Sesame & pork belly ramen-style noodle soup

Sesame & pork belly ramen-style noodle soup

Hearty, spicy and quick to make. Try using 1 litre of dashi instead of the chicken stock - it’s made with kombu kelp and bonito flakes, resulting in a deeply savoury, umami flavour.

  • 380g pack Japan Menyū 6 Teriyaki Pork Belly Slices
  • 4 Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Medium Eggs
  • 200g pack Tenderstem broccoli spears, cut into thirds
  • 250g wholewheat noodles
  • 2 x 28g Knorr Chicken Stock Pots
  • 2 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Tahini
  • ½ tbsp Lee Kum Kee Chiu Chow Chilli Oil, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tbsp white miso paste


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Cook, then glaze the pork slices on a foil-lined baking tray according to pack instructions, ensuring there is no pink meat and the juices run clear. Meanwhile, lower the eggs into a large pan of boiling water and cook for 7 minutes. Transfer to cold water, then peel and halve when cool enough to handle.

  2. Add the broccoli to a pan of boiling water then simmer for 3-4 minutes until tender. Transfer the broccoli to a plate with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the noodles to the water, turn off the heat and leave to soak for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. In a separate pan, boil 1L water, add the stock pots and bring to a simmer. Mix the tahini, chilli oil and miso in a small bowl with 1 tbsp cold water until smooth. Whisk into the hot stock.

  4. To serve, divide the noodles between 4 warm bowls and top with 1½ slices of the pork belly, the broccoli and the halved eggs. Pour in the hot broth and drizzle the bowls with extra chilli oil, if liked.

Cook’s tip

If you have a pot of Cooks’ Ingredients Ramen Paste in the cupboard, you can use that instead of the tahini, chilli oil and miso mix. Use the whole 190g jar in 1L water.
