Last week we met a group of friends, and we had proposed to make a ramen (or Japanese noodle soup) but with our own Creole style, so this post is a Colombian recipe for how to make your own homemade ramen. I clarify that the recipe is not mine but I liked it so much that I highly recommend it.
- Soy sauce
- Garlic powder
- Ramen noodles
- Leek onion
- Mushrooms (we use these instead of squid but if you like them you can change them)
Heat enough water in a pot to prepare the ramen pasta for the diners (a bag of ramen pasta makes about 3 dishes), add soy sauce (about 2 or 3 tablespoons per plate). in our case the preparation was for 12 people so we prepared a complete pot. At the same time bring the peas (about 2 tablespoons per plate) to a boil in another pot and chop the bell peppers (only 1 or 2 pieces per plate) and the carrots on sticks (one hand per plate).
After the soy water boils, add the ramen noodle packets and simmer for at least 10 minutes over high heat. At the same time, place the chopped carrots with soy in a pan over medium heat and let them cook while you chop the leeks and mushrooms (the proportions are the same for these 2 ingredients, that is, about 2 tablespoons per plate).
Add to the pan with the carrots, the chopped mushrooms and sauté with soybeans until the mixture is cooked. Then when the pasta is ready, remove it from the pot and drain it by throwing the water away. Next, we begin the preparation of the broth, heating in a pot enough water for the portions to be served with the leeks, a chicken breast bone, paprika and about 2 teaspoons of garlic powder.
While the broth is cooking, bring the eggs to a boil for 5 minutes (one egg per plate) and dice the pork and chicken. In a skillet put the pork with soy sauce and cook over medium heat until golden.
In another pan, repeat the cooking process in soybeans with the chicken and remove the eggs and peel them. Then when the broth is boiling, remove the chicken bone and turn off the stove. At this point we have all the ingredients cooked and ready to be mixed.
To serve in soup plates, start by adding a tablespoon of soy sauce to the bottom of the plate, then place the noodles and a portion of each of the ingredients prepared to your liking, and finally when everything is on the plate, serve the broth and voila, Creole ramen to enjoy!
