This is a great meal in itself, very filling and very healthy so there is room for seconds. I also serve with egg rolls on the side for dipping or added crunch. Once the prep is done, this recipe goes very fast from stove to table, usually no more than 10 minutes.

How to Make Yummy Thai Noodle Bowl.

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut cucumber into matchstick size and sprinkle and toss with salt, just enough to cover. You will serve this as topping for finished product. Adds so much freshness!
  2. Add oil to deep skillet or soup pot and heat. The vessel you use will contain the 4 servings of soup.
  3. Lightly and quickly saute pork, garlic,ginger, pepper, sriracha and five spice. Break up with spoon and brown and pork is cooked through. About 8 minutes
  4. Add chicken stock, soy sauce, fish sauce and 1 cup of water and bring to low simmer.
  5. At simmer, add the chard and scallions and stir until the chard(or any hearty green) is just wilted. Usually takes about 2 minutes once you get it all in. Don't worry, it wilts down very small.
  6. Microwave noodles in pack per instruction. Or if making your own, cook your udon or rice noodles now.
  7. Add drained noodles or microwave noodles to 4 bowls and ladle soup mixture over noodles. Top with crunchy cucumbers and a squeeze of lime wedge.
  8. This makes a mildly spicy soup bowl. Keep sriracha or hot sauce handy as others may find it too mild.
