In this recipe, I will show you how to make Gyokai Tonkotsu Ramen 魚介豚骨ラーメン. Gyokai Tonkotsu Ramen is traditionally made of up fish and pork bones soup base.
For my recipe, I used pork bones and a mix of dried niboshi, sababushi to create a soup that is creamy, with fish-based umami. To complement this savoury recipe, I used low water content handmade noodles using different types of flour for a firm and springy texture. Chashu is made from pork arm / picnic which has less fat content for chewy texture, baked for sweet and smokey flavour.
As always, I did not use any MSG because I try to use various alternative ingredients to bring out the umami in my own recipes.
