Sam the Cooking Guy: Just a Bunch of Recipes

You know how Jewish grandmothers are famous for their soup? The Filipino grandmothers are no different—except they use pork instead of chicken.
• 1/2 pound ground pork
• 1/2 large yellow onion, diced
• 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 cups chicken broth
• 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
• 1/4 pound uncooked angel hair pasta
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 2 large eggs, scrambled
• 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
• 1 lime, cut into wedges
In a large pot, cook the pork with the onion and garlic in the oil over medium heat, stirring, until it's fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
Add the broth and pepper and bring to a boil.
Add the pasta and when it's ready about 7 minutes, reduce the heat to a simmer.
Add the soy sauce and scrambled eggs.
Allow to thicken slightly and serve.
The cilantro and lime wedges served on the side totally make it so that means don't ignore them!
