My Wife and I make ramen fairly regularly,

Here's our go to dashi recipe:


Quart of chicken broth,
2 cups water,
2 sheets of musubi Nori
4 or 5 #aki mushroom caps
3 cloves garlic
shredded carrot (about half a large carrot, save the other half for ramen)
1/2 yellow onion, sliced to large pieces
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp sesme seed oil
salt/pepper to taste

bring to a boil and let simmer for an hour or two or three,
strain through cheese cloth and retain broth.

I usually do pork cutlets fried with panko, some shredded carrot some spinach, some green onions and I bring a pot of water to boil and crack a couple eggs for the added protein.

Pretty good traditional dashi (for the most part) maybe not as light as some, but tasty.

Hardly looks "easy peasy" to me...for ramen noodles.

What, aren't there about 47 steps and 12 different pots and pans in that video??

"Easy peasy" is relative. Sometimes it's lost in translation.

Speaking of which: Engrish is bad enough--but when Google Translate is used, things can go off the rails pretty fast. "Cheap, fast and easy" can mean many things. Here's one example:

LOL!! That's hilarious!

Is that real?

Yes it is.

You can confirm this by doing a google image search on "soup for sluts." You'll find lots of different pics of this stuff.

I keep this stuff at home for those times I want to feel like a real slut.


Oh, and it gets worse:

I'm still determined to try it at some point. Though it's going to take just as much mental preparation for me as kitchen prep.

I was telling one of my supes the other day how if I could do it all over again I'd like to start scrubbing dishes and work my way up to chef.

Oh, but dreams being what they are, fleeting and only meant to be enjoyed in the passing moments..

Okay...

Cover me...I'm goin' in!

Bought a bunch of stuff today to "attempt" ramen noodles.

My version will be chicken and beef stock cooked with radish, mirin, garlic and white pepper. Then I will add rice noodles (not wheat) and some roasted jowl, along with fresh radish, scallions, carrots, and some fresh cilantro in lieu of lemon grass. I will also add some Yakasoba sauce and some other ingredients to taste.

This is a test batch, and it tastes fantastic right now.

I only made 4 cups (i might add some more liquid). The fish sauce really gives it a hook.

I'm making mine in cast iron (fired). Haven't made the noodles yet, but I will.

I threw a couple roasted chicken wings in the pot too, just for good measure.

Tasted it, and it is devine!

Will top with sliced radish, carrot slivers, blanched pork jowl, green onions and sliced boiled egg.

Wow...this is turning out nicely. Fair amount of prep, but it's going to be GOOD!!

Sounds great, and a success story inspires me to give it a shot.

Wonderful choice of toppings as well!

It really came out nicely, and I enjoyed it very much.

It was your post which made me look into the real stuff. Much of my time in Asia was spent in SE Asia, and everything is fried there (or Wok'd). I had heard about real ramen from some of the guys who were up in Japan, but I was never there long enough to try the real stuff.

Have you had real ramen not the packaged stuff? A lot of people haven’t.

a reply to: incoserv



Probably not. I'm thinking of the stuff comes in a plastic bag or a styrofoam cup and you add water.

Yeah that’s fake ramen.

Real ramen is where there’s a specialist chef usually Japanese who cooks a special broth for 6-8 hours, the noodles are hand made, there’s high quality meat and veggies, etc.

Seek out a ramen restaurant sometime in a major city. The good ones are amazing.

Word of advice peeps. Don’t get ramen at a non ramen focused Japanese restaurant. It will usually be only halfway decent at best.

I’ve been to about half of these spots in nyc.
