Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
20 minutes
pork ramen


  • ⅓ cup chili garlic sauce
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 2 packages ramen noodles, seasoning packet removed
  • 1 tablespoon scallion whites, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 chili pepper, diced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon scallion greens, sliced for garnish
  • 1 soft-boiled egg


  1. Combine sauce ingredients and set aside. Preheat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, 4-5 minutes. While the skillet is heating, bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Lower saucepan heat to simmer. Add one egg and simmer for 6-½ minutes. Remove immediately to an ice bath for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Sauté scallion whites in the skillet for 1 minute. Add ground pork and cook until browned, breaking up with a spatula as it cooks, 7-8 minutes. 
  3. While the pork is cooking, make noodles according to packaging instructions, then drain (do not use seasoning packet). 
  4. Once the pork has cooked through, add sauce, peanuts, and chili pepper (optional).  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and add noodles. Toss to combine. 
  5. Top with soft boiled egg, cut in half. Garnish with green scallions.
