Miso Ramen

Next to shoyu ramen, miso ramen is my hands-down fav Japanese noodle soup. For this recipe, I use the same broth and condiments as the ones I use for making Shoyu ramen, but also add a heaping tablespoon of a miso tare mixture (miso, mirin, garlic, ginger and a little bit of spicy bean paste) to each bowl. I like serving ramen soup in ceramic bowls (e.g., Korean dolsot stone bowls, available through Amazon or at your local Korean market if you happen to have one), since they can be heated directly over a burner. But, no worries - serve in whatever bowl you have, so long as the broth is piping hot!

Miso Tare (use 1 heaping tablespoons of miso tare per serving bowl):
1/2 cup Awase Miso (Aka+Shiro Miso), Sendai or other aged red miso
3 tbsp. mirin
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 tsp. ginger, grated
1 tsp. tobanjiang (spicy bean paste)

1 lb. Ramen noodles

Ramen broth*
Soy sauce eggs*
Soy braised pork belly*
Blanched spinach*

Dash of sesame oil
Sliced scallions

*Recipes for these ingredients can be found here

1. Make the ramen broth, soy sauce eggs, braised pork belly and blanched spinach (above link will take you to those recipes in my post for Shoyu Ramen).

2. Combine the Miso Tare ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

3. Cook the ramen noodles according to directions, drain, and set aside.

4. Pour 2 ladles (about 2 cups) of hot ramen broth into each ceramic serving bowl. Place each bowl over a burner on medium high heat and bring the broth to a boil. 

5. Stir 1 heaping tablespoon of the miso tare into each serving bowl; add 1/4 of the cooked ramen noodles into each bowl and bring to a boil. 

6. Garnish each bowl with a halved soy sauce egg, sliced soy braised pork belly, some blanched spinach, a dash of sesame oil, and sliced scallions. 

Ladle 2 cups of ramen broth into each ceramic bowl, place on burners, and bring to a boil. 

Add 1 heaping tablespoon of the miso tare to each bowl.

Add the ramen noodles to the bowls and bring to a boil.

Garnish with soy sauce eggs, sliced soy braised pork belly, a dash of sesame oil, 
blanched spinach and sliced scallions.
