Feeding the Frat: Noodle Bowls

So I decided to try my hand at a "Ramen" bowl. But, since I didn't have any ramen noodles on hand, I substituted with glass noodles. 

Bowl composition: 
Ground pork - pan fried with ginger and garlic 
Slivered Fresno Peppers
Soft boiled eggs 
Glass Noodles in a  Curry Coconut Sauce
(Optional) Cilantro 

Ground Pork: 

Pan fry the ground pork (2.5 lbs) with 1 teaspoon of garlic, and 1 teaspoon of ginger, in 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil. 
Add 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.
Add 1 handful of cut scallions.
Add Salt and Pepper to taste. 

Glass Noodles: 

Boil salted water. 
When water reaches a boil, add your glass noodles. 
Cook for 5-6 minutes. 
Remove noodles and place in an ice bath immediately to stop them from continuing to cook. 

Curry Coconut Sauce: 

Take 1 1/2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil. 
Add 1 teaspoon of ginger, 1 teaspoon of garlic and 1 cut small onion, cook over low heat until the onions caramelize. 
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
Add Beef Broth (2x 32 oz. boxes).
Add 3 teaspoons of curry powder.
Add one can of coconut milk.
Bring to a low boil and allow to cook at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to plate your noodle bowl. 

The boys liked the bowls and as with most successful sibling evenings, dinner ended with sports, relaxation and a lot of laughter.
