Mie Keriting with Babi Sop. Pork noodle soup, simply put. It is copied from old post of chicken noodle soup, Indonesian style. But since Indonesia is a Muslim country, referring to the pork soup in Bahasa seems wrong, hence the English title of this post.
The thing is, I only made this pork because I had heaps of pork being boiled during this time, and didn’t want to bother adding another pot to the stove. I just took some of the meat that I would eventually use for sisis, and fried it a bit. I fried some tofu too. I prepared the noodles by boiling it and putting salt, pork fat (from the boiled pork) and sesame oil. For the soup, I boiled water with pork broth cube, salt, garlic and mushroom.
I then assembled all the ingredients on the plate. Noodles, fried pork bits, tofu, and corn on the bowl. And then, the soup was poured over it just before serving. I took the whole garlic and ate it, soft and sweet. 🙂
I really like these simple tasting dishes. Clean to the palette. Not really the easiest to make, but satisfies me every time.
