Easy Homemade Ramen

Easy Homemade Ramen

My husband kept seeing ramen on TV and in streams he watched. One day he asked if I could make some easy homemade ramen – it would be a great new meal item. After some research and my friend Google, I learned there is a huge variety of options when making ramen. It really gives you the ability to be super creative.

I found one combination that we love the most. It is a super easy homemade ramen recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Beef Broth
  • Ramen Noodles
  • Bok Choy
  • Bean Sprouts
  • Steak
  • Mushrooms
  • Leeks
  • Garlic
  • Spices
  • Sesame Oil
  • Miso Paste

Tips When Making Easy Homemade Ramen:

  • For added flavor use Miso Paste. This ingredient is hard to find in some areas (like where I live) but in cities with large international sections this should be super easy to find. If you are on a low salt diet, skip this ingredient it is high in salt.
  • Don’t forget to boil the bean sprouts. I believe you can get sick from raw bean sprouts (or so I’ve been told).
  • If you don’t have chopsticks, you can eat this with a fork – it is just not so authentic.
  • Can’t find any good ramen noodles? In a pinch you can use the noodles in a “Mr. Noodle” or instant ramen. Just toss out the seasoning package.
  • You can substitute and change up any ingredients. This nice thing about ramen is the variety you can create.
  • Make sure everything is cut into bite size pieces but not too small. If you are using chopsticks it can make eating a little more complicated (and messy).

Below is the recipe in an easy to print format so you can bring it to the kitchen with you. If you want to save a tree, bring a tablet to the kitchen.

 

Easy Homemade Ramen

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 3-4 bowls

Ingredients

  • 1 container (or 2-3 cups) of Beef Broth (Chicken will work as well)
  • Ramen Noodles (any sort can work, I like Lo Mein Noodles)
  • 2 cup of Bok Choy (chopped into bit sized pieces)
  • 2 cup of Bean Sprouts
  • 2 cups of Steak (cut into thin bite sized pieces)
  • 2 cups of Mushrooms
  • 1 cup of Leeks (Green onions can work too, just a bit more potent)
  • 1 tbsp of Garlic
  • Spices
  • 1 tbsp of Sesame Oil (can be changed for any oil you prefer)
  • Miso Paste (can be made with, this just gives added flavour)

Instructions

  1. Boil 2 cups of water in a kettle (or pot). Add it to a bowl with your bean sprouts to cook them. Allow bean sprouts to sit in the boiled water for about 5 minutes, then drain. Set aside for garnish.
  2. Add your sesame oil to a wok or large skillet. Turn heat to medium-high.
  3. Once heated slightly, add your chopped mushrooms and garlic. Allow this to sweat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add your broth to the wok, stir all contents. (If you are using miso paste, this is when you would mix in about 1 tbsp). Allow to heat until simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  5. Add in the bok choy. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes (or until desired crunchiness of bok choy)
  6. While your broth mixture is simmering, cook seasoned steak to your liking in a separate pan. Once cooked, set aside.
  7. Bring a pot of water to a boil as well while your broth simmers. Cook ramen noodles as you desire. Drain.
  8. Grab your serving bowls (I like to use big cereal bowls). Add the cooked noodles. Ladle on teh broth mixture until the bowl is 3/4 full.
  9. Top with a few pieces of steak, a bit of leeks and bean sprouts (the amounts are to your taste).
  10. Grab your chopsticks and enjoy!
