You might or might not know, but I joined Hello Fresh last month. I was looking for a little help so I could still get dinner on my table, while being super swamped getting one of our rentals up and running. I choose to have Hello Fresh get delivered on Sundays, I have the subscription set for 4 people, 4 times a week. I am loving it! The food has been super delicious!! It has been really nice not having to do a lot of grocery shopping.
I have another fantastic Ramen recipe I think you should check out, it is a bit more robust in flavor and beef based. Both are so delicious. I am happy to add another ramen to my repertoire. I hope you try both and let me know what you think!
*Note: This was a meal that I got delivered. It came with chicken and pork stock concentrate. I am not sure how easy it is to find pork concentrate, I will go look when I make this next. But just using all chicken stock would be just fine.
