My husband and I are really loving the 400 Soups cookbook he got at the bookstore a few weeks ago! Here is another great soup that our whole family loved!
If anyone can tell me where to find Kaffir Lime Leaves, I would be very grateful! They are called for in the recipe but we couldn’t find them!

The recipe calls for making this in a wok (which we did) but I am sure any heavy stock pot would work too!
Pork and Noodle Broth with Shrimp
12 ounces raw pork (cubed)
8 ounces raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 ounces thin egg noodles (I found them in the regular pasta isle next to the other noodles)
1 TBSP vegetable oil
2 tsp sesame oil
1 medium onion (chopped)
2 TBSP fresh ginger (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp sugar
6 cups chicken broth (I use Better than Bouillon)
2 kaffir lime leaves (omitted…)
3 TBSP fish sauce
juice of 1/2 a lime
fresh cilantro (chopped) for garnish
2 green onions (green parts only, chopped) for garnish
1. Make sure that pork is cubed and shrimp is ready to go before starting
2. Cook egg noodles in salted, boiling water until almost done…check package directions. You will cook them again for a couple of minutes so don’t overcook them. Rinse under cool water and set aside.
3. Preheat the wok and add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and cook 3-4 minutes until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
4. To the wok, add the ginger, garlic, sugar, and stock and bring to a simmer. Add the keffir lime leaves if using, fish sauce, and lime juice.
5. Add the pork and simmer 15 minutes
6. Add the shrimp and the noodles and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until the shrimp is done. Add the onions back to the pan.
7. Serve in bowls garnished with scallions and cilantro.
Makes enough for 4 to 6 servings.
