These Instant Pot Ramen Bowls feature a delicious and flavorful broth infused with garlic, ginger, onion, and mushrooms. This one-pot recipe is a tasty way to jazz up ramen!
Sodium is always a super personal matter and also depends greatly on the type of soy sauce and broth used. Feel free to customize this to taste, as you can always add less soy sauce to begin with and add more later if desired. For a spicy ramen bowl, feel free to swirl some chili sauce into the broth as well!
Add all ingredients except for noodles and toppings to your Instant Pot. Seal the lid and vent and set to 5 minutes HIGH PRESSURE on manual.
It'll take about 10-12 minutes to come to pressure and 5 minutes active cooking time. When the Instant Pot beeps, quick release the pressure by flipping the valve from sealing to venting. Steer clear of the steam as it should shoot out pretty fast! Once the pressure has released the lid will unlock.
Remove the lid and switch the pot to the sauté function. Add your ramen noodles and cook for approx. 3-4 minutes or cook according to package instructions. Once the noodles are tender you're good to go. Stir the ramen into the broth and divide into two large bowls. Pile high with toppings and add any additional seasoning to taste. Enjoy!
I can't typically find fresh at my grocery store so I opt for the dried noodles from the International Foods aisle. I like to use about 4-6 oz noodles here but you can adjust this to taste.
My favorite ramen to use is a little less traditional, as it's not fried and does not come with a seasoning packet. They're labeled as KA-ME Curly Noodles (Chuka Soba) and are a great healthier option for ramen bowls! They're also pretty easy to find! I've found them at Publix, Target, and on Amazon.
Cook time above includes the time it takes for your Instant Pot to come to pressure (approx. 10 minutes), an active cook time of 5 min, and approx. 3-4 min for the noodles to cook in the pot. If preferred you can cook the noodles in a separate pot and add to the broth once finished. Both methods work great!
For a brother, soup-like ramen bowl feel free to add an extra cup of broth and adjust seasoning to taste. Enjoy!
