Spicy Miso Ramen (辛味噌ラーメン)

In this recipe, I will show you a recipe for Spicy Miso Ramen (also known as Kara Miso Ramen 辛味噌ラーメン). This is a spicy version of the popular Miso Ramen and is a really enjoyable dish especially in cold weather!

For my recipe, I used a mix of pork and niboshi (fish) as the ramen soup-base. The miso paste is made with a blend of Japanese and Korean spices to give a nice kick with more dimensions without being too overpowering. This savoury ramen is complemented by springy firm noodles as well as Iberico pork belly slices so you can fully enjoy the flavours.

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.

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!
