Shoyu Ramen with Pork Belly

Making homemade ramen, with noodles made from scratch, might seem daunting, but it’s actually much easier to do than you would guess, especially if you have a Philips Pasta Maker, which can be used to make ramen noodles. You’ll need to heat baking soda in the oven for an hour to make the baked soda, which gives the noodles their characteristic springy texture, but you can bake enough soda for several batches up to weeks in advance, so make some and keep it in the pantry for impromptu ramen dinners. You can also use purchased fresh ramen noodles, available in the refrigerator section of most Asian markets.
