My teens love anime, and inspired by their favorite anime, Naruto, we decided to try making our own ramen. It was incredibly filling and yummy. Way better both taste-wise and health-wise than the packets you can buy in the grocery store.

We started with 2 pork roasts which were on sale for 99 cents a pound. I placed each one in a crock pot, added a bit of salt, and turned on low for 24 hours. After the initial 24 hours, we strained the pork from the broth, let cool, and pulled the pork apart, making sure to discard any bone.

We made two different recipes. The first one:

The pork we just pulled apart

1 tsp ground ginger

4 T soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

2 cans Japanese stir-fry veggies

The Second one is Barbecue Pork Ramen:

The pork we just pulled apart

2 C ketchup

1/3 C brown sugar

3 cloves garlic

1 T apple cider vinegar

1 T worcestershire sauce

1 T mustard

We put some hard boiled egg halves and chopped green onions on the table to top it with, along with some homemade noodles.
