My husband and I really like this. I used 2 - 1 lb. pieces of pork roast, cooked in the crock pot for about 6 hours, and then used two forks to shred. You can buy edamame shelled in grocery freezer sections. Omitted the water chestnuts and ramen noodles. Also, we thought it was better after the first day.
I made this soup for New Year's Day and we loved it. My husband said it was the best soup he's ever had! I used boneless pork chops and I think I will cut them into 1/2" cubes instead of 1" cubes next time. And yes, definitely shell your edamame before adding it. Also, I skipped a step; I didn't brown the pork before adding to the slow cooker and it turned out just fine. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting!
Very good soup. The broth is really nice. A little kick to it. The ginger really brightens it up. Made for Bargain Basement Use It or Lose It tag.
really loved the flavor of this. only thing i would recommend is if you can only get the edamame in the husk, take it out of the husk before you cook, if not then you will spend a lot of time removing the husk after its cooked.
