Gather Ingredients

Divide ramen into soup bowls. Top with cooked pork and garnish with shiraga-negi and sprinkle shichimi pepper for extra heat. Enjoy!

Mix Sake and Miso

In a small bowl, mix sake and miso together thoroughly and set aside.

Prepare Shiraga-Negi

Remove the top leaves and the bottom root of the negi. To julienne, make an incision lengthwise, remove the core, flatten and stack the rectangular pieces and slice very thin. Cut into 3-inch pieces and leave them to soak in cold water.

Cook Pork

Heat wok on medium-high and add sesame oil. Add minced garlic and fry for 30 seconds. Add chopped shallots and ground pork and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add shiitake mushrooms and cook for 1 more minute. Stir in the sake and miso mixture and continue cooking until the liquid has nearly evaporated.

Prepare Noodles

Boil 4 cups of water in a medium pot and cook 2 packages of Maruchan GOLD Spicy Miso Flavor Ramen for 3 minutes. Allow noodles to soften slightly, and then gently spread them apart.

Prepare Soup Base

Place 1 teaspoon of tahini and the contents of the soup base in each serving bowl and mix together. Divide noodle broth and stir.
