Spicy Pork Ramen

Kind of like the classic Japanese tantanmen, but simpler and with basic pantry ingredients!


  1. Pan fry the pork mince in a saucepan alongside the doubanjiang, adding in the soy sauces and sugar, until the mince is cooked through and mixed with the seasoning.
  2. Add in the peanut butter and a ladle of water and ensure it is mixed in properly. Add more water if needed.
  3. Add the rest of the water and the milk to the pan to make the broth. Season to taste.
  4. Cook some noodles of your choice and drain and set aside. Optional: blanch some pak choi to serve with the noodles later.
  5. In a bowl, assemble by pouring the broth with mince over the noodles, drizzling on some chilli oil, and serve with the pak choi. Slurp and enjoy!
