Directions

GETTING READY

For the Ramen Noodles:

1. In a pot, cook the ramen noodles in boiling water for 3 - 4 minutes until done. Strain and transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.

2. Add the beaten egg and combine until the noodles are evenly coated.

3. Take the noodles, divide them into 2 equal portions, and put them into ring moulds, as shown in the video. Pack them and weigh them down so that they can set in the shape of your ‘buns’. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

MAKING

For the Beef Teriyaki:

4. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, mirin, sugar, sake (if using) and dashi. Mix well and set aside.

5. Heat up a small pot over medium heat with a bit of oil. Add the yellow onions and saute until the onions are lightly caramelized.

6. Then, add the beef. Cook until the beef starts to cook and change colour.

7. Next, add the prepared sauce mixture and continue cooking until the beef is done and the sauce is thickened to your liking.

8. When the noodles are set, they should pop out of the moulds easily. Take them and keep them aside.

9. Heat up an oiled skillet over medium high heat and fry the noodles until they are slightly browned and warmed through.

FINALIZING

10. Assemble the burger by piling some of the beef and sauce mixture between the noodle patties.

SERVING

11. Serve warm and enjoy!

TIPS

The ramen noodle bun holds up well to the sauce. You can of course enjoy them with hamburger patties, katsu, fried oysters, etc, as per your taste and preference.
