Photos, Recipes & CookTales For Those Who Enjoy Cooking


A CookTale

My first attempt at preparing and eating Ramen. I was motivated to order them from a Ramen supplier in San Francisco after reading about how wonderful they were in a new magazine, Lucky Peach, published by the popular Asian chef, David Chang. He devoted the inaugural issue to Ramen, and it sparked my interest. I must say for a four minute meal, not including the Pork, it was satisfactory. The next time I eat it, it will be at a noodle shop that specializes in Ramen.


1 package of Ramen (any flavor)
2-1/2 cups of Water
6 oz of ground Pork
1 small Onion (finely chopped)
1 TB of Peanut Oil

METHOD For the Ramen

1. Fill a saucepan with 2-1/2 cups of Water. Bring it to a boil. Add the Ramen noodles & simmer for four minutes. Turn off the burners & add the contents of the two flavor packages included. Mix with a chopstick until combined.

METHOD For the Pork

1. Add a TB of Peanut Oil to a saucepan. Saute the Onion until it’s translucent & opaque.

2. Add the ground Pork & saute until it’s cooked through & has lost it’s raw color. Mix it together with the Onion.

3. To serve, transfer the noodles to a deep bowl, & top with the Pork & Onion mixture.
