Nagoya-Style Super-Spicy Taiwan Ramen

Taiwan ramen is a regional ramen dish of Nagoya. It's a spicy and delicious ramen that can be made simply using store-bought noodles.

Ingredients: Serves 2

Uncooked ramen (ramen with soup packets)
2 bunches
Ground pork
Chinese garlic chives
1/2 bunch
Grated garlic
1/2 teaspoon
Japanese leek
2 teaspoons
Tianmianjiang - Chinese sweet bean sauce
2 teaspoons
Chinese soup stock or umami seasoning
a small amount


1. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan and add grated garlic and minced leek. Once fragrant, add 100g of the minced pork and cook.
2. Once the meat has cooked, add 2 teaspoons of doubanjiang and tianmianjiang and continue cooking (adjust the amount of doubanjiang to your liking.)
3. Cut the chives into 3cm pieces and add together with a little of the Chinese soup stock powder (or other seasoning), cook, then turn off the heat.
4. Boil the noodles.
5. Add the soup packet and measured boiled water to large soup bowls. Time it so that it's ready when the noodles are done.
6. Once the noodles have boiled, drain completely, then add to the soup.
7. After these preparations are finished, add the stock from Step 3 and it's complete. If you like it spicy, add ra-yu or ichimi spice.
8. Variation: In Step 2, add bean sprouts together with the chives for a delicious touch.
