From the Test Kitchen

Miso ramen, with its extra depth of umami flavor, is a much-loved variation on standard ramen. This recipe uses rich, fragrant barley miso (made from fermented soybeans and barley). To put a Korean twist on the Japanese dish, we’re making a quick kimchi with napa cabbage and crisp Asian pear. The sweetness of the pear perfectly balances the heat of the gochugaru (Korean chile flakes) in the kimchi’s marinade. We’re mixing some of the kimchi into the broth and serving the rest on top of each bowl, alongside silky soft-boiled eggs.

1 Cook & peel the eggs:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, carefully add the eggs and cook for exactly 7 minutes.
