Even though I love pork belly ramen, I'm not crazy about soggy pork belly. I want it to be crispy on the edges! In this pork belly ramen recipe, I use homemade ramen noodles (optional), and my super simple Oven Roasted Crispy Pork Belly that's crisped up just before adding to the soup. The broth is delicate with hints of ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil and soft cooked eggs. For flavor, texture, and to make the soup more nutritious, I add some baby bok choy and garnish with fresh cilantro, green onions and Thai basil. Then a bit of sriracha for kick! It's the perfect bowl of ramen!
Meanwhile, slice Oven Roasted Crispy Pork Belly (or other cooked pork belly) into ⅛-inch lengthwise slices. Place in a skillet over medium heat and fry until edges are crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet to a paper towel to drain.
Add ramen noodles to boiling broth and cook one minute (longer if you're using dried ramen noodles). After one minute add bok choy and ginger; bring to boil and cook one minute more. Remove from heat and stir in soy sauce and sesame oil.
Divide ramen between 4 bowls. Top each with two egg halves, ¼ of pork belly and desired amounts of sriracha, green onions, cilantro and basil. Serve.
