Last night a bunch of people came over to watch Tampopo and eat homemade ramen. Here's the recipe from the second batch (the first was too salty):
- 1 lb Chukamen (raw Chinese noodles)
- 1 clove finely chopped garlic
- 1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 cup vegetable stock
- 2 tbsp sake
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- Chopped negi (looks like a large green onion, about 2 feet long)
- Nori (dried seaweed)
Heat sesame oil in a deep pan. Saute chopped ginger and garlic in the pan. Lower the heat. Add stock and bring to a boil. Add sugar, salt, sake, and soy sauce. In the meantime, boil water in a large pan. Add chukamen noodles in the boiling water and cook for a few minutes. Drain the noodles. Serve the noodles in individual bowls and ladle soup over them. Garnish with negi and nori.
Makes about 2 servings. We quadrupled it. Twice.

The party was lots of fun. I took a few pictures.
