Recipe Inspired from JustOneCookbook.com
Ingredients
  • 2 Servings of ramen noodles
Soup
  • 1 Tb. sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 in ginger peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp Sriracha
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups dashi stock
  • 2 ½ Tb. soy sauce
  • ½ Tb sake
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
Toppings
  • 1 soft boiled egg
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 2 Nori sheets
  • A few slices of naruto fish cake
  • Shiraga Negi
  • 4-5 pieces steamed shrimp
  • 1 bok choy
  • Bean sprouts lightly steamed
Instructions
  1. Prep all the toppings and have them ready, since the noodles cook pretty quickly. About 2-3 minutes.
  2. Begin getting a large pot of water boiling for the ramen noodles, so when you're ready, cook noodles.
  3. In another large pot, saute chopped garlic and ginger in sesame oil and saute for a few minutes. Don't burn garlic.
  4. Add sriracha and stir.
  5. Add the rest of the soup Ingredients; chicken and dashi stock, soy sauce, sake, salt and sugar. Stir well and simmer for a few minutes.
  6. Next, drain the soup stock through a mesh strainer or cheese-cloth and return soup back to pot and discard ginger/garlic mixture.
  7. Keep soup simmering until ready. Begin cooking ramen noodles. I took Nami's advice and cooked the noodles a minute or so less than needed because the hot stock will cook them more.
  8. Place noodles in bowl first, then add soup stock and garnish with all the toppings.
