My version of a Japanese pork and egg noodle soup recipe from a magazine but mine is easier to make. You can simply pour the soup over rice if you prefer.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place mushrooms in a small bowl and cover with water. Let soak until softened, about 15 minutes. Drain and cut into bite-size pieces.

  • Bring 1 1/2 cup water to a boil in a pot. Add pork and bamboo shots. Cook, skimming off any fat that rises to the top, until pork is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix sugar, sake, soy sauce, black rice vinegar, and chile paste together in a small bowl. Stir into the pot. Reduce heat to low and simmer soup, covered, about 10 minutes.

  • Stir mushroom pieces into the soup. Crack in eggs and cook, covered, until whites are firm and the yolks have thickened but are not hard, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Drizzle sesame oil over soup before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute balsamic vinegar for the black rice vinegar if desired.

You can beat the eggs and pour them into the pot instead of adding them whole.

Made as written and this was okay but I feel it could have been better with a couple of changes. The first and most important being to use broth instead of water. Pork just doesn't have enough flavor boiled in water to make a flavorful enough broth for this type of soup. On that note next time I would fry my pork in the soup pot with sesame oil until it got a good brown on it. Then I'd add the stock and go from there. While the bamboo shoots add a nice texture they don't have much if any flavor on their own and just take on the flavor of what they are cooked with. I think this soup needs a vegetable of some sort. I'd add snow peas or even a handful of frozen peas next time. I'm still giving this 4 stars but with a couple of tweaks it could easily become a 5. Read More
