Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Pork belly — For extra flavor, marinate the pork belly in a mixture of soy sauce, ginger, and garlic for 1-2 hours before cooking.
  • Sichuan peppercorns — Toast the peppercorns in a dry pan over medium heat for a few minutes to enhance their aroma before crushing them.
  • Soft-boiled eggs — To achieve the perfect soft-boiled eggs, bring the water to a gentle boil before adding the eggs. Cook for 6-7 minutes for a slightly runny yolk.

Tips & Tricks

  • Adjust the amount of Sichuan chili oil according to your spice tolerance. Start with a smaller amount and add more gradually if desired.
  • For an extra kick, garnish the ramen with additional crushed Sichuan peppercorns.
  • Customize your toppings by adding sliced mushrooms, bamboo shoots, or bok choy to the ramen.
  • If you prefer a thicker broth, simmer the chicken broth for a longer period to reduce and concentrate the flavors.
  • Leftover broth can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat before serving.

Serving advice

Serve the Sichuan-style Spicy Ramen piping hot to fully experience the flavors and warmth. Provide chopsticks and spoons for easy enjoyment. Encourage your guests to mix the toppings into the noodles and broth for a harmonious blend of textures and tastes.
