Naruto Ichiraku Ramen
1-2lbs pork cutlet
1 3/4 cup Mr Yoshida's Original Gourmet Marinade & Cooking Sauce
1/2 cup Lee Kum Kee Chicken Marinade
600g cake flour
100g all purpose flour
6g baking soda
Fresh green onions
Preparing the Broth:
Cut off pork strips from your pork cutlet. These should be thick and contain the fat and the meat of the pork. You should have bones and scraps left over. Put these in a pot, fill it with water and bring it to a boil. Scoop the scum off of the top and reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. You can simmer this broth for anywhere from 2-4 hours. When it's done, place the entire pot in the refrigerator overnight. Take the pot out after it has coagulated and scoop off the fat that has combined at the top and reheat.
Preparing the pork:
In a pot, add your 1 3/4 cup Mr Yoshida's Marinade and 1/2 cup Lee Kum Kee Chicken Marinade. Take your cut pork strips and dip them into the liquid making sure to coat both sides. Place pot on heat and bring to a boil, flipping the pork inside every now and then. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Pro tip! Place a toothpick in between the lid and the pot in order to let air escape so your pot does not boil over. Cook this for 2 hours or until the pork is completely cooked through. Remove the pork from the liquid and store.
Hard boiled eggs:
Hard boil 2-4 eggs. Remove the shells. In the same mixture as the pork preparation, place the eggs and let them soak for 2 hours. Remove afterwards and store.
Hand Pulled Noodles:
Combine the dry ingredients into a mixer and combine. Add in the water and mix on medium high (a 4 on our kitchenaid) for 12 minutes. You will know the consistency is ready when it can be pulled easily and does not tear. Watch videos below to see a more indepth explanation. From here either hand pull your noodles or cut them in a similar fashion to the Legend of Korra Water Tribe noodles. Cook them in boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until ready.

Preparing the ramen ingredients:
Chop your fresh cilantro and green onions. Cook the spinach in boiling water for 10-15 seconds then remove and squeeze the water out. Chop into segments. Slice off the Naruto Maki. Slice off sections of your pork. Cut your eggs in half.
Add broth to your noodles and place ramen ingredients on top in the bowl. Serve piping hot!
