Ramen is a Japanese-style bowl of broth and noodles. In this version, miso is added to an already rich broth and spiced with chiles. Adding miso to ramen broth makes a unique version that is dense, flavorful and delicious. Make Ramen Eggs and Chasu Pork Belly in advance to top the ramen.
In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, brown the pork for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, ginger, green onions, mushrooms and konbu until fragrant. Stir in the miso, sesame oil, mirin, sugar, salt, sesame oil, chile-garlic sauce and white pepper. Add the stock and water. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes (do not boil). Taste and adjust the seasoning. Remove the seaweed before serving.
Hold the broth warm while assembling the bowls; do not boil. Bring to a near boil just before serving over the noodles and garnishes such as ramen eggs, chashu pork belly, green onions, bean sprouts and nori sheets.
