When you’re in the mood for ramen, but don’t want to spend the two days it usually takes to make broth and chashu pork belly from scratch – Trader Joe’s to the rescue! Every single ingredient for this meal is from Trader Joe’s, I’ll show you how I spruced up their Instant Ramen so it feels like you’re eating at a restaurant. For a complete meal, enjoy Trader Joe’s Gyoza as an appetizer and have their Mochi Ice Cream for dessert!
Ingredients for the Ramen, I used Spicy Miso for mine.
A few Ramen Toppings
The perfect appetizer for this meal: Trader Joe’s Pork Gyoza dipped in Trader Joe’s Gyoza Sauce, if you want to make them with the crispy lace, see my recipe here.
For dessert, we enjoyed a few pieces of Trader Joe’s Mochi Ice Cream, let them sit out at room temp for about 3-4 minutes so the mochi gets soft. My two favorite flavors are Green Tea and Strawberry
