  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root (using a Microplane fine grater)
  • 3 cloves grated garlic

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until tender according to package directions. Drain.

I served some marinated pork chops on top of the noodles. The marinade is from, and goes like this:
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

  1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, water, onion powder, and ground ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the mixture from heat, cool, and whisk in lemon juice and hot chile paste. Place chicken in the mixture. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 4 hours before preparing chicken as desired.
