My husband absolutely loves ramen. I love ramen. When we went to Japan back in November 2015, we indulged in all different types of ramen. The variety, purity, and umami flavor of the ramen was incredible. I wanted to try and make it at home…. why? Sure it may take me hours, but there’s a gratification and “get it anytime I want” mentality when I am either too lazy or too busy to leave the house.
After an appropriate internet search on a legit ramen recipe, I stumbled across the website IceOrRice and was blown away by their love for cultural food and flavors and their willingness to share it with people.
So… see below for their fabulous recipe to make instant pot miso ramen!
Keep in mind…. I am not a chef. I’ve used my instant pot maybe 3 times in my life. But this recipe delivers without fail!! Give it a try, you’ll be so glad you did!
Side note: I didn’t have a whole chicken on hand, so I used 64 oz organic chicken stock and 32 oz water for my broth/liquid.
I also didn’t have red miso on hand… note to self: get it from the Asian market as it does matter for the umami flavor!
I used these gluten-free and organic millet and brown rice ramen noodles that I got at Costco and they were a nice consistency and were a great and almost unnoticeable gluten-free replacement.
I didn’t plan ahead so I wasn’t able to do the IceOrRice Shoyu Ramen Egg, but I did follow the directions for cooking time of the egg. I used the shiitake mushrooms from the broth in the dish itself. And I love kimchi — that’s a staple for me in almost any asian side dish. Scallions sprinkled on top are always lovely! We had some left over mirin-marinated ground beef, so we threw that on top for a little texture.
I also had some leftover tofu that we threw in our ramen.
My husband took this photo prior to devouring the ramen. He was sooooo stoked! Looks like this recipe is a keeper — it makes enough to use throughout the week (4-6 adult servings). Perfect comfort food for cold nights!
Yeah, we really enjoyed this ramen recipe!!! Terrific job iceorrice!!
