I prepare some items for the ramen the day before. Braised pork is one of them. I tried to complete cooking ramen in 2 hours cooking time in the class, and I’ve tried to cook braised pork in an hour. However, the result is not good enough for me. May be I need more practice, but I couldn’t satisfied the taste and texture of the pork. So I decided to cook in advance, the night before.
I like to use pork shoulder for braised pork, but can be substitute to other part of pork.
Adding hot water to cooked pork seasonings becomes nice ramen noodle soup. My ramen cooking containing more umami into a bowl though. How profound to know umami and ramen!
