Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Homemade Ramen

Comfort food ala Japan

This version of ramen takes extra effort and patience.  Our recipe makes a big batch of broth for Pork Tonkatsu ramen, which is one of four main variants of Japanese ramen.  We think that’s enough to serve up to 8 people.  You can make the components of this dish a day ahead.  Homemade ramen can be a neat menu item for the next potluck or lunch party.  The warm stock with robust pork flavor is made hearty with the addition of noodles and a variety of toppings.  Remember that Japanese Ramen is an off-shoot of traditional Chinese noodle soup.  We will discuss saimen the Thursday.
