#1188: Chencun Noodles Braised Pork Ribs

Here’s another from the trip to Canada my wife took me on for my birthday – thank you, Kit! Pork. Ribs. Let’s do this.

Detail from the lid (click image to enlarge).

Distributor’s sticks (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat-free but check for yourself.

Upon opening, one is greeted by a fork!

Rice noodles.

The powder soup base sachet.

Powder with small bits of vegetables.

Sauce sachet.

Looks odd but smells good!

Finished (click on image to enlarge). Added pork and sweet onion sauteed with a little soy sauce and green onions. The noodles are thin and rounded. They have a nice chew and with the little bit of potato starch added, a little more filling than many. Unfortunately, even with a good stir during the steeping, there were some spots where the noodles weren’t done enough. The broth has a nice pork flavor with that little sweet, salty and meaty coagulation with oil. It all works together nicely. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 6911754103838.
