Among the many many types of broth, there is for a noodle soup, my favorite has always been miso-based. It’s not too salty, not too strong, light, and just a little hint of sweetness. Here is an easy and simple recipe. You can use any miso paste of your choice.
- 2 Package of Udon noodle
- 2 Tbs Miso paste
- 1 Tbs Sake
- 300ml Water
- 1 Tbs Dashi
- 1 1/2 Mentsuyu
- Komatsuna (Japanese spinach)
- Pork Cut into thin slices
- Set stove on Medium head. In a pan, lightly fry the miso paste for a couple of seconds, until it becomes slightly burnt or fragranced.
- Add in the water, dashi, sake, and mentsuyu. Stir until the miso paste is all dissolved or broken apart. Then set it aside.
- In a separate pan. Boil the komatsuna, then drain and cut them into your preferred length. Set it aside.
- Repeat the same process with the pork. Cook, drain, and set aside.
- For the udon noodle, cook according to the package. Transfer the noodle into a bowl.
- Pour in some of the broth made earlier. Add some komatsuna on top, and some pork slices. DONE!
