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!
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.
