Pork Belly Miso Ramen

Nothing like a Ramen to warm your soul on these cold nights. Below is a recipe that my wonderful BF made the other  night. Yep he literally whipped up it is so easy, so  i got him to send me the recipe below... Enjoy!! 


400gm of pork belly

cider vinegar

dark soy sauce

chilli flakes

Chinese 5 spice or your favourite BBQ rub

4-6 Shrimps

two eggs

konjac noodles

3 cups chicken broth (homemade if possible)

miso paste


bok choi

nice little mixed mushroom pack


Take 400gm of pork belly, score skin side and add to a pot with 2 cups of water, a tablespoon of cider vinegar and a tablespoon of dark soy sauce. Add a teaspoon of salt, a pinch of chilli flakes. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes, once skin has turned translucent remove from water and set aside to rest for 5 minutes, then gather spices, I usually use whatever meat spice I have lying around, something like Chinese 5 spice or your favourite bbq rub, season generously on all sides with rub and a light sprinkling of salt, this will help render the fat and create a nice crackling skin. Now add to air fryer at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure the skin doesn't get too dark. Remove and let rest once done. Now fry up a few shrimps in butter and season with a bit of salt and pepper.

 Add two eggs to a pot of cold water, boil for 6 minutes then remove from heat and rinse under cold water and add a handful of ice cubes to stop them from cooking any further.

 Strain one pack of konjac noodles in strainer, add a teaspoon of coconut oil to a small frying pan add noodles and fry until they stop steaming.

 Start with an amazing chicken broth that your girlfriend has made, add about 3 cups to a medium pot, add 2 teaspoons of miso paste and bring to a lite simmer, now start with prepping fresh ingredients, chop broccoli into bite size pieces add these two the broth, let boil for 2-3 minutes then remove and set aside. Wash bok choi and add to broth for a minute, then remove and set aside. Add mushrooms to broth, you can get nice little mixed mushroom pack from your local veggie shop.

Now add broth to 2 bowls, decode noodles in two and add to bowl, peel and cut boiled eggs in half place in bowls, cut pork belly into bite size pieces and place in bowl along with fried shrimp, add bok choi along with broccoli.

 Last but not least, stare in amazement and the meal you have just created and enjoy.
