This recipe suggests soft-boiled eggs, but if you already have hard-boiled eggs in your refrigerator, we don't think it makes much difference. Go for it. Traditional ramen takes hours of attended simmering. The slow cooker lets things develop flavor over eight hours, while you're off doing something else, like working, spending time with family and friends, or otherwise engaged in productive activities and enjoying life. Homemade chicken or pork broth would make this soup so much better, but like the noodles, you don't have to stick to the original Japanese way. Just use ginger though. It's good.
