This can be made with pork or chicken or even beef. It is so simple to prepare, and so soft on the tummy. The Chinese noodles in the recipe are not rice noodles or cellophane noodles, but more like a spaghetti noodle. You can use Soba noodles or thin spaghetti noodles. Also, I love the combination of beef and vegetable broths for a soup broth. I use the tempura sauce because it is like a lite combination of soy and teriyaki. I don't use Sesame oil in this soup because it overpowers. I love to make the rolled and shredded omelets in this that you find in Chinese cooking, such as Fried Rice and Noodle Soups. I have put the recipe and method for the omelets at the end--don't be worried, this is super easy to make!
