Pork Miso Udon
  • 2 tablespoon miso paste
  • 2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves fresh, ground garlic
  • 7 ounce udon noodles
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 medium-sized onion, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 stalk bok choy, sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • one-half 15-ounce can sweet corn, drained
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • sesame seeds, for garnish
  • 3 scallions, chopped finely, for garnish
  • red pepper powder (optional)
  1. In a small bowl, mix the miso paste, soy sauce, cornstarch, and garlic. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized pot, boil 4 cups of water and cook the udon, following the package directions.
  3. Heat a medium-sized pot over medium heat, then add the sesame oil. Sauté the onion and the bok choy until they are slightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the pork and the corn, then keep sautéing until the pork is browned, about 4 minutes.
  4. In the same pot, add 2 ½ cups of water, then bring everything to boil, about 4 minutes.
  5. Remove the top layer of floating oils and bubbles from the pot, then add the miso mixture. Over medium-low heat, stir the soup lightly to ensure the miso mixture has dissolved. Add the butter, and stir.
  6. Serve the udon noodles in a bowl, and add the vegetable miso soup on top. Sprinkle the sesame seeds, scallions, and hot pepper over the soup, if using.
