Last Thanksgiving, I made a Salt Rub and Butter Turkey. If you're searching for a simple recipe that yields the most flavorful results, I highly recommend it. Actually, I don't know if using any old turkey recipe will give you the same result. So make my turkey recipe and then make this! :)
Notice how the pork looks fall-apart tender? I finally tried my hand at making Buta No Kakuni (Japanese braised pork) and it was marvelous with the ramen.
Much thanks to Ila of I Nom Things for answering my question of whether I can call this shichimenchou ramen. Yay!
Shichimenchou (Japanese Turkey Bone) Ramen
Carcass of salt rub and butter turkey
For serving, you'll need:
Buta no kakuni (Japanese braised pork) or Char Siu (Chinese Barbecued Pork)
Fresh ramen noodles, boiled and drained
Scallions, for garnish
Nori seaweed, for garnish
Omelet, for garnish
Since the salt rub and butter turkey had so much flavor, there's no need to add any additional salt. Fill a large stock pot with water and add the turkey bones when it boils. Keep the heat at medium-high and boil the bones for at least 2 hours. If the broth is too salty, add more water to dilute.
This time I found fresh ramen noodles that were yellow.
Looks more like real ramen huh?
When the turkey ramen broth is ready, serve with fresh noodles, sliced pork, sliced omelet, and garnish with scallions and nori seaweed.
