Turns out you can make homemade ramen without JUST following the package directions.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients:

  • 3 packets (300g) Nissan Tonkotsu Instant Ramen (we’ll be using all 3 noodle discs, one packet of oil, and 1-2 packets of seasoning, or to taste)3 oz (85g) guanciale, finely diced 

  • 3 egg yolks

  • ½ cup (57g) freshly grated Pecorino Romano, plus more for garnish

  • ½ cup (57g) freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano, plus more for garnish

  • Salt and pepper to taste   

Method:

  1. Place a large pot over high heat, and bring to a boil. 

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil from the Nissan Tonkotsu oil packet in a large saucier pan over medium heat. Add the guanciale and cook until the fat renders and the pork is nicely browned, about 5-6 minutes. Remove the guanciale from the pan and set aside, keeping the pork fat in the pan.

  3. Add ramen noodles to the water and boil until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, then drain pasta and add to the skillet with the pork fat set over medium-low heat. 

  4. Toss the noodles in the fat and then add the egg yolks, 1-2 seasoning packets (or to taste) and the cheeses. Keep tossing and adjust with spoonfuls of pasta water to emulsify the sauce. Check the seasoning, serve and enjoy.
