How to make a Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen with an Instant Pot (Recipe)

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Tonkotsu ramen is by far the most popular style of ramen in the US. Unfortunately for me, it’s also my weakest style, mostly because I don’t make it very often. This is a method of making a real tonkotsu ramen using an instant pot or pressure cooker. It cuts about 6 hours of cook time as long as you do your bone prep a day in advanced. Spicy tonkotsu is a pretty American way of eating tonkotsu ramen, but its popular for a reason, it’s pretty delicious. The ra-yu I made needs some tweaking but it was still a tasty bowl. If you try this at home, be sure to adjust the thickness of your soup with water after you strain. you can always blend it again to re-establish the emulsion.

Soup (6-8 servings):
2.2kg Pork Bones
Tiny Piece of Pork Trotter
3.5L Water
1L Water (added after pressure cooking)
3-4 cloves of garlic

150ml Canola Oil
50ml Sesame Oil
20g Korean Chili Powder
10g Ichimi Togarashi
