Chapaguri Steak Ramen (Ram-don) Recipe

If you’re up-to-date on internet trends, then it’s certain that you came cross the viral “Ram-don” dish from the movie Parasite.

Chapaguri (also spelled as Jjapaguri) is actually a combination of two noodle dishes:  Jjapaghetti and Neoguri. Jjapagetti is made of black bean noodles served dry, while Neoguri is meant to be a spicy noodle soup. It was the movie “Parasite” that popularized the dish, with the addition of seared sirloin on top.

Just like the movie, Chapaguri is a case of two worlds colliding — a quick fix from the humble instant noodles, along with the luxury from the beefy steak. There’s a good reason why Ram-don became viral across the internet. It’s undeniably delicious, and anyone at home can make it in fifteen minutes or less.
