Ingredients

1 pound beef tri-tip (roast beef would also work)

1/4 cup garlic powder

1/4 cup paprika

2 ounces salt, plus more for seasoning

3 romaine lettuce hearts, halved lengthwise

Olive oil

2 gallons chicken stock

2 cups dark brown sugar

8 ounces smoked bacon, chopped into thick pieces

1 cup fish sauce

1 ounce lime juice

1 pound fresh ramen noodles

1 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves picked

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

1 bunch breakfast radishes, thinly sliced

3 soft-boiled eggs, (boil for 8 minutes)

Chili flakes (preferably Korean)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Preheat a grill to medium heat.
  2. Rub the beef with the garlic powder, paprika and salt and roast until medium rare, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let cool, then thinly slice.
  3. Coat the romaine hearts with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill for 1 minute 30 seconds per side, and then set aside to cool.
  4. Bring the chicken stock to a simmer in a large pot and add the sugar and bacon. Simmer until reduced by one-third, and then stir in the fish sauce and lime juice.
  5. Bring 2 gallons of water to a boil in a large pot. Drop in the noodles and cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, using tongs to separate and fluff the noodles in the water. Drain and divide among 6 bowls. Top each bowl with sliced beef, the cilantro, jalapenos and radishes. Slice the soft-boiled eggs in half lengthwise and sprinkle with chili flakes before adding one half to each bowl. Pour enough hot broth into each bowl, so that there is twice as much broth as noodles.
