What do you do with leftover ramen broth and toppings? Make ramen rice of course!

Ramen Rice
serves 2
adapted from momofukfor2

1 1/4 cups ramen broth (i used 2/3 broth and 1/3 water)
1 cup rice (i used mix of white and brown rice)
1 tablespoon Miso Butter (mixture of butter and miso blended together)
1 cup of  each corn, lima Beans, or other veggies
Leftover ramen toppings (I used spent chicken, fishcakes, nori)
Green onion (for garnish)

Cook the broth (and water) with rice in a rice cooker. When the rice is almost done throw some Miso Butter in the fry pan with the veggies. Scoop rice out into the bowl and top with veggies, meat, fishcake, nori and green onion.

This is a tedious process but not very hard to do. Broth is something that is worth making when it’s main part of the dish such as ramen.

Broth:
Konbu, shitake mushrooms, pork neck (roasted and then into the broth), chicken leg, onion, green onion, carrot. Flavored with tare at the end to season and deepen the flavor!

Tare (yakitori bbq sauce):
Made with chicken back (roasted then into the broth), soy sauce, sugar.

Pork Belly:
Marinate overnight with salt, sugar and then roasted using 2 methods: high low, low high. Two different methods to cooking porkbelly: baked at high and then at low temperature for hours, or vice versa. I also covered the low high with parchment and cooked it for total for 3 hours. Which one if juicer and tastier? You be the judge.

Pork Shoulder:
Marinate overnight with salt, sugar and then slow roasted for 6 hours.

Pickled Shitake (mushrooms):
Spent from making the broth and then marinated in a small pot with vinegar, soya sauce, sugar, salt.

Slow Poached Eggs:
This didn’t turn out this time around but you can see from the previous post – Pan-roasted asparagus with miso butter.

Fishcakes:
Bought from the asian grocer and sliced.  This is not shown in the photo simply because I forgot until everyone left.

Seaweed:
Bought from the asian grocer as trimming. This is not shown in the photo simply because I forgot until everyone left.
