Tsukemen - Japanese Dipping Noodles



I made Tsukemen today. I knew I had to make Tsukemen after I saw this video below from Cooking with Dog :).



It's really delicious! The portion looks huge in the picture, but it's actually not as much as it seems. These little bowls are in reality quite tiny - I bought these beauties in Daiso Singapore. I really shopped till I dropped there, such a pity that I couldn't buy as much as I wanted, as I would have to carry all those back to Germany and would in the end have difficulty with the luggage.

Ingredients - serves 2
Source: Cooking with Dog

2 bags of fresh ramen
100g pork belly slices
400ml chicken Stock
2 tbsp sake
1 clove garlic
1 piece ginger root

1 tsp dried red chili pepper, sliced into rings
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 long green onion
40g Shiitake Mushrooms
40g Shimeji Mushrooms
½ tsp sesame oil
1 tsp vinegar

Toppings
1 soft boiled egg
Chopped Spring onion leaves
Katsuobushi shavings (Bonito flakes)
Grated garlic

  3. Oh, the tsukemen noodle is lovely, just lovely. You should move to Japan, because that way you can have many Daiso all around you :DD

  7. I have never heard of Tsukemen. Judging from your photo this is something I definitely must make one day. I know the Cooking with Dog videos! I find it very funny (although the dog is not my favourite breed...).
    Beautiful bowls, indeed. I can imagine your dilemma...

  10. Delicious! I think Cooking with Dog is not popular in Japan (my friends never heard of it - maybe because of English) but it's a great video clips of Japanese food! I don't have patience to watch clips but for people who have no idea how to cook, it's such an excellent source! I'll just follow your written recipe. Thanks for writing it up! ;-)
