While the original Japanese ramen typically features a savory broth made from soy sauce or miso, Argentinian-Style Ramen incorporates elements of Argentinian cuisine by infusing the broth with rich and smoky flavors from ingredients like chimichurri sauce and grilled meats. The toppings are also adapted to include traditional Argentinian ingredients such as chimichurri-marinated steak, grilled vegetables, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs. We alse have the original recipe for Ramen, so you can check it out.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Ramen noodles — Cook the noodles according to the package instructions, but make sure to slightly undercook them as they will continue to cook in the hot broth.
  • Beef steak — Marinate the steak in chimichurri sauce for at least 30 minutes to infuse it with flavor before grilling.
  • Chimichurri sauce — If you prefer a spicier kick, add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the chimichurri sauce.
  • Green onions — Slice the green onions diagonally to add a visually appealing touch to the dish.
  • Fresh cilantro — If you're not a fan of cilantro, you can substitute it with fresh parsley for a milder herb flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra smoky flavor, you can grill the vegetables alongside the steak.
  • Customize your toppings by adding sliced avocado, a poached egg, or pickled onions.
  • If you prefer a spicier broth, add a few dashes of hot sauce or a sprinkle of chili flakes.
  • Make the dish more filling by adding a side of crusty bread or empanadas.
  • Leftover grilled meats and vegetables can be used as fillings for sandwiches or wraps the next day.

Serving advice

Serve the Argentinian-Style Ramen hot in individual bowls, allowing the vibrant colors of the toppings to shine through. Provide chopsticks and spoons for a traditional ramen experience, and encourage your guests to mix the ingredients together before enjoying each flavorful bite.

Presentation advice

To enhance the presentation, arrange the sliced steak, grilled vegetables, and green onions in an artful manner on top of the noodles. Sprinkle fresh cilantro over the dish for a pop of color. Serve the ramen in deep bowls to showcase the rich broth and generous toppings.
