The whole family is going to love this fresh ramen noodle bowl that’s sure to steam up the whole kitchen. Tonkotsu (“pork bone-broth” in Japanese) typically takes a full day to simmer, but we’ve sped things along thanks to a clever, quick-make broth that draws out all the deep umami flavour and salty goodness of red miso, dried shiitake mushrooms, garlic and ponzu sauce. Tender seared pork chop slices, hard-boiled egg halves and fresh noodles add to the bowl, making a deliciously slurpy feast for your gang—ready in just 30 minutes.

Mise en place
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Finely chop the mushrooms. Thinly slice the scallion crosswise, discarding the root end. Mince the garlic. Halve the hard boiled eggs.

Boil the noodles
Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water. Boil, 2 to 3 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the noodles; drizzle with oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pot.

Cook the pork
While the noodles boil, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Add the pork chops* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Once cool enough to handle, thinly slice the pork against the grain.

Simmer the broth
Heat the reserved pan of fond on medium-high. Add 1 cup water, scraping up any fond from the bottom of the pan, and cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until combined. Transfer the liquid to the reserved pot. Add the miso paste, mushrooms, garlic, ponzu and 5 cups water; generously season with S&P. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, until the mushrooms have rehydrated and the flavours have combined.

Assemble & serve
Divide the cooked noodles, baby spinach, sliced pork and egg halves between your bowls. To the pot of broth, add the almond milk; stir to combine. Add the finished broth to the bowls. Top with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil. Garnish with the scallions. Bon appétit!

*Health Canada recommends cooking pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
