Parasite's "Ram Dam"

"Made famous by arguably one of the best films of the last decade-- Ram Dam is something special. It's upsettingly delicious and makes no sense-- which is why it's so good. The mixture of cheap packaged udon and high quality ribeye mirrors themes of the film and it's mixture of social classes. A beautiful dish. Here's my take on it."

Recipe Card


  • 16 ounces high quality Ribeye
  • 2 packages Spicy Seafood Flavored Udon Noodles
  • 2 packages Beef Flavored Ramen
  • 2 tablespoons Black Bean Sauce With Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 thumb-sized Ginger
  • 1 cups Water


  • Step 1

    Start by pouring the spicy seafood seasoning into about 4 cups of water and bringing to a boil. Save the beef seasoning for something else. Add the udon and ramen and gently stir till cooked fully. Set aside to rest.

  • Step 2

    Lightly salt the steak-- don't over salt it though, there's a lot of sodium in everything going into this dish-- you just want to make sure that the beef has some depth to it. Sear the steak in a hot pan for a nice crust on both sides. Cook till it's rare in the center.

  • Step 3

    Rest the steak for about 5 minutes before cubing it up and adding it back into the pan. Mince the ginger and throw it in. Add the black bean sauce, hoisin and a cup of water. Allow this to reduce slightly before mixing in with all the noodles.
