Udon Noodle Soup with Pork Recipe

I call this udon noodle soup the “I-cook-the-hotpot-for-you” dish. This simple one-dish meal is something I love making whenever I need a quick and satisfying dinner with leftover hotpot ingredients. This recipe uses paper-thin pork slices (shabu shabu or sukiyaki) which cooks in seconds, though you can easily substitute this recipe with chicken thigh cubes or thinly sliced beef.

When cooked and served in a claypot (nabe) as shown, this dish is also known as nabeyaki udon (鍋焼きうどん), though you can use any casserole, pot and serving bowl.


Udon Noodle Soup Recipe

To get a springy udon (うどん) texture with a ‘bite’, do not overcook the udon noodles. I dish them out of the boiling water right after the noodles separates, drain them in a strainer and run tap water immediately over the noodles before serving.

    I am not kidding. I made similar hotpot-style noodle soup as well, regularly during winter the past few months. With the sliced pork, the soup was just light and flavorful 很清甜! And believe it or not, I had the same thought when I was drafting/writing my post about it – it is hotpot-style over the stove, same as “i cook the hotpot for you” style :p

      I have come to realise we both have very similar taste buds and cooking style :) …. though I am more on the “eat rubbish”, hahaha….

    Hi, love yr receipes!!! Where to buy udon? Ntuc ? Any brand that you reccomend?


    • wiffy replied: — November 23rd, 2015 @ 9:26 am

      NTUC home brand has a good springy texture, but it contains food stabilizers. Otherwise just get any brand with only 3 ingredients “flour, salt and water”.

    Hi, I tried this recipe and my kids enjoyed the broth. However, the udon I bought has a sour taste after cooking it. I bought “Fortune” brand. I would like to ask if udon has natural sour taste or is the brand of the udon? Thanks.

      No I don’t think it’s supposed to have a sour taste. I’ve not tried Fortune brand before. I usually use NTUC home brand as it has a nice bite.
