Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1/3 cup ketchup or 3 tablespoons tomato paste and a pinch of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar, plus more to taste
  • A few drops dark sesame oil, optional
  • A squirt sriracha or other sauce, or a dried red chile, to taste, optional
  • 1 pound egg noodles, preferably fresh

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it. In a smaller pot, bring 6 cups of water to a boil; once boiling, reduce heat so water bubbles gently. To the smaller pot add soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, sesame oil, if using, and sriracha or chile, along with a pinch of salt. Stir and let simmer. Add egg noodles to large pot. Cook's Note: Fresh noodles will be ready in just a couple of minutes; dried will take longer. When tender, but not mushy, drain. Taste broth and add more soy, salt, vinegar, or heat as you like. Divide the noodles into bowls and pour hot broth over all.
