When we eat ramen at home, commonly buy in semi-dried ramen noodle which usually come with individual condensed soup package. Then I boil water and cook the noodle and combine boiled hot water and the reduced soup to make soup for ramen. Also I often cook sauteed vegetables and soft boiled egg for the garnish.
However, since regularly the condensed soup contains MSG, and my body react badly; it makes my cheek and around the mouth swell, uncomfortable.
In my research, it is common to add pork flavor to ramen soup since the pork contains "umami" . This recipe is cooking braised pork, and the seasoning for pork can be used as ramen soup without MSG just combine with chicken stock. If you have miso, add some miso paste (1tsp to 2 tsps reduce the pork seasoning) into the ramen soup, which is your original yummy miso-ramen.
