For the Broth:

  • 4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 piece of ginger, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Egg Drop:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Ramen:

  • 2 pack ramen noodles (discard the seasoning packets)
  • Sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Optional toppings: sliced mushrooms, baby spinach, corn kernels, and bean sprouts


  • Prepare the Broth:
    In a large pot, heat the chicken or vegetable broth over medium-high heat. Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Bring the broth to a gentle simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
  • Cook the Ramen Noodles:
    While the broth is simmering, cook the ramen noodles separately according to the package instructions. Drain the cooked noodles and set them aside.
  • Whisk the Eggs:
    In a bowl, whisk the eggs until well combined. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and add the thinly sliced green onions. Mix gently.
  • Egg Drop Technique:
    Once the broth is simmering, reduce the heat to low. While gently stirring the broth in a clockwise direction, slowly pour the beaten egg mixture into the pot in a thin, steady stream. The eggs will cook almost instantly, forming delicate ribbons in the soup. Turn off the heat.
  • Assemble Your Bowl:
    Divide the cooked ramen noodles among serving bowls. Carefully ladle the hot egg drop broth over the noodles.
