Once upon a time, I used to think that ramen only came in a pack. And while the instant ramen craze was a staple during my college days, I’ve since explored some homemade ramen recipes. This authentic tonkatsu instant pot ramen recipe is great for when the Asian cravings hit. The pork broth is made with just real pork bones and a few other ingredients, and the chashu pork on top just seals the deal. Definitely give this a try if you’re a fan of Japanese food.
