Chu Lo ramen recipe with ingredients

Sometimes plain ramen just doesn’t cut it. You need more than the sauce in the packet, but also don’t want to spent ages in the kitchen. That’s where our ramen recipes help level up your ramen!

Add some pizzazz and fresh veggies to transform comfort food into feel good food. These ramen recipes are inspired by Chu Lo’s founder’s travels in Japan. 

1. Tonkotsu RaMEN

Tonkotsu ramen with Chu Lo and ingredients

Tonkotsu translates to “pig bones” in English (we know, it doesn’t sound too appetitsing but trust us on this one!) meaning this ramen is meaty and pork-flavoured. We’ve balanced this heavy flavour with veggies and an egg to create a rich, colourful, and delicious dish. 

Ingredients

  • Chicken gyozas 
  • 1 egg
  • Tonkotsu flavour packet noodles
  • Soy sauce
  • Pak choi
  • Diced spring onion

Instructions

  1. Fill up a saucepan with water and start boiling it, ready for your egg or eggs if you prefer a few.
  2. In a separate pan, pour in a splash of soy sauce, and then put your chicken gyozas on top (as many as you would like!).
  3. Cover the pan with another pan and steam it for as long as it recommends on the packet.
  4. Now the water in your saucepan has boiled, put your egg(s) in for as long as you like, depending on you like your eggs runny or hard in the centre. 
  5. Next, get another sauce pan, fill it with water and boil it again (luckily, we have a boiling water tap in the office).
  6. Then, put in your tonkotsu noodles and pour in the contents of its flavour sachets.
  7. Boil the noodles for it for as long as the packet instructs.
  8. When your egg is done to your liking, take it out and empty the water. Once it’s cool enough to handle, peel off the egg shell!
  9.  By now, your noodles should be done! Pour the saucepan with the noodles in into your favourite large bowl and add a splash of soy sauce.
  10. Next, cut your pak choi in half and steam it for about 3 minutes in the same way you did with the chicken gyozas (in a pan with a pan on top), but this time without the soy sauce.
  11. When it’s done, place half of your pak choi on top of your bowl along with as many chicken gyozas as you would like. The more the merrier!
  12. Then, cut your boiled egg in half and place it on top. 
  13. Lastly, sprinkle on your diced spring onion and you’re done!
Thirsty? We think this recipe pairs best with Chu Lo Peach Sour! Because a savoury dish requires a sweet drink, and this one sure is peachy!
