もやしラーメン Ramen Noodles and Soup with Stir Fried Pork and BeanSprouts

もやしラーメン Ramen Noodles and Soup with Stir Fried Pork and Bean Sprouts by naotakem

Wasn't sure if I should include this here as it doesn't require a lot of cooking and relies on store-bought ramen noodles and soy sauce flavored soup (the refrigerated uncooked kind, not the fried and dry variety) to a great extent, but this photo on Flickr was getting a lot of views so I figured it merited a writeup.


Cut pork slices (doesn't have to be any premium meat as long as it's thin and has some fat - I used the 'economy' cut from a Japanese supermarket) into narrow strips, place in a bowl, season and marinate with small amounts of soy sauce, sake, salt and pepper, set aside. In a pan, sauté some chopped garlic in vegetable oil and when it becomes aromatic, add the pork and cook through. Add some chopped green onions, a teaspoon or so of Chinese hot bean paste, mix some, then add washed and well-drained bean sprouts, and continue to stir fry. When the sprouts are crisp-tender, add a small amount of potato starch dissolved in water to the pan and toss well until there is some thickness to the pork-vegetable mix. Simultaneously, prepare the ramen noodles and soup following its instructions and place in a bowl. Serve the pork-sprout mix over the noodles and eat quickly.
