Ingredients
  

Broth

  • 2 cups pork broth
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp dried sardines
  • ½ tbsp wakame (optional)
  • 1 tbsp clam juice (optional)
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • tbsp bacon grease
  • salt

Toppings

  • 0.5 lbs pork belly (char siu, sliced)
  • 2 umeboshi (Japanese pickled plums)
  • 2 tbsp scallions (sliced)
  • 1 egg soft boiled
  • 2 tbsp menma (fermented bamboo shoots)

Noodles

  • 2 packages somen noodles

Instructions
 

  • Combine all broth ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer, not a boil. Simmer for at least 15 minutes. Wait to add salt until right before serving. Also, strain if you do not want to eat the sardines.
  • Prepare the toppings. Boil an egg for 6 minutes, slice the pork and scallions.
  • In a separate pot, bring water to a boil. Add noodles, boil for 3 minutes, or as specified on the package. Strain water out.
  • Divide broth between bowls, add noodles, arrange toppings. Enjoy!
