Why I Love This Recipe

When we don't feel good the first thing we do is make a pot of saimin. I still remember when my wife and I attended a travel convention at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, and I had a cold, but thank goodness on their room service menu they offered saimin. By late afternoon I was feeling much better. Of course you don't have to wait to get a cold before you eat saimin.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 cups chicken broth
1 pound fresh saimin noodles*
1 bunch green onions, finely sliced
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon sesame oil
½ pound Char Sui* (Chinese roasted pork), sliced thinly
8 ounces kamboko* (Japanese fish cake), sliced thinly
2 to 3 baby bok choi, roughly sliced
1 inch ginger root, minced
salt & pepper to taste

*These ingredients can be found in the Oriental section of your supermarket and in your local Asian food markets.

Add the char sui, kamboko and bok choi. Remove from heat.
