Braised Cellophane Noodles
Not an inspiring name, I know, but try it and you'll see I'm onto something. This dish has a thousand possible variations, and it's a great way to use up mismatched vegetables from your garden. We have been making it with calcium broth and the whole family seems to like it.
It's been hard to post this because every time I make it I vary the ingredients, but then I realized that was the beauty of it. Apart from the ingredients you see below, I have also made this with tofu, dried salted shrimp, bamboo shoots, carrots, onion... Pretty much anything that needed to be eaten. I have also made this with dashi instead of chicken or beef stock, and I've seasoned it with equal parts soy sauce and sugar and left out the ten spice powder and sesame oil.
2 boneless pork chops cut into bite-size pieces
assorted vegetables cut into bite-size pieces
2-4 cups broth
2 bundles cellophane noodles
Chinese Five Spice or (even better!) Ten Spice
