Spicy Shoyu Ramen 醤油ラメーン

Spicy Shoyu Ramen Recipe | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com For the US readers, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  We spent quite a bit of time cooking (& photo shooting) over the long break and our family enjoyed the slow days staying up late watching children’s movies.  I just got back to blogging today so I’ll respond to your questions and comments as soon as I can.  Don’t forget to check the giveaway winners – they are listed at the end of today’s recipe!

My friend Cindy (aka Jeno) from Weeknite Meals had asked me for Shoyu Ramen (“shoyu” means soy sauce in Japanese) before the summer and I finally finished my recipe after testing several times.  If you don’t (or can’t) eat spicy food like myself, don’t panic yet.  This amount of spicy level is “endurable” for people who cannot tolerable spicy food, even me.  If you prefer no spicy taste at all for yourself or young children, you can use regular chili bean paste (doubanjiang) and not spicy chili bean paste (la doubanjiang).  Of course, if you like it more spicy, please increase the amount based on your personal preference.  I hope you enjoy this Shoyu Ramen!

Spicy Shoyu Ramen
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: Serves 2
Ingredients
  • 2 packages ramen noodles
Soup
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ inch ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp. spicy chili bean paste with chili (la doubanjiang)
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups dashi stock
  • 2 ½ Tbsp. soy sauce
  • ½ Tbsp. sake
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
Toppings (optional)
Instructions
  1. Prepare toppings. Fresh ramen noodle will be done cooking in less than 2-3 minutes therefore you should prepare all of your toppings before you start cooking the ramen noodle.
  2. Prepare noodles. In a large pot, fill ⅔ of the pot with water and bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat and set aside until you are ready to cook ramen noodle.
  3. Meanwhile, mince garlic and ginger.
  4. Heat sesame oil in a pot that fits 4 cups of water. Add garlic and ginger and sauté until fragrant.
  5. Add spicy chili bean paste and stir.
  6. Add the rest of Soup ingredients and simmer for a few minutes.
  7. Check the flavor. It should be a little salty. Strain the soup through cheese cloth and put the soup back into the pot.
  8. Keep the soup simmering (not boiling) until you are ready to serve.
  9. Now ready to cook noodles. Loosen up the noodles before putting them into the boiling water. Cook noodles according to the package instructions. My personal recommendation is to reduced the noodle cooking time than what is on the package label. The reason for this is because once you pour the soup over the noodle, it continues to "cook" it.
  10. Drain the noodles completely and put it in a serving bowl.
  11. Pour the soup in the bowl and decorate with your toppings. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!

    Wow, this looks so wonderful! I saw you mentioned fresh ramen noodles, but do the dried ones (you know, the cheap ones most used by poor college students) work the same way? I drove by a large Asian market the other day but it was closed, but I’m planning a trip again this week to see what they have. Maybe they will have the fresh noodles. Anyway, this soup looks so good! I would make it extra spicy, we like it hot!

      Yes, the dried one works the same way. But fresh noodles are much tastier~~! ;-)

    Lovely photos! The red pepper threads are pretty…I’ve never really seen them before. Is it really menma that they usually use in ramen soups? I guess I can just use regular bamboo shoot? I love the look of your chashu too…nice and fatty :p

    Reply
    • Nami November 30, 2011, 12:41 am

      Menma has certain flavor, so it’s not just bamboo shoot. It’s very common topping for ramen. :-)

Ramen is definitely going to be one of the things I’m trying soon, since I’ve been working through soba and udon now! Can’t wait to try it!

    Nami-san, When I lived in Japan, many times they served ‘seasoned egg’ with the ramen. It was soft boiled, but it had been marinated or soaked in a dark liquid. It gives the egg a smoky flavor, not sweet like teriyaki sauce. Do you think it’s straight shoyu or a mix of something? Maybe some hoisin and shoyo? I used to get one egg, then break it open so that the yolk became part of the broth.
    BTW, the eggs in Japan are AMAZING!! They have a bright orange yolk and a wonderful richness that’s not found in farmed American eggs. The closest I’ve found to match them are organic, omega-rich eggs.

    Reply
    • Nami November 30, 2011, 1:35 am

      We call the seasoned egg “ni tamago” or “ajitsuke tamago”. My husband and I were just talking that I should have made them for ramen, to be more authentic. I wasn’t planning to make the ramen (& photo shoot) that day, so I didn’t prepare the egg previous day. :-(

      I’ll probably make the How To page just for ni tamago/ajitsuke tamago. But meanwhile here’s my recipe.

      Ingredients:
      Soft boiled egg (see my How To page), peeled
      200ml dashi stock
      100ml soy sauce
      100ml mirin
      1 tsp. rice vinegar

      Directions:
      1) In a saucepan, bring dashi, soy sauce, and mirin to a boil and turn off.
      2) After cool down, put the sauce in a container and put the egg in it.
      3) Marinate the egg over night.

    It sounds fantastic and looks much more complex than I thought. I have always thought shoyu ramen is what I made with udon once (only soy sauce, mirin and dashi mixture). I see this has richer flavours. I love it!
    Otherwise I have fallen in love with your bowl. This is this type of Japanese design I am crazy for.

    Hi Nami:
    I luv, luv ramen. The best shops are in the South Bay which I’ve not tried yet. Can you let me know what type (brand name) of fresh ramen noodles you use and where you can purchase them. For me, the texture of the noodles is the utmost importance followed by the broth. I have access to Maruwa, Niji-ya and Ranch 99. Thus far I’ve been buying Sun Noodles, but it comes with a packet of assari shoyu ramen soup.
    Domo arigato.

      Hi Mae! I like to buy and check different brands of noodles, but lately I haven’t had ramen at home so I can’t quite remember. Njiya brand’s fresh ramen noodles (they pack noodles in clear plastic container) were pretty good (it’s been a while though). This package comes with soup but I’ve never tried the soup before and I just used noodles. Hope this helps. :)

    Can I use kombu dashi or would that affect the flavor too much? I’m a vegetarian, so I’m planning on using a chicken-broth substitute as well. Your help is appreciated! ^_^
