I feel today’s recipe should get a lot of attention. Japanese love Ramen but I learned from my Taiwanese American husband and his friends that the Chinese love ramen even more! In most Japanese supermarkets you can buy an assortment of fresh ramen noodles with prepped soup base in the refrigerated section. The typical flavors available are shio (salt), shoyu (soy sauce), tonkotsu (pork stock), and miso. The different ramen flavors originated from different parts of Japan. Shoyu is from Kanto (Tokyo) area, tonkotsu from Kyushu in the south, and shio and miso are from Hokkaido in the north.
It may not be as perfect as your favorite ramen shop noodles, but homemade Chashu ramen is relatively easy and tastes pretty good!
My family eat mostly Japanese or Asian food at home, but once in a while I do cook American/western meals. Spaghetti Meatball is our kids’ favorite pasta, so for the sake of keeping recipes for my kids, I will add this recipe to my collection. This dish is super easy. It’s perfect meal for Monday dinner after having busy weekend.
