Introducing September 2022 JOC Cooking Challenge!
Welcome back to JOC Cooking Challenge! This is our third challenge since we launched the event back early this year. I hope you had fun making Mosaic Sushi in March and Japanese Milk Bread (Shokupan) in June/July.
What is JOC Cooking Challenge
It’s a quarterly online event on Just One Cookbook where I share a new recipe for you to make at home, and in return, you just need to snap a picture of the final dish and share it with us!
The JOC Cooking Challenge months are March, June, September, and December.
This Month’s Recipe Challenge
The recipe for this month’s challenge is Shio Ramen!
We’re gearing up to prepare more comfort food in anticipation of the cooler temperatures, so I thought a bowl of soothing ramen would be fitting. Don’t worry, this ramen recipe is not going to take up your entire day. There’s some simmering involved but totally doable! Anyone who loves a good noodle soup will enjoy making shio ramen.
Please take time to read the entire post and recipe first, before you head to the kitchen! It’s very important to be well prepared before you start cooking. And if you have any questions about this recipe, please leave them in the comment section of the recipe post. If it’s related to the cooking challenge rules, please leave your comment below. We’re ready to help!
Remember this is a challenging recipe; therefore, we would like you to follow the recipe as closely as possible so that your end product will look similar to mine.
If you are vegetarian/vegan, please see the recipe post and recipe card carefully for substitutions.
This contest is open to everyone worldwide. We will randomly select 3 winners at the end of the challenge using random.org. Each winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
Everyone who participates in the JOC Cooking Challenge and sends us pictures of your final dish via email is automatically entered into the prize draw.
Please note that we will NOT select winners based on the creations, but you need to make sure your submission meets the scope of the recipe.
