  • Summary

    Lush pork, toothsome noodles, and a heady broth you can't stop slurping—it's no wonder ramen joints are drawing droves of diners, off-duty chefs, and seemingly everyone on your Instagram feed. Bringing shoyu ramen home takes a trip to an Asian market, three days of work, and your largest pot, but this low-stress (really!) labor of love might be the best soup you'll ever make.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pieces dried kombu
    • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons dry sake
    • 1 tablespoon mirin
    • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder
    • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 2 pounds chicken necks, backs, and/or wings
    • 1 pound pork spareribs
    • 2 bunches scallions, chopped
    • 2 carrots, peeled, cut into pieces
    • 1 head of garlic, halved horizontally
    • 1 1" piece ginger, peeled, sliced
    • 1/4 cup bonito flakes
    • 3 large eggs
    • 6 5-ounce packages fresh thin and wavy ramen noodles (or six 3-ounce packages dried)
    • 1/2 cup menma (fermented bamboo shoots)
    • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
    • 3 toasted nori sheets, torn in half
    • Chili oil, toasted sesame oil, and shichimi togarashi (for serving)
