Enjoyed the world over, this Japanese staple is savory, satisfying and delicious.  Balanced with plenty of protein and vegetable goodness this recipe ticks every flavor box out there.  The sweet/saltiness of the soy sauce and the aromatic garlic and onion create a harmonious backdrop for the toothsome noodles and out-of-this-world pork.
The best part of using a slow cooker for ramen? You can cook the eggs within the broth, such that the flavors of the broth soak through.

The apple juice, mustard and vinegar add a tasty zing to the dish that will make your mouth water! For this recipe I recommend searing the pork chops in a pan before adding them to your slow cooker.

A fantastic dish so good, it stands alone as a full meal, but could also work beautifully as a dreamy side to roasted chicken.
