    K9 Owned's Note:

    I am a fan of noodle bowls. They are cheap, easy, use up scraps and you can be eating in 5 minutes. Not gourmet by a long stretch but they lend themselves to so many variations - only a few of which are mentioned here. Check out your fridge and pantry and let your imagination and personal taste take over. It is an excellent use for 1/2 a pork chop for example.The ingredients list may seem long but you only need to select a few. It seems strange even writing 'optional' as most of it is! Have fun with it! Note: The nutitional data is all out of whack. You would have to use all the protein options plus the egg and still wouldn't get past 40 gr of fat. I wouldn't recommend 12oz of meat/shrimp in one noodle bowl: :)

      If I could give it 10 stars I would.
      My variation using your method~2 cups chicken broth, 2 cups chicken stock, 2 T. tamari, 1 T. minced garlic, 1 t finely grated ginger, 1 t red chili pepper flakes, 1 t rooster sauce, 1/4 t dark sesame oil, 1/2 a cooked pork butt steak sliced uber thin, 5 mushrooms sliced thin, 1 small red pepper slivered, cut chives for garnish and believe it or not, 2 cups cooked spatzel which worked out to be a fantastic choice. Will I make this again? Keith asked if we had all the ingredients to make it for lunch tomorrow, so yes I will. Again and again and ... Thank you for posting this recipe!

      This was a great lunch today, especially since I was freezing my fanny off after walking the dog! I used leftover chicken, shredded carrots, broccoli and onions. It is a great recipe for cleaning up little bits of leftovers and comes together very fast. Will definitely make again. I think I could get two servings out of this as I was so stuffed afterwards. Thanks for the recipe K9, will make it again for sure!
