Mmm, noodles

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.

Adapted from here.

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