Yield: 4 appropriately, 2 obnoxiously
Spicy Pulled Pork Ramen.
Total Time:
30 mins
 
Ingredients
  • 10 to 12 ounces pulled pork shoulder, I used leftovers from THIS recipe
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces shitake mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups low-sodium chicken stock, or veg stock, or even beef stock!
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 blocks dried ramen noodles, seasoning packets removed
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced (I like to use a mandolin for this)
  • 2 or 4 eggs, soft boiled or poached
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic paste
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
Instructions
  1. First, if you want to cook pork specifically for this recipe, I recommend this oven roasted version or this slow cooker version.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once melted, add the mushrooms and garlic and toss. Cook until the mushrooms are soft and juicy, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, bring the stock to a simmer. Stir in the soy sauce and hoisin sauce. Cook your eggs too! I like to soft boil mine – but poaching is good too.
  4. Place the ramen blocks in two large bowls. Add the pork, scallions and a few cucumber slices to each bowl. Pour the stock over both blocks evenly and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes before stirring. Add mushrooms to each bowl and stir in a few more cucumber slices. At this point you could separate into two more bowls if you want 4 servings. Stir in the chili garlic paste (I do about a tablespoon per bowl for SPICY!) and add your egg and nori sheets. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and drizzle with toasted sesame oil. Serve immediately.
