Ingredients

  • 8 oz top sirloin - can use chicken breast as well
  • 4 cups low or no sodium chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs - you really want fresh eggs here
  • 2 cubes Japanese curry - Golden Curry seems to be a pretty popular brand
  • ramen noodles - or alkalinated spaghettini
  • a bit of oil
  • green onion to garnish

Instructions

  • Put a pot of water on to boil for the noodles

Cook the beef or chicken

  • Slice the beef into 1/4 inch slices or cut the chicken into 3/4 inch cubes.
  • Heat the oil in a pan large enough to hold the stock until it just shimmers.
  • Fry the beef or chicken until just done. Remove.

Medium boiled eggs

  • Gently lower the eggs into the boiling water (the water for the noodles) and cook for 6 1/2 minutes.
  • After 6 1/2 minutes place the eggs in a bowl of ice water to cool. You want them to cool quickly to stop the yolks from hardening.
  • Once they have cooled slice each egg in half lengthwise. Be careful. The yolks still have a bit of runny texture.

Make the broth

  • Chop the cubes into small pieces
  • Deglaze the pan with a bit of chicken stock then add about another cup of stock.
  • Add the chopped cubes into the stock and bring to a boil. These things don't dissolve very well so you will have to chase them with a spatula.
  • Once the cubes have dissolved add the remaining stock and simmer for about 4-5 minutes.
  • While the stock simmers cook the ramen noodles per the instructions on the package.
  • Drain the noodles.

To serve

  • Divide the noodles across two bowls. Arrange the beef or chicken overtop the noodles and pour half the broth into each bowl. Add the eggs, submerging slightly to warm them through.
  • Top with green onion and enjoy!

Notes

Alkalinated noodles come very close to authentic ramen noodles. Simply boil spaghettini or capellini in 8 cups of water to which 2 Tbsp of baking soda has been added. Hard to believe but it does really work...
