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.
