[Leftover] Char Sui Pork Ramen
with cabbage / edamame

Active: 40 Total: 40

With leftover Char Sui pork from earlier in the week, this is one of the quickest and most flavorful ramen recipes that we've featured in a meal plan.
Smarts: Be sure to taste and adjust the flavors of the ramen, either by adding seasoning to the entire pot at the end of cooking or by setting out extra sauces at the table so everyone can add them to their own bowls.

Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven or large saucepan with cooking oil over medium heat. Add ginger, garlic, and white parts of green onions with some salt. Saute until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Pour stock over aromatics and bring to a simmer.

  3. When stock is simmering, stir in soy sauce, coleslaw mix, and pork. Simmer until coleslaw is nearly tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Add ramen noodles and cook until tender (check the package directions for recommended cook time).

  5. When ramen noodles are tender, remove the pan from heat and stir in edamame, Hoisin sauce, toasted sesame oil, and green parts of green onions. Squeeze half the lime wedges over top.

  6. Taste ramen and season with some more soy sauce if you’d like it saltier, some additional Hoisin sauce for more sweet and aromatic flavor, or with some hot sauce (not on ingredients list) if you’d like it spicy.

  7. Divide ramen between bowls and serve with extra lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!

I added hot sauce, hubby added more hoisin. Could’ve used a little more spices but was a quick put together and will definitely do this again if I have leftover pork.

This was amazing. I’ve never made my own ramen soup and I couldn’t believe how simple and flavorful it was. Even my four year ate it. Will be making this again for sure.

Loved how simple it was to make! We used weird noodles so I’m looking forward to trying it again with actual ramen :)

Subbed red for green cabbage as it was a much more reasonable size. Subbed shiitakes for fake sausage. Had some unused green bell peppers we threw in there too with some extra ramen noodles. I liked how obviously customizable this one was.
