Quick Shoyu Ramen

User Rating 5 Star Rating (5 Reviews)


No remen recipe is necessarily easy. In fact, making delicious ramen noodles can be quite difficult. After all, chefs in Japan usually train very hard to make quality ramen. This recipe however is a relatively quick and easy take on soy sauce flavored or shoyu ramen that you can make at home.

Shoyu is just one of several types of ramen. Other common categories include shio, tonkotsu and Miso ramen. Among these, the soy sauce version is noted for its tangy, salty and savory but light and usually (but not always) for its curly noodles.


  • 2 Chukamen noodles
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cup chicken soup stock
  • 1 cup kombu dashi soup stock
  • 1 Tbsp sake
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • For toppings: (optional)
  • chopped negi
  • nori (dried seaweed)
  • pepper


Heat sesame oil in a deep pan. Saute chopped ginger and garlic in the pan. Lower the heat. Add chicken soup stock and kombu dashi soup stock in the pan and bring to a boil. Add sugar, salt, sake, and soy sauce in the soup and bring to a boil again. Run the soup through a strainer. Serve hot soup into individual bowls. In the meantime, boil water in a large pan. Add Chukamen noodles in the boiling water and cook for a few minutes, or follow package directions. Drain the noodles and serve in the hot soup. Place toppings, such as chopped negi and nori seaweed. Sprinkle some pepper if you would like.

Great Ramen, Member rthack2

I made this ramen hoping to make something similar to shoyu ramen I would get at ramen houses I frequent. I think this recipe is as good or better. It's also easy to add different condiments or meat such as cha su pork.
