The holiday hoopla is over and I'm setting my sights on eating whole. Ramen has been all the rage and I've been dying to try this at home. I never skimp on flavor even when I'm eating light. This dish is a total flavor bomb, filled with a rich broth, tender meat, and noodles, topped with a 7-minute egg – my new favorite thing in the world. My family went nuts for this; it's complex, easy, and satisfying. You don't have to make the egg, but I think it's so worth it.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook about 30 seconds more. Add rice vinegar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, mirin, fish sauce, and sriracha sauce; stir to combine. Add chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes. Add chicken and bok choy; simmer gently until bok choy is just tender, about 2 minutes.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Add ramen noodles and return to a boil. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and drizzle with vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

  • While ramen is cooking, fill a pot with enough water to cover the eggs and bring to a boil. Gently lower eggs into the boiling water and cook until yolks are barely set, about 7 minutes.

  • Fill a large bowl with ice water. Transfer soft boiled eggs to the ice bath to stop the cooking process; let sit about 3 minutes. Drain eggs, carefully peel away shells, and slice in half.

  • Divide ramen between 4 bowls. Add broth. Top each with jalapeno, green onions, cilantro, and soft boiled egg. Serve immediately.

We really enjoyed this recipe. We had bok choy last night in a dish and since It's not my husband's favorite vegetable, I used fresh spinach and sliced celery instead. I like the combination of leafy and crunchy that using bok choy gives to a dish. I also cut a carrot into matchstick just to give it some color. I made the broth as written and it was amazing. I'm not a huge fan of soft boiled eggs so I decided to top mine off with a poached egg instead. AWESOME! I will definitely be making this one again. Read More

Yum!!!!! I did not have mirin or jalapeños so I skipped them. I did not have bok choy so I used a frozen mixture of kale spinach and swiss chard. And I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I only had ground ginger. Also I added sliced baby bella mushrooms and a diced yellow pepper. These minor changes and it was still great! I think I would prefer bok choy and chicken in the future but this seems to be a recipe that is adjustable based on your taste preference and whatever you have in your house. Read More

Made exactly as written and it was absolutely delicious. I agree with other reviewers that you could do with half the amount of soy, but would keep everything else the same. Mirin is a must! It really adds to the flavour. Read More
