serving dumplings | ramen

If you love to finish your day with a lot of flavor, then you might like this easy pork ramen for dinner. It’s more than just another Japanese dish, it’s for many a new obsession and lifestyle, great in all its flavors.
With this recipe I would like to share with you my obsession with ramen so that you can also serve this Japanese soup at home and slurp it straight from the bowl with an incredible enthusiasm.
The most important ingredients for a tasty recipe are broth, spices, ramen noodles and toppings, and I use them with respect for my obsession, with a bit of grace and ease. In this ramen you’ll find a lot of garlic, a piece of pork tenderloin braised to softness, then blended with vegetable broth. This broth is flooding a bowl laid with springy ramen noodles, and on top, thinly sliced shiitakes, a runny soft-boiled egg, toasted nori sheets and finely diced scallions. Have fun!
