in a simple miso broth
with just spinach, Daikon, spring onions & pork
This is a quick Ramen Recipe
– Ramen noodles (Chinese noodles)
– Soy sauce
– Katakuriko (potato starch)
– Spring Onions
– thin pork slices
We had some Dashi from the day before so we just heated it up and added some soy sauce and Miso.
The broth is really important and I think it takes ages to learn it perfectly..
but still, here is what we did and it turned out really tasty! (especially the pork
> Dab off the moist from the pork with a kitchen paper and rub the slices with grated ginger then let it rest for 15 min. ( 5 min. are still ok if you are in a hurry or don’t like the strong flavour of ginger)
> boil the spinach quickly afterwards let it cool down in iced water
>Grate the Daikon, cut the spring onion (as you like)
>Heat up your dashi (made from Katsuo flakes & Kombu or instant Dashi) ad some Sake, soy sauce and Mirin and let it stir for abot 5 min
>Turn down the heat and add as much Miso as you like. Miso shouldn’t boil!
> Cover the pork slices with Katakuriko and put them in a pan with some sesame oil and garlic
> Add Sake, Mirin and soy sauce and cook both sides of the pork
For the final crispness we put our pork slices in the oven. If you have a grill it’s even simpler. We put the grill as high as possible in the oven and bake it only with top heat. Just putting the pork in an oven or grill will give them an extra taste!
Cook the ramen in water and place them in a large bowl when done.
Pour the Miso broth and add the spinach, the pork, the spring onions and the Daikon on the top.
In Japan it is common to flavor your Ramen with Shichimi Togarashi (seven spices) but only if you like it hot!!!
