You Can Make This At Home! Ramen Noodles with Soy Sauce Flavored Soup
This is slightly spicy soy sauce soup based ramen that is made without using store bought soup. I say spicy, but it's at a level where kids can eat it. Please make it as spicy as you like! Also please check out "Homemade Miso Ramen" (Recipe ID: 269751)!
Char siu pork, menma (pickled bamboo shoots), and other toppings to taste
Heat water for both the noodles and soup. Finely chop the garlic and ginger. Cut the topping ingredients and have them ready to go.
Heat a pan, add sesame oil, minced garlic, ginger, and doubanjiang, and sauté.
Once the garlic has produced an aroma, add the ○ marked ingredients, season to taste, and strain.
Boil the noodles until slightly hard, transfer to bowls, and pour the soup from Step 3.
Add red chili oil if you like, plus your favorite toppings, and enjoy!
Story Behind this Recipe
Store-bought ramen sauce just seems to have so many additives...
- Make sure to prepare the toppings beforehand so that the noodles don't soften too much. - My ramen bowls are a bit small, so increase the amount of soup when using a bigger bowl. 1 1/3 cloves/knobs of garlic/ginger, 3/5 tablespoon doubanjiang, 4 cups water; 1 1/3 teaspoons each of Chinese soup stock granules, sake, salt, and sugar; a little less than a teaspoon of Japanese dashi stock, 2 1/2 plus tablespoons of soy sauce. (I calculated this by multiplying the amounts in the recipe by 4/3.)
