As stated, you’ll have some pork leftover. Depending on how you’re feeling about another Asian dinner with similar toppings, you might want to take a night off in between the two. Or make some shredded pork tacos or something. We love this recipe though for its simplicity. here’s what you’ll need, a lot of which we already had from the night before
- Shitake Mushrooms
- Toasted Sesame Oil
- Chicken Stock (carton and a half – depending on how much you’re making)
- Glass Noodles or Rice Noodles
- Poblano or Anaheim (we had leftover peppers)
- Green Onion
- Drunk Roommates
Since your pork is already shredded we can move right to the soup. Heat up the chicken broth and begin chopping up the vegetables. Add the shitakes, peppers garlic and ginger. Add a couple splashes of toasted sesame (do this again into your individual bowls)
Let the vegetables cook in a the broth. Maybe 15 minutes or so until the shitakes and peppers are to a desired texture. We like a little crunch still to the peppers and we don’t let the shitakes get too soggy. Nobody likes a soggy shitake. Give the soup some love by stirring it and letting the flavors meld. Depending on the noodles you use, we like to cook them for half the amount of time required, so they are crunchy still, then when your soup is done add them to your bowl and let them cook in the bowl before eating. That way you don’t have soggy noodles tomorrow with leftovers. We are just hating on soggy. Who doesn’t though, it’s ok. While searching for someone who hates sogginess as much as me I stumbled upon the D.O. double G cooking some mashed potatoes with Martha Stewart. Awesome.
So now that we watched Snoop peel the skiz-ins off those potatoes and rag on white pepper, we are ready to add the noodles, radishes, cilantro, green onions and I think that’s it. You are done. Dinner in about 30 minutes. Put the rest of the leftovers into a tupperware so as to preserve the sou…….WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!??
Oh yeah, while drinking with your roommates things got a little out of hand and someone went rummaging in the fridge knocking your leftovers all over the kitchen without cleaning it up. Sweet.
