For this recipe, we take a certain South-East Asian turn. I personally love eating udon noodles. The noodles and whatever meat they’re cooked with is delicious, and the broth is filling enough for you to eat what one would call a healthy meal. Furthermore, this recipe is very, very easy. And finally, it’s one of those labor-less 1 pot needing recipes. What more could you ask for?
Now I made this recipe with pork steaks, but the beauty of it is that it could be made with chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, seafood, pork, or even veggies. And better yet, it can be made with a combination of those, and it’ll taste just as great, if not better.
And now, the list (for 2 servings):
- 1 pack Udon noodles
- 1 veggie stock cube
- 1 beef stock cube
- 300 g pork steaks – stripe sliced
- 4 chopped mushrooms
- 1 wing-chopped medium sized onion
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 eggs
- 2 pinches of basil
- 3 pinches of salt
- 2 pinches of pepper
- 2 pinches of chives
- 2 chopped spring onions
- 1 pinch chili flakes
- 1 pinch ground ginger
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4-5 cups of water
- Soy sauce (adjust to taste)
Start by heating a medium sized pot on high heat, add the oil, pork, onions, garlic, mushrooms, green onions, salt, pepper, basil, chives, oregano, and ginger. Keep stirring until the pork is cooked on the outside, then stir for 1 or 2 more minutes. We don’t want the pork to be fully cooked just yet, as we want the boiling water to cook it and absorb away part of its taste. When this is over, add the water, chili flakes, and stock cubes, and bring the heat to low. Cover the pot and let the mixture simmer for 10-12 minutes. Bring the heat to medium and add the noodles. Now the noodles I use are usually ready in 3 minutes, but it all depends on what kind you buy.
And now for the eggs: break the eggs and add them as they are, in the middle of everything, like this:
then keep stirring until everything’s cooked (both whites and yolks). The whole process should take more than 3 minutes. Finally, add a bit of soy sauce, and that’s it. You’re done!
