Serve with 1 cup steamed veggies.
1 lb (450 g) lean ground pork
1 pkg (14 g/1⁄2 oz) dried shiitake mushrooms
1 cup water
2 pkgs (200 g/7 oz each) fresh Udon noodles
4 green onions
Toppings (optional): steamed baby bok choy, hard-boiled egg
- Place pork in Round Steamer. Cover and microwave on high for 4 min.
- Using Ground Meat Separator, break cooked pork into pieces. Stir in seasoning, mushrooms, chicken broth, water, and noodles. Microwave uncovered for 10 min or until mushrooms have rehydrated.
- Meanwhile, chop green onions. When soup is cooked, stir in green onions. Divide into 4 bowls and add toppings, if desired.
Dried mushrooms pack big flavour and there’s no chopping required! Recipe also works well with fresh mushrooms. Sauté 4 cups of sliced mushrooms, your choice, then add to steamer with beef.
