Kylie Jenner is a business mogul, reality star and – according to TikTok – instant ramen fan.

While scrolling through TikTok recently, I discovered videos of a pasta recipe that Kylie Jenner shared on his Snapchat in 2016, according to BuzzFeed. Creators like Vincent Yeow Lim, whose TikTok handle is @dimsimlim, have tried the recipe. As of Tuesday, Lim’s video, which shows him cooking the dish on a lit stove, has racked up more than 3.8 million views since it was posted on April 13.

As Insider’s Anneta Konstantinides gave her stamp of approval to “The Kardashians” star’s twist on avocado toast, I was curious to see if this Jenner-loved instant ramen recipe would also live up to the digital hype.

According to a video by TikTok creator Vincent Yeow Lim, the ramen recipe only requires four ingredients — all common pantry staples.

For this dish, you will of course need a packet of instant ramen, plus three other ingredients commonly found in a pantry:

  • garlic powder;
  • Butter;
  • Two eggs.

I went for Nissin Demae’s Ramen Spicy Noodles. I love spice in my food. As the recipe was described as creamy, I figured I’d like to flavor with a kick for my version.

When my water came to a boil, I added the dry noodles and cooked for three minutes.

How to cook instant noodles? Every package of instant noodles I’ve tried has instructions printed on the package, including the amount of cooking time.

This package noted three minutes for the noodles. While they boiled, I used a clean fork to gently separate the large piece of noodles so they cooked evenly.

After the pasta was cooked I added the raw egg and to be honest it didn’t look appetizing.

This step was not the most appetizing part of the recipe.

The next step was to add the raw egg mixture.

After the pasta was cooked, I took the pan off the heat and poured in half the water. I did it with the eyes, so I estimated a little less than half.

The next step was to add the raw egg mixture.

Visually I wasn’t a fan – it didn’t look like the egg and water were mixing into a consistent soup. I am also, admittedly, a person who has mixed feelings about eggs in general. So there’s a good chance this was a day when eggs weren’t attractive to me.

I stirred the egg noodle mixture and water, but I didn’t like the thick texture of the egg whites.

I spilled some of the egg water.

Looking into the pot, I wasn’t excited to drink egg water and instant noodles with chunks of egg whites.

I poured more liquid to make the texture more to my liking.

I drizzled the oil from the instant ramen packet on top – and bon appétit! The final product.

Looking at my finished product, I couldn’t wait to delve deeper. Despite my skepticism midway through the recipe, the dish looked delicious. Gone is the water with eggs and, in its place, the proper seasoning.

The recipe took about 15 minutes, including the time it took to take pictures of each step. Without this documentation, it would have taken much less time.

I really enjoyed the creamy soup and noodles, but the egg white chunks – a result of my proportions being wrong – weren’t my favorites. Next time I do this, I’ll do things a little differently to make sure the texture is better.

I liked the noodles a little bit but then got put off by how slimy the noodles were.

I was put off by the egg white pieces.

Initially, I was a big fan of the soup’s creamy texture and thickness, thanks to the addition of butter and eggs.

That all changed when I discovered egg whites oozing tangled up in the middle of a spoonful of pasta and the texture was not to my liking.

I remembered that the egg was boiled in the hot soup.

When I rewatched Lim’s video to see how my plate compared, I noticed that he added two eggs directly to the pan after two blocks of instant noodles had been cooked. In the meantime, I just added a packet of noodles and pre-beat the egg, which probably curdled them in the hot water. No wonder it wasn’t exactly the same result as TikTok!

Some of these unappetizing moments for me probably shouldn’t be like this. I decided I would make this instant noodles again – but watch out for my egg volume.
