Quick and Delicious Pork Udon Noodles in 15 Minutes

The ingredients you need are udon noodles, pork and Japanese leek. This dish is what my late grandparents used to serve.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Udon noodles
2 portions (or 200 g dried)
Pork offcuts
150g
Green onion or scallion
to taste
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons or less
Sake
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Cut the pork into small pieces about 1 cm, heat a pot with a little water, and add the pork.
2. Add soy sauce and sake, then cook down the liquid. There's no need to skim off the scum on the surface. Meanwhile, chop the scallion.
3. Keep boiling until the liquid is gone.
4. Cook the udon noodles. Drain the water, and serve in a bowl.
5. Put the pork and a handful of scallion on top. Mix well as you eat.

Story Behind this Recipe

I thought this was my grandmother's recipe, but it was actually created by my grandfather, who wanted to recreate Zhajiangmian he had in Shanghai. But I don't know where the zhajingmian element plays in this dish..
