Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Black beans — If using canned black beans, rinse them thoroughly before adding to the recipe to reduce sodium content.
  • Pork shoulder — Slow-cooking the pork shoulder until tender and easily shredded will enhance the flavor and texture of the dish.
  • Soft-boiled eggs — Cook the eggs for 6-7 minutes for a slightly runny yolk, or adjust the cooking time to your preference.
  • Ramen noodles — Follow the package instructions for cooking time, but be careful not to overcook them to maintain a satisfying texture.
  • Lime wedges — Squeezing fresh lime juice over the ramen just before eating adds a refreshing citrusy kick.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra layer of flavor, garnish the ramen with crispy bacon or fried plantains.
  • Adjust the spiciness by adding a few drops of hot sauce or sliced chili peppers to the broth.
  • If you prefer a thicker broth, mash some of the cooked black beans before adding them to the pot.
  • Experiment with different toppings such as sautéed mushrooms, sliced avocado, or pickled vegetables to personalize your Brazilian-style Ramen.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat gently on the stovetop, adding a splash of water or broth to maintain the desired consistency.

Serving advice

Serve the Brazilian-style Ramen hot, allowing the flavors to meld together. Encourage your guests to squeeze fresh lime juice over their bowls for a burst of acidity. Provide chopsticks and spoons for a traditional Ramen experience.

Presentation advice

Present the Brazilian-style Ramen in deep bowls, showcasing the vibrant colors of the black beans, pork, and green onions. Garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh cilantro for a pop of green. Serve with lime wedges on the side for an inviting touch.
