Low Carb Diet (Ramen with Shirataki Noodles)

Low Carb Diet (Ramen with Shirataki Noodles)

I used shirataki noodles instead of wheat noodles for a low-carb easy ramen. It has plenty of vegetables too, so your stomach and heart are both satisfied!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Thinly sliced pork belly
60 g
Bean sprouts
1 bag
1/2 head
Enoki mushrooms
1 pack
Dried wakame seaweed
2 tablespoons
5 g
Simmered boiled eggs
Daikon radish sprouts
1/2 pack
Shirataki noodles (konnyaku noodles)
180 g
Garlic (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon
Boiling water
600 ml
Oyster soy sauce
1 tablespoon
30 g


1. Drain the shirataki noodles and wash well. Drain into a colander or sieve, and cut the noodles into half.
2. Pan-fry the shirataki noodles without oil in a frying pan for about 10 minutes to evaporate the water. (This also gets rid of the distinct odor of the noodles.)
3. Cut the pork into 1 cm pieces. Cut the root ends off the enoki mushrooms. Cut off the root ends of the daikon radish sprouts and rinse.
4. See Recipe ID: 2080710 for the simmered boiled egg recipe.
5. Stir-fry the pork in a wok without oil until it's browned. Add finely chopped garlic and stir fry until fragrant, then add bean sprouts and lettuce, and stir-fry quickly.
6. Add boiling water, and flavor with Weipa and oyster sauce sauce. Add stir-fried shirataki noodles and the dried wakame seaweed to finish.
7. Transfer to bowls, top with the menma, simmered boiled egg and radish sprouts and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

My husband's triglyceride levels are high, so to take care of his weight, we decided to try a low-carbohydrate diet.
I thought up this recipe so that he can enjoy his favorite ramen.
