Prepare birria ramen

This fusion dish combines the rich and savory flavors of traditional Japanese ramen with the spicy and flavorful Mexican dish, Birria. The result is a unique and satisfying bowl of noodles that will impress any guest.



  1. Prepare birria ramen

    3.5 hours, plus time to marinate
    • Heat a large pan to medium heat and add the dried peppers. Dry toast them in the hot pan 1-2 minutes per side, until the skins darken.
    • Transfer the toasted peppers to a bowl and combine with 1 cup boiling water. Cover with a lid and let stand until soft, about 10 minutes.
    • While the peppers are rehydrating, heat the vegetable oil in the same pan to medium heat. Add the onion and tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Then, add the garlic and cook another 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
    • Transfer the cooked onion, tomatoes, and garlic to a food processor. Add in the spices, chili, and 2 cups of prepared Knorr® Professional Liquid Concentrated Base Beef and blend until smooth. Set aside.
    • In a large container with a lid, combine the mixture with the beef chunks until well coated. Marinate the meat in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 4 hours.
    • After the meat is finished marinating, add meat and marinate to a large stock pot. Add remaining prepared Knorr® Professional Liquid Concentrated Base Beef. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce to a simmer for 3 hours, or until the meat is tender. Then remove meat and shred.
    • Serve with ramen noodles and top with green onion and radish.
    TIP: Control the thickness of the birria by increasing or decreasing the amount of beef stock. Some prefer a soupier consistency, while others prefer the dish to be slightly thicker.
