Thai Pork and Noodle Soup

If you want a “clean” soup and what I mean by clean, it is light on the palette and smooth going down. Also, easy on the budget. Serve this Thai dish with a nice hard bread. Perfect!

Thai Pork and Noodle Soup

Serves 4

Thai Pork and Noodle Soup 2

2 Tablespoons canola or olive oil

2 green onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh ginger

1/2# ground pork

1/2# mushrooms (any kind)

4 cups chicken broth regular or low sodium

1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce or Soy Sauce

4 ozs of wonton wrappers sliced into 1/2 inch strips or I used lasagna noodles

2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice and lime slices for serving

cilantro leaves optional and red chile peppers or red pepper flakes, also optional

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the green onions, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the pork and cook, breaking it up with a spoon or a chopstick, until browned and cooked through 6-8 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 2-3 minutes more.

Add the broth, fish sauce and 2 cups water to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the wonton wrappers or noodles, reduce heat and simmer until tender. Stir in the lime juice. Serve with lime slices, chili peppers, and cilantro.
