Ramen Kind of Dish

Happy Chinese New Year! What a great occasion for an Asian cuisine inspired dish. Something like ramen, but not really ramen…cause I wasn’t following any recipe! 🙂  Do you stick to recipes when you’re cooking or are you more of a improvisation type of cook?

I buy loads of cooking magazines and collect cookbooks. Every time I travel abroad, to a place I haven’t been before, I try to find a cookbook with recipes traditional for the country or region. Although my collection is extensive and very often I browse through the recipes, I never follow the instructions exactly (baking is the only exception).

I have found some recipes online for ramen, but again, it’s Asian cuisine and I love to play with all the Asian flavours. So I got the ingredients I like and started cooking….

RECIPE: Ramen kind of dish

Ingredients:

  • 750g pork ribs
  • Onion (peeled)
  • Ramen noodles (I used vermicelli this time tho :))
