Pork Balls Soba Noodle



When my husband was away for a business trip, I cooked something easy for lunch. I had minced some pork and decided to make pork balls with it. Then, I just boiled the soba noodle until cooked and set aside. Boiled another pot of water to make the soup for this noodle. When the water was boiling, added the marinated pork balls, boiled until the pork balls were cooked. Added in the bok choy and seasonings for the soup such as soy sauce, sesame oil, chicken stock granules, salt and a little dark soy sauce. I added some cripy fried shallots too.



Served the noodle in a bowl, added in the soup with pork balls and bok choy. Later cut some Japanese seaweed (for sushi roll) and place it on top of the soup. It was special with the added seaweed as it brought another flavor into the noodle. Easy to prepare and nutritious too! I ate mine with spicy chili in oil with soy sauce as a dipping sauce, shiok lah!



Now, I would love to share this dish with Presto Pasta Night, an event created by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week host is Amy of Very Culinary , do go and check out her round up on Friday!



And I am also submitting my recipe to the Original Recipe event hosted by Lore at Culinarty. Check out others' recipes around the week of 15th.

Hi,

Just wondering...is chicken stock granules acting like MSG? Some recipes call for this ingredient and I don't know if it's like MSG. I am afraid to serve it to my kids but I was told that most foods in chinese restaurant require chicken stock granules. Is that true?

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Anon,
Actually all food in Chinese restaurants use MSG (CSG is more expensive), unless stated otherwise. Chicken stock granules contains some MSG unless it's said MSG free. You can look for chicken stock granules that do not have MSG added or ikan bilis granules that is MSG free for household use.
