    Anyway, I love making homemade Ramen and I can NEVER find (good) meat that is sliced thin enough to cook when the broth is poured over it…and 99% of the time the only protein I end up with is an egg. BUT…..my local butcher will do hotpot slices!!
    So, you’ve made me a very happy woman!!!! ��������
