestions), flipping to be sure of absorption throughout the noodle cake (about 20 mins, just enough time to get your fire going).
  2. Ramen cake is ready to be grilled when it has become tender, but still cohesive.
  3. Place on medium flame grill (charcoal is best).Lift corner every minute or so to look for char marks (about 3 minutes). A little smoke should inform you that it’s about ready to flip.
  4. Flip when it’s getting crunchy and black/golden brown spots cover one side. Be sure to detach the whole thing with your spatula before moving it, or else the cake may pull apart, creating a much less appetizing mess (and frustration).
  5. Serve plain or with chives, scallions, grilled tofu or veggies, etc. If there is any remaining marinade drizzle it over top of the noodles
  6. The grilled ramen cake will have chewy spots and moist spots, but every bite will be flavorful and fun to eat.

For “Grilled Ramen Sauce” you basically just need a concoction that is somewhat syrupy, so it glazes the noodles, watery enough to be absorbed by the noodles, slightly sweet, so it caramelizes, and packed with tangy flavors that will compliment the charred spots.
A lazy method: use 1/3 cup of hot water to dilute 1/3 cup of your favorite asian sauce/marinade like terriaki, szechuan, etc.
Whisk together the following ingredients:

  1. Flavor packet from ramen
  2. 2 tblsp soy sauce
  3. Squirt of sriracha (or favorite hot sauce) to taste
  4. Couple dashes of rice vinegar (or lemon or lime juice)
  5. A few drops of toasted sesame oil
  6. ½ tsp sugar
  7. ¼ cup of hot water
  8. A sprinkling of sesame seeds (optional)
