Crock pot ramen is the most epic recipe for cold weather! Hearty, rich and satisfying, this pork ramen soup will keep you warm this winter.
Slow Cooker Pork Ramen Soup
It’s slow cooker season and I’m excited to bring you not only this great crock pot ramen soup recipe, but 11 other slow cooker soup recipes as well. That’s right folks, 12 bloggers is back, and we’ll be presenting you with some seasonal treats on the 12th of each month for all of 2015.
There are only two things I like about winter. Soup, and amazing winter sunsets. If it weren’t for these things, I would likely hibernate until April.
I’ve been loving ramen this winter, and figured what better dish to adapt to a crock pot than ramen? What I love about soups like this is that each bowl can be customized with an array of condiments.
Let your slow cooker do the work creating a flavorful, aromatic broth and tender meat, then let your family create their own, personalized bowl of soup. I like mine with less noodles and tons of vegetables, and The Hubs likes his with extra jalapeño slices and a generous squirt of Sriracha.
The spicier the better!
You’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. My 12 bloggers crew have enough slow cooker recipes to keep your crock pot full until spring, so be sure to click around and check out all their rad offerings.

This ramen soup just looks so hearty and comforting. I can’t say that I use my slow cooker often.. so this recipe is perfect for me to use it!
Maya @ Treats and Eats says
This sounds perfect for winter and looks delicious! I love ramen but almost never make it at home- but this sounds so easy I think I’ll need to make it soon!
Sounds amazing. Wish you had a print button! 🙂
Never mind! I found it!
I love the idea of slow cooker Ramen but I’m a vegetarian. Any ideas of how this good be veggie-fied??
Absolutely! Just use veggie broth and add more veg like bok choy, roasted squash or sweet potato, or even quinoa or barley
I am pretty obsessed with ramen and want to start trying to make it at home – this might have to be the recipe I start with. It looks delicious!
This looks soooo delish!!
Question: When I made pork shoulder in my crock pot before for tamales, it had a LOT of fat that cooked out and turned into grease puddles on top of the liquid. Do you have that problem with this recipe? And if so, how did you fix it? Thanks!
I did not have that problem but I guess it depends on how fatty your piece of meat is. If it seems really fatty, I would skim the top of the liquid after you remove the shoulder before shredding it and adding the meat back in.
I love Asian-inspired soups so I was really excited to try this. I have it in the slow cooker right now and I am really concerned that there is too much rice wine vinegar in this recipe, it is very strongly acidic smelling… I would actually say it smells really awful. Is this normal? Will the taste still be okay or have I done something wrong?
I had no problem with the 1/4 cup the recipe calls for. Good luck! I’m not sure why it smells so bad
Hello there! It did end up tasting good, just a little bit sour for my personal taste. I think in the future I will start off with a bit less of the vinegar, but I will make again. Thank you! 🙂
Wow you are hot Betsy. Congrats on that! Also this soup looks great.
Hot Betsy rocks!
If I wanted to make this for lunch for the week, would it keep? Or would the noodles break up?
I ate mine for about 3 days with no issues with the noodles
Hi! I’m planning on making this in a couple days, but I work a 12-hr shift. Would it 12 hours on low be too long to cook the pork? Could it ruin the pork or dry it out?
Just put it on the lowest setting your slow cooker will go on, and you should be fine
I made it tonight and my husband and I enjoyed it! Thanks! So easy and yet flavorful!
Can’t wait to make this! What kind of chili paste did you use? Like a Thai red chili paste? Just wondering what to look for when I go to the store tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks!
I used Huy Fong Sambal Oelek
Where do u find the chili paste in the store? I couldn’t find it
I get it in the asian food aisle by the sriracha
I’ll have it your way, with noodles and much much vegetables!

This recipe is so easy and so delicious! I prepped all of the main ingredients and pork the night before and let it marinate in the fridge. Before leaving for work, I turned the crock pot on and let the pork cook all day. It literally fell apart when I removed it to shred. Definitely adding this to my winter recipe rotation!
As the boyfriend said (after two bowl fulls) ‘you can make this recipe any time!’ Thanks Betsy!

This looks so good! How could I do this recipe more quickly, maybe without the crockpot?
You’d have to buy already prepared pork
