Decided on something different, quick, and easy last night. And it was just me for dinner. So I took a pack of the beef flavored Ramen noodles. Got 2 cups of water boiling and added the noodles. And let them cook until done. Then added the spice pack. And some rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sriracha sauce. Added by taste. Perhaps a tbs each of the rice wine vinegar and soy sauce. 1/2 tsp of the sesame oil. And 1 tsp of the sriracha sauce. Brought to boil. Added a cornstarch and water slurry to thicken, again. Just eye balled it. Added some large thawed cooked shrimp. And turned off the heat. I just wanted the shrimp to warm up.
I wish I could have added some diced green onions. But had none.

Also threw some frozen chicken and basil spring rolls in the oven. And made a dipping sauce with soy sauce, sesame oil, and a dash of sriracha sauce.

For a thrown together meal. It was flavorful and filling. The next time I make it. I'll record the amounts to share.

That is one good looking meal Dude!
We eat a lot of soups & as a matter of fact we have a northern bean soup in the crock pot as we speak.
I like your combo & will have to give it a try!
Nicely done!!

I made some soup last night too but didn't take any pictures. It was awesome though! Sadly no gravy.
Well no pics AND no gravy, it never happened. If you'd been able to slip some gravy in you might have enough credibility to get by without the pics but you can't be missing both.
