Szechuan Hotpot Style Udon Noodle Soup



Hello again, my dear readers...! I am still alive and kicking despite of not being active virtually for one whole week :). In fact I feel very well and rather excited because I am officially on a long summer vacation now :D).

I thought about making a bento lunch today, but I finally decided to make a 'normal' meal which wouldn't take so much time to make, since I still had to do a lot of packing.

This soup tastes quite similar to my Szechuan Noodles with Wontons and Meatballs, but this udon noodles soup has got more toppings and looks indeed prettier ;).

Ingredients
- serves 2
  • 400 g Udon noodles
  • 250 g ground pork
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tbs fish sauce
  • 3 tbs 'Fried pork with chili in oil'
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • Dashi powder to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 800 ml water
  • Chopped green onions
  • Topping suggestions: store-bought meatballs, fish balls, shiu mai, chikuwa (fish cake), shrimps, you tiao (Chinese bread stick), boiled egg, mushrooms and sugar snap peas.
Instructions
  • Heat 1 tbs oil in a wok.
  • Toss in the ground pork and chopped onion and stir fry until slightly brown.
  • Add fish sauce, 'fried pork with chili in oil', oyster sauce and pepper.
  • Simmer the meat sauce, stirring occasionally until cooked through.
  • Add 800 ml water and dashi powder to taste.
  • Add udon noodles and the toppings (except the you tiao) and cook for a few minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions and you tiao slices.



Happy Cooking :)!

  3. That looks amazing. Yes, Jakarta's web access is not the best. I was there last year and was only able to do minimal web surfing. Skyping and video chat was impossible. But the food sure made up for it. Have a safe and fabulous trip!

  10. Oh wow, so beautiful - I just came over from withaglass.com. I've been meaning to try more asian-style noodle dishes for a long time. Dashi is pretty important it seems so I think I'll go and pick some up this weekend, then I'll be trying this out. I don't think it's going to be as beautiful as this though!

  42. Hi CG! So glad to see you back again! :D
    I bought a bottle of 'fried pork with chilli in oil' after reading your post on mapo tofu but I haven't try yet.. :P
    Your Szechuan udon noodle soup looks so yummy! I'm gonna try this soon! I've got almost all the ingredients needed on hand now! :D
    Maybe I'll omit the 'fried pork with chilli in oil' bcos my girls don't take spicy food.
    Hope you have an enjoyable vacation! Are you really stopping by in Singapore for few days? Hope we'll have the time to meet up! :D
