In this seasonal take on a Japanese standard, we’re serving up a delicious version of yakibuta ramen. Yakibuta (Japanese for “roast pork”) is a classic preparation similar to char siu, a Cantonese-style Chinese dish. The pork is seared and roasted, then sliced thinly and used in all kinds of dishes—accenting the ingredients around it with its signature richness. Here, we’re serving it with tender ramen noodles, a flavorful broth and seasonal produce, including eggplant and delicate microgreens (the nutritious early sprouts of leafy vegetables).

Pork Ramen with Fresh Ramen Noodles & Summer Vegetables ingredients
  • 1 Pork Roast
  • ¾ Pound Fresh Ramen Noodles
  • 2 Scallions
  • 1 Ear Of Corn

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Trim off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Remove and discard the husks and silks of the corn. Cut the corn kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Cut off and discard the stem end of the eggplant; cut the eggplant into ½-inch-thick rounds. Peel and mince the ginger.

Add the seasoned pork. Cook, turning occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until evenly browned. Transfer to a foil-lined sheet pan. Roast the seared pork 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.) Remove from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Let rest for at least 5 minutes.

Add the corn, soy glaze, vinegar, demi-glace and 2 cups of water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until thoroughly combined.
