OMG!!!! So good!! i was a bit worried about boiling the bacon then frying it up, I thought it would be a little flavorless. So I used some reserved bacon grease when i did fry it up sprinkled with some salt and it turned out great! The broth is rich and delish! I added some baby bok choy and everyone loved it!

ok for the first attempt at making ramen...couldn't find mirin...used rice vinegar as a substitute.

Really good!! The directions for cooking the egg for only 6 minutes are PERFECT!! I added a bit extra seasoning to the broth before serving as it was a tad blend, but as the directions say, season to taste. This is such an amazing meal that we have made 3 times in the last week in a half lol. Such an easy but delicious recipe. Thanks!!!
