We regularly have pulled pork for dinner on a weekend, I really love this recipe by Simon Rimmer, it’s easy to make and practically cooks itself. There is always loads leftover and my favourite leftovers recipe is this delicious pulled pork ramen.
The duck ramen from wagamama’s is probably my favourite ramen of all time and I order it every time I go. I have made a few ramens before, and you can easily spend a few hours making the stock. While that is nice, no one really has time for that, so here is my super easy recipe that can be made in around 30 minutes.
What you will need
For the Stock
2 organic chicken stock pots
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
3 spring onions, roughly chopped
Ginger 3cm cube peeled and bashed
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 cloves of bashed garlic
2 pints of boiled water
For the Garnish
Leftover pulled pork
Two nests of wholemeal egg noodles
2 boiled eggs
Tin of bamboo shoots
Two large handfuls of spinach
3 spring onions, chopped
How to Make
Firstly boil your eggs for roughly 7 mins, so still slightly soft, once ready cool in cold water then de-shell and leave aside.
In another pan, add the noodles and pour over boiling water until just covered. Add the pan lid and leave to stand for 15 minutes to soften.
For the stock take 2 pints of boiling water, add the spring onion, ginger, garlic, chilli and soy sauce. Leave to boil on a low heat for 15 minutes to let the favours infuse. With a jug under a sieve, pour the content of the stock into the jug to remove the bits, these can be discarded.
Add the stock back into the pan, still on the heat, then add the pulled pork, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots to warm through.
Drain the noodles and place in your bowl with the raw spinach. Sieve out the pork and veg from the stock and place in the bowl. Pour over the stock and add some chopped raw spring onion and some extra beansprouts.
Finish with the boiled egg, cut in half and a light sprinkle of chilli flakes. Enjoy!
This ramen has so much flavour and is real comfort food, like a hug in a bowl. It’s a great way to add some excitement to your leftover pulled pork. If you make it, let me know, I would love to see any tweaks you make to it, tag me on @i_heart_maggie for Instagram or @IHeart_Maggie on twitter.
