Thai Pork Noodle Soup

Thai Pork Noodle Soup by car2ngrl

I saw this recipe in the Real Simple magazine that just hit my mailbox. I halved the recipe and made a few modifications based on what I had on hand but yes...in the end, this was real simple.

Even better, the kids loved it. (Without the jalapenos, of course.)


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 green onions -- whites (thinly sliced) separated from the green (roughly chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried lemon grass
  • 1/2 pound ground pork (or any other meat you may have on hand)
  • 1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
  • about a cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 cm bundle of angel hair pasta
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced thin (optional)
  • cilantro (optional)
2 servings


Heat oil in a medium saucepan.

Add scallion whites, garlic, ginger, & lemongrass and saute for about 30 seconds.

Add meat, about 1/4 teaspoon pepper & two pinches of salt and cook until done, breaking it up in the process.

Add chicken broth, half can of water, fish sauce, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil.

Add pasta and cook for 3 minutes.

Take off heat and squeeze in the juice of one lime wedge.

Serve with the onion greens, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime wedges.
