INGREDIENTS TIPS

BROTH
The key to a GREAT homemade ramen is a delicious broth – so many of you ask me what my go to broth is, and I always use Kettle & Fire. They use pasture raised chicken bones, 100% grass fed and finished beef bones, and high quality ingredients that make their cooking broths and bone broths so delicious!

I’ve been a longtime user of Kettle & Fire broths and I’m beyond excited to partner with them to bring you 20% your entire order using code “CJEATS“!

NOODLES
In this recipe, I am using fresh ramen noodles from Sun Noodle. I got them from 99 Ranch. If you cannot find fresh ramen noodles, you can always substitute with dried noodles instead.

SOY SAUCE CHICKEN
I topped my ramen off with a simple Soy Sauce Chicken recipe – this is completely optional. You can top with a different protein of your choice or leave it out completely!

TOPPINGS
I topped mine with the following but you can add whatever your favorite toppings are!
Marinated Soy Sauce Chicken
Soft boiled egg
Sliced fish cake
Scallions (to get the restaurant style curly scallions, cut them to thin strips and soak in ice water until they curl)
Nori
Sesame seeds
Togarashi seasoning

MSG
As always, MSG is optional!

RECIPE TIPS

COOK THE RAMEN IN WATER FIRST!
I highly recommend you cook the ramen noodles in WATER before you place them in the broth. I don’t like to cook the noodles directly in the broth because I want to avoid any starches from the noodles being released and impacting the taste of the broth.

DRAIN NOODLES WELL
After cooking the ramen noodles, make sure to thoroughly drain the noodles – you want to avoid any excess water, otherwise this will dilute the broth flavor.

SOY SAUCE CHICKEN
During the last 5 minutes of cooking, baste some of the excess marinade over the skin to get that beautiful, glossy color!
