Mazemen Ramen

There is literally nothing better than a bowl of ramen in the dead of winter. Lucky for you, now you don't have to leave the house to get it! We've engineered a few shortcuts to the ancient process that make it easy for you to satisfy a ramen craving in the comfort of your own home.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

1

Making your shoyu eggs

  • Place 2 quarts of water on the stove. Add eggs to the water and then turn heat on, to high. Set a timer for 12 minutes.
  • Remove the eggs after 12 minutes and place into an ice bath.
  • Once eggs are cool enough to handle, peel and place in a bath of shoyu or soy sauce.
  • Reserve until you're finishing each bowl of noodles.
2

Making your Shortcut Ramen Broth

  • Combine vegetable stock, chicken stock, soy sauce, mirin, miso, fish sauce and kombu in a tall pot.
  • Simmer over medium-high heat, reducing by half.
  • Once the broth has reduced, keep warm and season to taste.
3

Pan Roasting your Pork

  • Pan roast your pieces of pork over medium heat in a saute pan.
  • Once the sides and edges are golden brown and delicious-looking, remove from pan and keep warm.
4

Cooking and finishing your ramen noodles

  • In salted, boiling water, cook ramen for 3 minutes (or according to package directions)
  • Strain and place in a metal mixing bowl.
  • Add egg yolks and ramen broth to the noodles and toss vigorously but carefully. The end result should be more creamy than brothy.
  • Divide noodles between four bowls and top with pork, eggs, scallions, shiitake mushrooms, roasted corn and bamboo shoots.
  • Served immediately!
