Pork Noodle Soup

My daughter created this soup when she needed to use up some leftover pork. You can use more water for a thinner soup or less water for a noodle dish. It’s good with mushroom flavored ramen noodles, too. —Eleanor Niska, Twin Falls, Idaho

    This was a very light tasting soup....not heavy at all. Loved all the fresh vegetables in it. I would add more cabbage next time and use chicken stock/broth instead of water for a richer flavor. We enjoyed this and will make it again. Thanks!

    I often use any leftover meat and veggies to make dinner much like this. You can use whatever you have on hand.

    I tried this to use up some forgotten frozen pork roast. This was delicious! I substituted most of a can of French-style green beans and added a little more cabbage. Otherwise I made it as the recipe was written. Picky hubby loved it so I will definitely make this again.

    I had leftover pork roast in the freezer, so I decided to make this soup. It's delicious. I made it just as the recipe is written--no changes. I'll definitely be making this again!
