You Can’t Call It Ramen Without Using タレ...

  • Published on Jan 13, 2018
  • The Perfect Bowl of Ramen needs Tare ( Seasoning Sauce or タレ in Japanese). I share 3 recipes to get you started : Shio Tare, Shoyu Tare and Miso Tare. It’s the main seasoning of Ramen Noodle Soup, and the whole Flavor Profile depends on it.

    This comment will never probably be seen by Alex... but, why didn't you put the tare in bottles?

    I really enjoyed how much you enjoy cooking. I have watched this before and I love your facial expressions and gestures. You look like this stuff is so good I just want to die eating it.

    I just moved to Japan and bought the exact same soy sauce. Dont know if it is the greatest but I like it. (Second ramen)

    The miso tare skipped a step, where you drain the stock and get rid of the boiled mirepoix.

    I'm surprised you never found a source that told you to never boil miso.
    Boiling miso tastes really kills the flavour.

    Just wanted to ask if the same miso tare can be done without the anchovies as they are hard to find in India!

    Nice recipes! But I have to suggest: never boil miso. It is fermented foods so its has lots of good digestive benefits, but only if they aren't boiled off. maybe at the end of reducing the rest of the tare, add it at the end?

    Shouldn't you dilute 9 teaspoons of water with one of Tare? Otherwise it's a 1 in 11 dilution not 1 in 10?

    Alex, there is one BIG question I have... What if I would mix shoyu and miso tare together 50/50...Do you think that would create better flavor than not combined?

    Good to know : unlike the broth this one won't freeze. But you can freeze some Dashi and cook the rest just before ramen. (Edit : Talking about Shoyu Tare)

    Alex, wonderful video. But have you ever had real Tonkotsu Ramen (white pork broth) in a Japanese ramen shop? It is the gold standard. Nothing else comes close imo. It's liquid Foie Gras and it's the iconic ramen.

    an advice from a japanese Alex, you should let konbu or niboshi (dried anchovy) soak in water at leat overnight before you boil them. That's gonna make more umami flavor to get out to the dashi!

    boiling miso paste kills all the good stuff thats in it. Avoid boiling it and just stir it in at the end
