Japanese Noodle Soup

This is a very easy and simple Japanese style ramen noodle soup. This is very cheap to make, and you can really customise this however you wish with the garnish.



  1. For the broth, add 700ml of chicken stock to a large boiling pot with the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, Chinese five spice, chili, and 300ml of water.
  2. Bring this to the boil, then turn the heat to low and simmer for around 5 minutes.
  3. Add a pinch of sugar and more soy sauce to taste
  4. Fry the pork chops until cooked.
  5. Hard boil 4 eggs.
  6. Cook the ramen noodles as per packet instructions.
  7. Strain the stock into another pan, then reheat.
  8. Divide ramen between 4 bowls, then top with 1 sliced pork chop, ¼ of the spinach (if applicable) sweetcorn, and one boiled egg (halved).
  9. Divide the stock into the bowls, then sprinkle over sesame seeds, shredded nori and the spring onion.
