This simple and satisfying Asian noodle soup is great when you need a quick meal on a chilly night!
2 t peanut or canola oil
1/2 lb ground pork or your choice of ground meat
1/4 c finely chopped sour pickles or pickled mustard greens
3 T peanut butter
3 T soy sauce or fish sauce
3 T roasted sesame oil
3 T sugar
2 T rice vinegar
1 t red chile flakes or to taste
6 c chicken broth or 4 c chicken broth with 1 can of coconut milk
8 oz fettucine, rice noodles or pappardelle or rice noodles (Depending on your choice of noodles, they may need to be cooked first. I cooked the pappardelle al dente, before adding to soup.) If you have fresh noodles there is no need to cook first. Just add them to soup.
1 bunch scallions, finely chopped
1/4 c finely chopped roasted and salted peanuts
Toasted sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
In a 6 quart pot, add oil and ground meat. Stir over high heat until meat is crumbled and lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Mix pickles and peanut sauce with meat. Add broth and cover pot.
If using fresh noodles, add them now and cook for about 3 minutes until pasta is just tender.
Stir in scallions and serve! Top with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
