{{ count }} persons


+60 minutes


  1. 800g pork loin or pork breast
  2. Medium boiled eggs (1pc per bowl of ramen)
  3. 1.5 dl of soy
  4. 1.5 dl of water
  5. 1 tablespoon mirin
  6. Finely chopped ginger (about the size of a thumb)
  7. 1 crushed garlic clove
  8. 1 spring onion (coarsely chopped)

Course of action

  • Tie the pork belly into a roll and cook it for approx. two hours. You can use the cooked soup as a base for a tonkotsu ramen.
  • Boil eggs - smiling. Peel them and put them in cold water to stop the cooking.
  • When the pork has cooked for two hours with the soup, it is taken out and left to cool.
  • Put all the remaining ingredients for the layer in a small saucepan and give it a quick boil. Let it cool.
  • When the eggs, pork and brine have cooled, put them in a plastic bag. The air is sucked out of the bag until a vacuum is formed so that all surfaces of eggs and pork are covered with brine.
  • Put the bag in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Preferably 12-24 hours. Of course, this requires you to do it the whole day before, but you can also do that with advantage if you are going to have guests.
