I made a dinner that Zack said it "tasted like it came from an authentic Japanese restaurant". So I thought I'd share the recipe because it's SO easy as well and it's great for the nights when you don't have much in the fridge.
Ingredients for broth:
4 cups water
1 ramen noodles seasoning package (preferably Sapporo Ichiban)
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. mirin
1 Tbs. rice wine vinegar
2 tsp. sesame oil
Combine all ingredients and simmer in covered pot.
Cooked noodles (I used udon, but ramen or rice noodles would work wonderfully as well)
Green onions, sliced
Lightly stir fried or steamed veggies (I used broccoli, bamboo shoots & mushrooms)
Hard boiled eggs
Meat or shrimp (perfect if you have a little bit of leftovers)
I assembled the noodles in the bottom of a bowl, covered with the broth and toppings. I like spicy so I added chili paste and sriracha.
