Filipino Pork & Noodle Soup

Total Time

From Sam the Cooking Guy (LOVE him!) He says, "You know how those little Jewish grandmothers are famous for their chicken soup? The little Filipino grandmothers are no different - except it's pork. Which I suppose is considerably different when comparing to a Jewish soup - but it's easily as good!"

This is amazing!!!!! I added a fresh jalapeno to the onion and garlic saute for a little heat. This was before I saw the 2 tsp pepper. I did 1 tsp pepper since I added the jalapeno. I will definitely make this again with the 2 tsp pepper because it gives such flavor to the dish!!! Thanks for a new favorite on Zaar!!! Loved it!!

Wonderful soup. I added 1/2 habenero pepper diced to the pork while cooking. I also added siricha sauce for some extra zip. Don't forget the lime and cilantro as this is really what makes this soup special.

This was delicious and easy. I was dubious about trying it, but wanted something different than the usual chicken soup for a cold. I am so glad I did try it. It is clean, fragrant, and tastes very good. Try it! You'll like it!
