Today we have a big bowl of noodles! These were found up in Canada for my birthday trip – last year. I must say that the shelf life of instant noodles is really quite amazing and helpful – especially when I review one every day. I’ve got quite a lot of instant noodles here, which should be no surprise! I remember in November of 2012 – I was in a bit of a panic. I did a bunch of re-reviews and had a real problem finding new varieties. Then boom – found tons and got a bunch sent to me. Anyways, let’s have a look at this big pork bowl!
The side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add sachet contents to bowl. Add boiling water to line and cover for 3-4 minutes. Uncover, stir and enjoy.
Detail of the lid.
An included fork!
The noodle block.
The powder soup base sachet.
You’re going to say ‘hey – this doesn’t look like powder!’ Well, over time, the powder can clump a bit – which really doesn’t hurt anything; there’s a little bit of moisture in the ingredients, and after a while, they tend to turn chunky.
The vegetables sachet.
A nice variety.
The liquid base sachet.
A thick paste.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, sauteed pork and sweet onion, and a little BonCabe Level 10 chilli seasoning. The noodles ended up being kind of spongy which was a big let down. The broth had a nice rich flavor and the veggies were quite good. Can’t get past the noodles though. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars. 6921555571668.
Here’s another one of the big bowls that Michelle L. of New York sent. Stew Pork eh? Let’s give this one a try.

Hooray! A fork!
Here’s the noodle block.
Yeah this one taste a whole lot better than the mushroom chicken one that smelled like burnt plastic!
They look pretty decent.
The liquid seasoning.
Looks funny I know but this really livens things up!
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a slice of processed cheese and some beef lunch meat. The noodles are a little on the weak side; they are good, but they could be better. The broth is lighter than I expected; I really expected salty but that wasn’t the case – nice stewed pork taste. The veggies were not all that great; they re-hydrated but weren’t awesome. All said and done, not bad but could be better. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 6921555571668 .
Uh but it said JM L Commercial 1 in the title… Just doesn’t seem right.
