Mein Sin or mee sua in chicken soup

Everyone in my family love noodles. The are so many different type of Chinese noodles. Mein sin is just one of them. Most Chinese mothers cook mein sin with chicken soup when a loved one is not well. We have mein sin available in our pantry all the time because it is so handy and easy to make. On days that we wanted something light and simple for lunch, we just have a bowl of mein sin in chicken soup and we are very happy. However, there is another elaborate way of cooking mein sin. Mein sin with chicken in Chinese red wine! If I can convince my neighbor to share her recipe with me, I will get it posted here soon. Her recipe is out of this world! For now., let me share the simpler version below. Thisis truly "comfort" food.

Serving : 1
10 thinly sliced pork
50 gm mein sin
3 fish balls
5 leafs of lettuce
½ ts garlic
1 tb vegetable oil
1 ts soy sauce
¼ ts ground white pepper
½ ts corn starch
1 cube bullion chicken stock, mashed
2 cups water
1 or 2 drops of sesame oil
Marinate sliced pork with soy sauce, ground white pepper and corn starch. Set aside. Heat oil in wok and fry garlic till fragrant, add sliced pork and stir fry till pork turn whitish. Add water, mashed bullion chicken stock and bring to boil. Add fish balls, lettuce and mein sin. Cook till mein sin is slightly limp and turn color. Add sesame oil and serve hot.
