While traveling in Thailand, my husband sampled a local version of this tasty soup from street vendors. We have tried many variations, and this comes the closest to his recollection. We double the recipe so we have lots of leftovers. —Donna Noecker, Plano, Texas

  • 6 ounces dried Japanese udon noodles or fettuccine
  • 1 small bunch bok choy, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Optional: Thinly sliced green onions and Sriracha chili sauce


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and rinse with water. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine bok choy, pork, broth, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; bring just to a boil. Reduce heat; gently simmer, uncovered, 5-7 minutes or just until bok choy and pork are tender.
  2. Add noodles to soup. Serve immediately. If desired, sprinkle with green onions and serve with chili sauce.
