Ridiculously Practical Meals: Ramen Bowls

Share it Please

My husband and I love Ramen bowls, but I've never made them myself before. This weekend I thought I'd try to make a traditional Ramen as a surprise for my husband. I wasn't totally confident about how it would turn out, but to my delight it was delicious!
I could never have come up with a delicious Ramen recipe on my own, but I found the wonderful blog Japanese Cooking 101 run by the talented Noriko and Yuko. The only thing I changed from their recipe was that I didn't have time for my pork to marinate over night, so I only marinated it for about 4 hours. I'm sure it would have been more tender if given a full 24 hours, but I think it turned out great regardless! Plus I made the soup from scratch, I didn't even buy broth! I'm one happy camper. This is a little more time consuming than the recipes I normally post - maybe a weekend night recipe - but it's definitely worth it!

One last tip, bean sprouts are hard to find! I was able to get them at my local Whole Foods, but the other grocery stores in my area didn't have them. If you don't have a Whole Foods see if you have a local Asian foods market.

  1. Ugh you're making me hungry !! These look so delicious and I agree are so easy to make when you have some noodles in your cupboard. I've made pick n mix noodle bowls for years and I've never yet been disappointed.
