Go figure, my first cook post and it's loosely based on Q. Never the less here we go. I started with a couple boneless pork loin chops and set them to marinate 24 hours in Char Siu marinade that I lifted from Thirdeye.

I set up the Weber OTG for indirect heat with Royal Oak and hickory chips. I did a reverse sear bringing the pork to 130 before finishing them over direct heat while basting with the marinade.

For the ramen I made a broth of chicken stock, water, soy sauce, criminis, yellow onion and scallion. Just let it simmer and slightly reduce for one hour. I also did some fresh noodles, 6 minute eggs, sliced bamboo, wilted bok choy and sherry steamed white beech mushrooms.

Considering this was my first ever attempt at ramen I was pretty happy with the results. Man, this was so far outta my wheel house. It comes to me as no surprise that the pork was my favorite part. The smoke added a nice extra level of flavor for the broth. Thanks for looking. Cheers.

Looks great... like it'd fit in with most any ramen joint here on the island!

I'll bet that pork was excellent...

That looks great! I'm glad that you decided to enter it into the Asian throw down as well!
