Recipe Summary

Difficulty Level: 
Main Dish
Meat, Pig Feet
Japanese Pork Bone Broth Ramen
In the wonderful world of authentic ramen, Tonkotsu broth is the Holly Grail of noodle soup broths. It’s decadently thick and rich with the collagen and fat from pork marrow bones that have been simmered for hours until you get an almost milky white broth. Given the availability of reasonably good packaged ramens, and one bowl meals, most sane people in Japan don’t undertake the challenge of making ramen at home from scratch. This recipe is either for the clinically insane, or the seriously hardcore foodie

Actually it's JAPANESE not Korean, Tonkotsu is even a Japanese word. Koreans have their own ramen yes. But I think they adapted it from the Japanese.
