Yakimiso Ramen

Kururi, one of the most famous miso ramen shops in Tokyo, one day suddenly shut its doors. No one really knew why, as they had a constant hour-long line every day of the year. Some people said the master was just tired of making ramen. Though no one knows his secret recipe, one technique he used was to stir-fry the soup in a wok before serving. This concentrates the flavors and makes the ramen extra hot (in temperature, not spiciness). Recreate this crowd-drawing technique at home with this unique recipe.

  • Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Blanch the bean sprouts in the boiling water for 20 seconds. Drain.
  • In a wok, heat a bit of vegetable oil over high heat. Stir-fry the bean sprouts with a little salt and pepper.
  • Add the miso tare and soup to the wok. Continue to cook over high heat for a few minutes.
  • With all your ingredients ready to go, bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook the noodles. Ramen that has been cut to a standard thickness (about 1 mm) will cook in 1 to 2 minutes.
  • About 30 seconds before the noodles are finished cooking, ladle the soup and bean sprouts into the ramen bowls.
  • Drain the noodles, taking care to shake off as much excess water as you can. Carefully place some noodles in each bowl of soup, keeping them tidy.
  • Place 1 or 2 slices of chashu and a sprinkle of negi neatly on the ramen. Serve immediately.


Be sure to serve this one quickly; the hot soup will continue to cook the noodles as soon as you put them in the bowl.

Serving Suggestions

  • Recommended Sides and Garnishes: A sprinkle of sesame seeds can add an earthy touch, while a dash of chili oil can elevate the heat for spice aficionados. Envision finely chopped green onions adding a vibrant burst of color and a refreshing contrast to the rich broth.
  • Beverage Pairings: A glass of white wine, particularly one with a slight acidity, like Sauvignon Blanc, can cut through the richness and enhance the underlying flavors. For a non-alcoholic alternative, a cold, crisp iced tea, infused with a touch of jasmine, can be an ethereal companion to your ramen.
  • Alternative Serving Styles: Consider presenting the Yakimiso Ramen in traditional Japanese ramen bowls to enhance the authentic dining experience. Or, for a contemporary twist, serve it deconstructed, allowing guests to merge ingredients to their liking, making each bite a personal masterpiece.

Cooking Tips

  • Tips for the Best Results: Always opt for fresh, quality ingredients. The miso paste, a cornerstone of this dish, should be fresh and aromatic. Remember, patience is a virtue; allow the pork belly to cook slowly, letting the flavors seep in and intensify.
  • Common Mistakes to Avoid: Overcooking the noodles is a sin in the holy book of ramen. They should be al dente, offering a slight resistance to the bite. Also, the balance of flavors is key. Too much soy sauce can overpower the delicate dance of tastes, turning the symphony into a cacophony.

  • How Can I Store Leftover Yakimiso Ramen?To store leftovers, separate the noodles from the broth to prevent them from turning soggy. Store them in airtight containers. The broth can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, while noodles should ideally be consumed within 2 days for optimal taste and texture.
