A tasty homemade tonkatsu (pork) ramen with homemade ramen broth, Chashu (pork belly), and Ajitsuke Tamago (ramen eggs) that’s stuffed with flavor!
Windows seems to be extremely popular in restaurants today, which is sweet because I always enjoy a decent bowl of ramen. the opposite day, while enjoying a bowl of pork ramen, I noticed it had been time to share my favorite ramen recipe. Tonkotsu windows require a bit of work, but it’s worthwhile. It all starts with tonkatsu ramen broth, Chashu side of pork, and Ajitsuke Tamago (ramen eggs), which may be made earlier so the finished ramen bowl is discarded in no time. Just heat the stock, cook the noodles, and add your favorite ingredients and you may be within the ramen sky in but 20 minutes. I really like simple toppings for my windows, adding mushrooms and green onions to the stock, noodles, sliced pork, and egg, and after all a bit of shichimi spicy tōgarashi (hot pepper spice mix) top it off perfectly! Next time you’re hungry for windows, remember to form your own!
