Ingredients

Eggs:

Kosher salt

4 large eggs 

1/2 cup soy sauce 

1/3 cup sake 

3 tablespoons sugar 

Soup:

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 clove garlic, minced 

One 1-inch piece ginger, sliced thinly on the bias 

1 bunch scallions, finely chopped 

1 1/2 teaspoons sriracha 

3 tablespoons miso, preferably red, but any color is fine 

4 cups chicken broth 

1 tablespoon unsalted butter 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

20 ounces fresh or frozen ramen or Chinese wheat noodles or four 3-ounce packages instant ramen noodles (discard soup seasoning packets) 

One .35-ounce package toasted seaweed 

Directions

  1. For the eggs: Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the eggs, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook 6 minutes. Drain and run under cool water until cool, then peel.
  2. Combine the soy sauce, sake and sugar with 1 cup water in a medium bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the eggs and place plastic wrap directly on the surface to help submerge the eggs. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours and up to overnight.
  3. For the soup: Heat the sesame oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger and half of the scallions (reserve the rest for garnish) and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the sriracha and stir, 30 seconds. Stir in the miso, then gradually add the chicken broth and 2 cups water, whisking. Simmer, partially covered, 10 minutes. Whisk in the butter and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Slice the marinated eggs in half.
  5. Cook the noodles according to their package instructions. Drain and divide among 4 bowls. Divide the soup among the bowls and top with the egg halves, remaining scallions and seaweed. Serve immediately.
