Re: What did you cook tonight?

Miso ramen yesterday. Mostly following RamenLord's recipe. Eight hour pork and chicken stock, miso tare, chashu, egg. Miso brings great texture to the broth. Easier than an eighteen hour true tonkatsu stock. Beauty! Do you have an instant pot for stocks yet? It is worth it for those alone. Bone bro...

Salsa verde is one of my favorite things. It also led me to the knowledge that I love all things green sauce. If you make green goddess, Chimichurri, pebre, strongly herbed and acidic anything, I am a fan. Salsa verde is a springboard. And to clarify, yeah I roast mine first. 😋
