You have so many options when it comes to Ramen Bowls.. toppings, proteins..
This is my take on Ramen Bowls - PS Don't forget the eggs!!!! I did!!!
3 Pounds of Pork Belly - skin on
1 Can Spam - Cooked in a pan with a little butter and sliced
5 Tsp Sea Salt
2 Tsp Black Pepper
4 Tsp Brown Sugar
12 Cups Beef Stock - no salt added
3 Tbsp Ginger - Grated
5 Cloves Garlic - Grated
6 Tbsp White Miso
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
3 Tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
6 Packets Ramen - I used Shin Brand - remove packets just use noodles - cook the way it says on package - You can also use any low carb option noodle as well.
6 Soft Boiled Eggs - I use my egg machine for this.. it really comes in handy!
Topping Ideas - Baby Corn, Bok Choy, Corn Kernels, Scallions, Bean Sprouts, Nori, Hot Sauce, Chili Garlic Sauce etc.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a large wide bowl add salt, sugar and crushed black pepper.
Remove Pork from packaging and tap dry with a paper towel. Using the top of your knife score the skin every half inch at a diagonal, repeat in the opposite direction to create a diamond pattern.
Add the pork belly to the bowl with the salt, sugar and pepper, turn once to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Remove pork from seasoning and brush off any excess seasoning. Place the pork skin side up on a baking dish. Roast the pork on the middle rack of the oven. You are going to want to roast it for about 30 minutes until its nice and golden brown. Reduce the temperature of the oven to 275 degrees and let it cook for another hour or until tender. Once done transfer to a cutting board to rest before cutting.
In a large stock pot bring the stock to a boil over high heat.
Add ginger, garlic, miso, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil. Once the stock comes to a boil reduce heat to medium/low and simmer, stirring occasionally while the miso dissolves. This will l take about 5/10 minutes.
Now cut that pork belly into slices!!
Now get your bowls!!! Lets start assembling!!!
Divide your ramen between all the bowls, add your broth, pork, spam, eggs, and your toppings!
Hope you enjoy!
