Homemade Ramen Party

Filed under: — Andy @ 2:38 pm

Ramen is one of the most popular foods in Japan. Every shop has its own unique ’soup’ and preparation. After eating an atypical amount of Ramen one week and seeing a Ramen special on TV, I thought I would try my hand at making my own Ramen. It was a great excuse to have another house party.
For my ’soup’ base I used a chicken carcass, pig feet, pork skin, and pork meat, along with various vegetables and other ingredients. I also wanted to use pork bones, but it was harder to find than I thought. I made the soup and let it simmer a good 24 hours before our Ramen party. My Ramen was actually pretty good for a first try.
