I came across some fresh "jewel wide noodles" being sold at T&T the other day and my first thought was Taiwanese beef noodle soup.
I absolutely love thick, chewy noodles in my beef noodle soup.
Our version of Taiwanese beef noodle soup would have to wait, though, as we can't seem to get ourselves "mentally prepared" to make it. So, I re-purposed these noodles for another "taste of Formosa" application.
I cooked my old go-to dish of Taiwanese stewed ground pork sauce and stewed some eggs as well.

Of course, this dish wouldn't be complete without suan cai (pickled mustard greens) added into the mix.
We made pickled mustard greens before (for our Pig Trotter and Suan Cai Soup), but we wanted a version that's more similar to the pickled greens we have at Taiwanese establishments. So, to make this batch, we used not only vinegar, salt and water, but sugar as well.
We blanched/cooked the noodles, tossed them with the stewed minced pork and ate them with suan cai and stewed eggs.
