Ramen

As my household is big on flavors from Japan, I thought I would try my hand at making ramen. Slightly spicy, salty, and surprising more filling than I had originally thought. Although this is a recipe with a few steps, it is quite easy to make. With an assembly portion as well this is a great recipe to make with children.

 

What you need

For the stock.

2 cups of water
3 cups of beef stock
2 cloves of garlic
4 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of worsterchire sauce
2 teaspoons of chili powder (less or none if you want less spice)
1 tsp of sugar
1 slice of ginger

For the components

Ramen noodles. 1 pack per person
chicken that has been cut into strips or small pieces
1 tsp corn per bowl
1 hard boiled egg per bowl, peeled and halved
pieces of cut up sea weed
green onions chopped fine
Bok choy boiled until leaves are just wilting

What to do

For your stock combine all of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Once it hits the boil bring it down to simmer on low heat until we are ready to use it.

Taste it and if it is too sweet add soy sauce, if it is too salty add some more sugar. This is also where you can add more chili powder to it.

For the components
Cook the ramen on stovetop according to the directions. Once done set aside.
Take the chicken and add it to a pan with some garlic and 2 tbsp of soy sauce. Fry them until they are cooked all the way through, then set aside.

Assembly

Take a bowl and place your noodles in it. Next place all the toppings except the green onion and egg. Then pour your desired amount of hot broth on top. I like to fill mine half way. Then add the Egg and green onion on top.

Enjoy!
