  • 4-5 lb oxtail bones
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 bundles dry ramen noodles
  • 1/3 cup white miso paste
  • 3-4 tbsp gochujang
  • 2 tbsp gochugaru
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 1/4 inch ginger knob
  • 2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp msg.
  • 1 large kombu strip


  • Salsa macha
  • 4 eggs
  • Scallions
  • Shredded oxtail
  • Furikake to taste


  • Soak your oxtail bones in clean water for a couple hours to remove excess blood
  • Add your oxtail bones to a large pot with the onion and fill with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 8-10 hrs but a minimum of 6. Keep adding water as needed. The broth should look milky-ish
  • Strain the broth, saving the oxtails. Remove the excess fat
  • Shred the meat off the oxtail bones
  • Strain the broth to a pot and lightly simmer. You should have about 3.5-4 qt of broth at this point
  • Bring a pot of water to a boil, boil your eggs for 6 min if you want them runny or 7 for firmer. Once done, let them sit on an ice bath
  • Mix the gochujang, miso, msg, sesame oil, tamari, vinegar and gochugaru. Grate in the ginger and garlic. Whisk well
  • Once the broth is simmering, add in the kombu. Pour the miso base into a strainer and lower it into the simmering broth. Let it sit for 5 min then lift it, whisking as much of the paste as you can on the strainer but discard whatever is left on it
  • Let the broth simmer for 15 min, so it doesn’t reduce or thicken too much. Taste it at this point, and add salt only if needed
  • Boil your ramen according to package instruction
  • Divide the ramen into 4 bowls, top it with the piping hot broth. Add in the egg, scallions, salsa macha, lemon, shredded oxtail and furikake
