My attempt to make Tonkotsu Ramen

It has been a very, very long time since I created a post like this one. It’s a shame because I actually wanted this blog to have a more personal feeling to it, instead of spamming it with my many badly written reviews. I dare say that I lost sight of that and let myself go completely. I might as well do this now since there’s no Hajime no Ippo this week, but I certainly intend to make more of these posts.

Anyway, I decided to make a batch of homemade Tonkotsu Ramen (pork noodles). I had most of the ingredients lying around and decided to do it. I searched far and wide for a couple of Narutomaki slices but couldn’t find any. It’s too bad, but this will have to do. At least I managed to stumble upon a store that sold dashi stock (needless to say that I bought loads).

I basically sautéed the pork in a pan, boiled it in the dashi stock to make the broth and grilled it afterwards to add to the soup later. I then mixed in a little cabbage and bean sprouts and sautéed that in the same pan as I did the pork. Added a little bit of soy sauce and voila. All I needed was to add the cooked noodles into a bowl, followed by the broth, cabbage and bean sprouts, egg and of course the pork. It was absolutely delicious!
