Instant Pot Ramen Soup – Fresh ginger, garlic and mushroom bring together a rich and delicious homemade chicken stock. Add noodles, baby spinach and freshly shredded carrots to make it a meal.
Instant Pot Ramen
The Instant Pot really excels in creating a rich and delicious chicken broth from scratch in less than an hour, and it makes the most delicious homemade ramen soup! If you already have an Instant Pot, you probably know how quickly and easily it makes hard boiled eggs and soft boiled eggs. Well, these soft boiled eggs are the perfect topping to the ramen soup.
Start by sautéing the garlic and ginger in a little sesame oil. Add the mushroom, water, soy sauce, salt and pepper along with a whole chicken. I adapted this recipe from my Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup, but in this recipe I used a slightly smaller chicken so the ratio of chicken to noodles would be slightly smaller.
I love the addition of the mushroom to the broth. They added a really rich earthy flavor.
Cook for 20 minutes at High Pressure on Manual Mode, then remove the chicken and let cool before shredding. In the meantime, return the Instant Pot to a boil by using the Saute mode and cook the noodles. My grocery store only carries dried Udon noodles, which are slightly different than Ramen noodles, but they work great in this recipe. In a pinch, dried noodles from ramen packages can be used with the flavor packets discarded.
I sprinkled ours with sesame seeds and served with a soft boiled egg and it was divine!

Loved the recipe! The soup seems delicious. Me and my wife are going to try it this week.
This was my inaugural Instant Pot recipe. The soup was wonderful! Thanks!
My favorite Instant Pot recipe!!! So much flavor!
Absolutely DELICIOUS and EASY.
I added, sugar snap peas, cilantro, broccoli and used chicken broth instead of water.
Thank you for my first instapot recipe!
I make this with homemade broth, too, and the soup is so very rich! This is my absolute favorite IP recipe.
Made this tonight and it was delicious! So glad I saw this recipe.
Wonderful recipe. Did not make any changes. Turned out great. Chicken was tender. Sauce was plentiful and filled with flavor. I added soy sauce to the bowls before plating and that added the extra flavor boost at the end. Used ramen noodles. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone that wants to make ramen with little fuss.
First time using IP was this recipe. Tried and entire family loved it! Easy to follow instructions made it easy. I added a bit more soy sauce to my liking but was awesome recipe. Thx
What size is a serving of this soup in terms of cups? Thanks!
I absolutely love your chicken noodle soup. It’s the very first soup I made in my IP. I just came across this ramen saup and am anxious to try it. I’m just wondering if it would work with some cuts of chicken instead of a whole one? I found I didn’t need to use all the shredded chicken for the chicken noodle soup.
Oooh my goodness. . . . This was a hit. Even my finicky father-in-law asked for more! I cheated just a bit and used boneless chicken, cause it was a lazy day and I didnt want to debone the whole chicken. It still had alot of flavor. I also added 1/2 yellow onion at the saute time. Definitely will make this again. Glad I found your blog! Keep up the good work!
This was fabulous! I have always wanted to make a more authentic version of Japanese ramen. This recipe was so flavorful and satisfying! I only added a bit more soy sauce and a splash of rice vinegar. We garnished with chopped green onion, too. This will become a regular at our house!
This was amazing! I am always hesitant to make ethnic dishes off of Pinterest as they often turn out weird and Americanized. This one tastes surprisingly close to the ramen I have had in restaurants. Cooking the whole chicken in there adds SO much depth and flavor to the broth. I think you could throw in whatever veggies you happen to have and it would be fine. It’s the broth that really makes this dish. This was fast and easy to make and would be a great dinner on a cold day or if you’re feeling under the weather. Thanks for the recipe!
The soup is absolutely delicious! Thanks for a great recipe! Not sure what happened to the eggs, tho. The yolk was still completely runny and uncooked along with most of the whites. I’ll have to see if I did something wrong, but I thought I followed it exactly. The soup was so good though!

This is restaurant quality for sure! Love a good bowl of ramen! Perfect comfort food for me!
Love how this is so much more hearty than regular ramen! Can’t wait to try it!
Just adding a comment, that I’ve been making this recipe for over five years now on the regular for my family. It’s one of our favorites. If you’re just now finding this recipe, give it a try…you won’t be disappointed. So incredibly easy to make, yet gives a taste and feel of going out for some legit Ramen.
