One thing is certain, when you make this easy pork soup you will not be slaving in the kitchen all day! I used the leftover pork from my Chinese Five Spice Pork Tenderloin recipe to flavor the dish and provide the protein. Just make the broth, add in your veggies (shiitake and oyster mushrooms, garlic, carrots, and onions) and the flavorings. Layer it with yummy soba noodles and top it off with the pork and a soft-boiled egg. It’s even better tasting the next day! So, so good! Really healthy Asian noodle soup, no lie!
Soba noodles soak up the amazing flavors of this soup!
