Japenese Beef Ramen


Makes six servings

  • 2 quarts beef broth
  • 3 ounces beef, trimmed of fat and sliced or cubed
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 daikon (Japanese radish)
  • 4 pieces of kombu, cut into small pieces
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced into thin pieces
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 green onions, sliced into rounds
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodum soy sauce
  • Ginger, garlic, salt, cayenne, smoked paprika, chili powder
  • 2 packages Udon or Soba noodles, boiled and drained

Start your beef broth in a large stock pot. Add a soup bone if you have one. You can make your own broth or use a low-sodium store-bought variety. I used a soup bone with some meat on it and prepared beef broth for this soup. I had enough left in the bone and the broth to make another gallon of broth for a separate soup. However you’re doing the broth, have it all in one big pot and turn it onto high heat.

  1. Chop up and add the kombu and daikon. The kombu will expand greatly so cut into small pieces. Add any other vegetable you want.
  2. Add generous amounts of ginger and garlic. Add the soy sauce and vinegar. Add salt, chili powder and cayenne to taste. And just a small dash of smoked paprika. Let the flavors simmer before testing as the heat enhances their flavor.
  3. In a separate pot, bring water to a boil for the noodles. Cook according to package directions, leaving just slightly al dente. They will finish cooking in the soup itself.
  4. If you haven’t already, add sliced or cubed meat to the beef broth. If you were making the broth with a soup bone, take it out and trim any meat off. Add it back to the pot.
  5. When the vegetables are soft and the broth is flavored to your liking, move it to a back burner and turn it off.
  6. Place a serving of noodles into each bowl. Ladle the hot soup over the noodles.
  7. Quickly prepare eggs over easy. Add them to the soup. Garnish with sliced green onions.
  8. Enjoy with chopsticks, and if you feel like culture smashing, a grilled cheese sandwich. Or not.
