Mustard Pork Ramen

This one sounds interesting, and even more interesting is that it’s from Finland. I think that’s a first for the site. The recipe calls for Colman’s mustard, which is the one my father-in-law recommends for his baked bean recipes (and was amazed to find out that I can’t find it in Colorado).

    Ingredients

  • 1 pack of plain ramen
  • 1-2 slices of bacon or fatty pork
  • 1/2 red onion
  • chopped garlic to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sambal oelek or other chili
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1+ teaspoon mustard powder (I use Colman\’s)
  • ketjap manis soy sauce
  • egg yolk

This one is easy to make and very very tasty indeed. Measurements are highly approximate, so try it once and suit to taste. Mustard powder is the secret ingredient here: gives the dish a wonderful tangy flavour.

  1. Fry bacon until semi-crispy, turn heat down
  2. Add onion, garlic & sambal and fry for a minute
  3. Add turmeric, curry & mustard powder and fry another minute (heat was down, yes? don’t let the base dry on you)
  4. Add ramen(s), enough water to drown most of ramen, cover and simmer low for 5 mins or so
  5. Drain, leave just a dash of water in the pan
  6. Add egg yolk, stir & add a few good gulps of ketjap manis depending how salty you fancy
  7. Enjoy!
