  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 lb lean ground pork
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce or 1 tsp salt
  • 6 cups chicken broth (I used homemade broth, see notes below for recipe)
  • 2 oz misua noodles or Japanese somen noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped green onion for garnish


  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion; sauté for 2-3 minutes or until onion has softened.
  • Add ground pork and sauté for 3 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Add fish sauce (or salt) and stir to combine.
  • Add broth and bring to a boil. Stir in misua and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnish with green onions.


For homemade broth: In a pot, combine 10 cups water, rotisserie chicken bones, chopped onions, salt, ground pepper and dried parsley. Add any vegetables (carrot, celery) you like; I added Chinese or napa cabbage. Boil and let simmer for 30 minutes. Drain and use as broth.
