Pork & Bok Choy Udon Soup
While traveling in Thailand, my husband ate a local version of this tasty soup for only fifty cents a bowl purchased from street vendors. We have tried many versions, and this recipe comes the closest to his recollection. We double this recipe so we have lots of leftovers.—Donna Noecker, Plano, Texas
