There are many different ways to cook ramen. It can be a very laborious process because many of the ingredients need preparation before they can be incorporated with the ramen.
For example, There is a special process for the the broth, for the meat and yes, even for the egg!
I opted to make everything as easy as possible without compromising the quality of my recipe.
I didn't have to prepare the broth because I made the dry ramen recipe. Still very yummy but one less step. I soft boiled the eggs which took about 6 to 7 minutes. It's perfect!
I prefer noodles to have a bite to it. Mine came out perfect at just 5 minutes. Different noodles have different cooking times. Make sure you always subtract 1 to 2 minutes for the noodle cooking time if you prefer yours with a body.
For me, the following are the things that make a good, tasty ramen:
- Hot and spicy
- Noodle is not soggy
- Broth (if any) is bursting with flavor
- Meat is tender and flavorful
- Egg is tender and soft boiled
- All flavors compliment the overall taste
- The garlic is toasty
- The vegetables are rarely cooked
- There is a fatty ingredient mixed in
