    How much electricity are you using to make the ramen soup mix, and in the previous video to dry the ramen? What is, in other words the total cost? You seem like a guy that would think about and consider this @ Alex. Cost of ingredients, electricity/energy, but leaving out cost of labor.

    Thats not really charring, you're simply burning the outer layer as you are not creating a maillardic reaction within the actual vegetable as heat penetrates into it - which at the end is what releases the flavor you are looking for. Thickness matters which is why one of those burners works magical for caramelizing the sugar layer on a creme brulée, or thinly cut of fish on a piece of sushi... no on a vegetable like a whole garlic.

    Hey Alex - love your channel, keep up the good work!
    I got a question about the bowl cover for your ramen: Is it - like so many other things - a diy or is a bought item? If it is diy, maybe you have a tip on how to make one and what to do to make it foodsafe?

    Great job, I love how you use pork and chicken for the broth. Like 90% of ramen from japan! No clue why people think the broth is Dashi based. It's rare to see a Dashi based ramen broth. Keep up the good work! I just watched all the ramen videos and I'm running to store for everything to make everything but the noodles. I'll try making the noodles when i get a good pasta machine. I'll comment back on how it turns out. To the Asian market I go.

    • Adam nottelling
      Adam nottelling 4 months ago

      His recipe calls for "dry" Coriander which is not coriander powder. In short the coriander powder is made from coriander seeds. Dried Coriander is the leafs (AKA cilantro if you live in the USA anywhere else its Coriander) is just dried Coriander(AKA cilantro in the USA) they have 2 different flavors and are 2 different parts of the same plant. I guess the coriander powder would work its different but similar.
      Coriander powder all over the world is from the seeds and he used dried coriander leafs (AKA cilantro in the USA)

      This is made confusing if you live in the USA. In the USA Cilantro is what the rest of the world calls Coriander. Normally if something calls for Coriander and its not in america it is the leafs of the coriander plant (AKA cilantro in USA) If they are wanting the seeds in america we just say coriander in the rest of the world they say coriander seeds.

    I spent two years in Japan and got spoiled on their streetcorner ramen shops. It was the best food I had ever had and no cheese was involved. Now, mind you, I am now a vegetarian leaning towards vegan and this poses a difficulty for tasty, rich, ramen lovers. When I returned to the states, I found how lacking and uninspired the American versions of Japanese ramen were, especially in the more rural areas where I live. Japanese ramen is restricted to plastic baggies. Even in Japanese restaurants, good ones, ramen isn't on their menus because it is highly specialized and takes a unique set of culinary skills to produce quickly and deliciously. This is probably going to change as people get more cultured and refined in their love of great ramen.
    Thank you Alex for your ramen research and development. I think the West can outdo the Japanese in their love of ramen in time.

    Hi Alex! I know I'm late to the ramen party but I just found your channel and I love ramen too! There is a ramen shop near me that makes ramen with a pork bone broth and it is DIVINE! I could easily Google how to make bone broth but I love your videos and would like to see how you would make bone broth ramen.
