On days like today when it's hot and nasty out, the last thing I feel like doing is firing up the old stove and cooking some fabulous Martha Stewart-esque meal.
Heck, I can't even bear the thought of waiting in line at a fast food place and carrying a hot, greasy bag back home.
This is when I like to pull out my handy "101 Things To Do With Ramen" cookbook. All the recipes are cheap and filling.
And you hardly have to leave the hammock to make them.
Yield: 2 servings
1 package ramen noodles, any flavor
1/2 pound pork strips
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup sour cream
Cook noodles in water according to package directions and drain.
In a frying pan, brown pork until done. Add tomato sauce, onion, paprika and noodles. Cook over low heat until onion is tender.
Stir in noodles. Remove from heat and add sour cream.
