  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place eggs in the water and keep at rapid boil for 6 minutes and 45 seconds.
  2. Fill a large mixing bowl with cold water and lots of ice. Remove eggs from boiling water and put directly into ice bath. Let eggs cool for 5 minutes, then gently crack the egg on a hard surface loosening the shell on all sides. If you peel them in the ice bath, it should make it a little easier to remove the shell.
  3. Combine ¾ cup tamari, 3 tbsp mirin, and ½ tbsp sesame oil  in a small bowl, then whisk to combine. Place peeled eggs in the soy sauce marinade, then cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, turning once halfway through.
  4. Add pork belly, stock, cloves, Chinese five spice, sesame oil, and soy sauce to instant pot set on high pressure, cook for 22 minutes and allow it to naturally release for 15 minutes before removing the lid.
  5. Set oven to broil and place pork belly in to crisp up the skin, about 7 minutes.
  6. Thinly slice the pork belly and set aside
  7. Add the onion, green onion, ginger, garlic and bonito flakes to the strained pork belly broth and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Strain again to remove the vegetables and bonito flakes
  9. Cook ramen noodles to the direction on the package
  10. Pour broth into a large bowl, add the ramen noodles and top with soy cured egg, daikon kimchi, pork belly and kimchi. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve HOT!
