Instant Pot Pork Miso Ramen

 

Recipe

Ingredients

2-6 large eggs (however many you like!)
2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 oz. dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked for 5 min in 1 C warm water and drained
1 Tbls. grated fresh ginger
3 garlic gloves, grated
3 Tbls. white miso paste
2 Tbls. low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 lb pork loin, whole
5 leaves napa cabbage, sliced thin
1/2 C shredded carrots
6 oz plain ramen noodles (may be labeled "chaku soba", or udon noodles if you prefer)

Garnishes - optional and can be prepped while broth is cooking
3 green onions, sliced thin
1 jalapeno, sliced thin
Sriracha
 

Method

 

  1. Soft boil the eggs: Place the trivet and 1 C of water in your electric pressure cooker.  Use the "manual" setting and cook for 3 min.  When done, use quick release to release all pressure.  Then, remove eggs and place in an ice bath immediately.  If you like your eggs on the runny side, cook for only 2 min.
  2. Saute the aromatics: Empty remaining water and trivet from cooker (careful, it's hot!) Switch to "saute" mode and add sesame oil. Add onions and mushrooms and stir frequently until the onions begin to brown. Then add the ginger and garlic, stirring for about 1 min until they just start to brown.
  3. Make the broth: Add about 1/2 C of water so aromatics do not burn while you add the other ingredients.  Add miso paste and soy sauce and mix into the water. Carefully add pork loin and season with the salt and pepper. Last, add 7 more cups of water. Switch cooker to "manual" mode, put lid on making sure it is set to "sealing" and set pressure cooker to 20 min.  It will take 15-20 min to come to pressure, then 20 min to cook. When done cooking, use the quick release method to release pressure. Once all pressure is released, remove the lid and remove pork to a carving board to rest.
  4. Prep garnishes: While broth is cooking, slice and prep your desired toppings - soft boiled eggs, green onion, jalapeno, whatever you like!
  5. Finish the dish: Switch cooker back to "saute" mode.  Once bubbling, add carrots, cabbage, and noodles and cook according to package directions (usually 3 min for ramen noodles). Slice the pork thinly.  Serve by adding the soup to a bowl, then top with two slices of pork, and eggs and garnishes as desired.
