Japanese Tanmen Bacon Noodle Soup

This is the easiest noodle soup I’ve ever done… but don’t think the flavour suffers as a result! A quick and simple broth, taken to another level with smoky bacon, onions and crisp vegetables, and served with tender noodles. Delightful!

Ingredients

200g (7.5 oz) thinly sliced bacon

½ cup thin slices carrot

6 wombok (napa cabbage) leaves, cut into bite-sized pieces

5 pieces wood ear mushrooms, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces

¼ cup bean shoots

3 spring onions (scallions), cut into batons

2 tbsp sake (optional)

8 cups chicken stock

800g (1.7 lb) cooked noodles

Steps
  • Step 1

    Heat a large wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes or until just starting to colour. Add the carrot and stir-fry for half a minute. Then add the cabbage and mushrooms and stir-fry for another half a minute. Then add the bean shoots and spring onions and stir-fry for another minute or until the vegetables are tender but the carrot and cabbage still has some crunch. Add the sake. And then add the chicken stock. Simmer for 2 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse.

  • Step 2

    Divide noodles among serving bowls and ladle over the soup.
