I remember a few weeks ago looking at my browser – repeatedly, I would see this same ad. I finally, figured it was a demand that I reach out to this company and so I did. I was sent samples, and now we get to try them! When I initially saw their offerings, I thought these were boil in bag or microwave varieties. That’s not the case – they’re cook on stove – and I’m really curious how they’re going to be. Well, let’s find out!
Poco Kitchen Pork & Ginger Ramen – United States
The back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains chicken and pork. To prepare, add packet contents to 2 cups water and stir. Bring to a boil, cover, and turn down to simmer for 4 minutes. Take off the heat, shake noodles with fork, and cover for 5 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!
Here’s is what you’ll see before cooking.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu, hard boiled egg, narutomaki, spring onion, sesame seed, and Fresno pepper. Noodles are thin with a little bit of backbone which worked well. The broth is thick and definitely strong on flavor. Lots of depth and richness – the balance of miso and ginger are very nice. I should mention the broth is very rich, yet it’s not extremely heavy as well which was interesting. Yeah – this was both compelling and delightful – worth a try; that’s for certain. It’s official – after years of not liking red miso, it looks as if it’s grown on me, especially in this variety. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 850030860002.
