Japanese Shio Ramen (塩ラーメンの作り方)

Hello, in this recipe I will show you how to make my own original recipe of Japanese Shio Ramen from scratch, using all-natural ingredients, with no MSG added.

Shio Ramen is usually light, with a clear broth seasoned with salt so that the taste focuses on the soup. My soup is made with pork-bones slowly boiled over long hours.

The total preparation time is about 2 days as you will need some time for dashi, boil pork soup, noodle, and for making ajitama. If you wish to learn how to make ajitama (flavoured egg) please refer to my first recipe where I made Japanese Shoyu Ramen.

Hope you enjoy the recipe, visit my youtube channel if you do! Please also subscribe if you wish to watch more ramen recipe videos and feel free to leave a comment for request of any ramen recipes. Thank you!
