Pork, veg and green tea Broth

Updated: Apr 6, 2022

Drinking tea daily has been associated with lowered cholesterol and blood pressure levels, it’s also good for staying hydrated. Green Tea has antibacterial properties too.

Serves 2

Ingredients

2 pints boiling water

3 Green Tea – tea bags

1 vegetable stock cube

2 portions of pork (bone removed)

1 inch piece of peeled fresh ginger, julienned

100g chestnut mushrooms, sliced

100g baby sweet corn, halved

100g broccoli (or tenderstem) cut into small florets

1 garlic clove, crushed

2 spring onions, sliced (use the green parts too)

30ml rice wine

Green chilli , sliced (used half of a fresh jalapeno)

1 tsp black sesame seeds

150g noodles (your choice, I used Soba noodles)

Boil the water, put your tea bags into your tea pot (or large bowl) then cover with the boiling water and leave to brew for about 10 minutes

Get a large pan and pour  the tea in (remember to remove the tea bags) and bring it back to a simmer. Now add the pork. Wait 5 minutes before adding the stock cube, ginger, mushrooms,  sweet corn, broccoli  and garlic. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the pork is cooked . Take off the heat. Remove the pork and slice.

In a separate pan, cook the noodles (follow instructions on the packet) Mine took about 5 minutes. So timing wise, you need to put it on as soon as you add the pork to the water. Once cooked, drain.

Take the remaining ingredients and mix together in a different bowl (Spring onions, chilli, rice wine and sesame seeds).

Pour the noodles into your serving bowls, then add the pork and pour in the green tea broth and veg. then add the remaining ingredients.

Variation:

Any meat would work with this: Beef, Chicken, Lamb, Turkey.

You could also use different veg: red onions, carrots, green beans, celery, whatever you have available
