Dear chef-talk gentlemen
I am a home cook and i tried making ramen before and a matter came up on my mind so i have a question regarding something in japanese ramen.
Now i know ramen consists of 4 common parts which are the soup, tare or style, noodles, and toppings my question is regarding the soup. I always see broth or stock used as the soup i never seen stews, braises, meat jus, gravy or others used in ramen.
how come and would it be possible to use them as soup or is there a certain rule or reason that these can be used?
Therefore i am requesting your input on this matter and please help me on this getting this inquiry solved.
