This is an example of a stir-fried poached soup. The pork is stir-fried in oil with seasonings to acquire a deeper flavor with the spicy Szechuan preserved mustard stems. Then water is poured in to make a broth before the transparent noodles are added for a very brief simmering. Seasoned with sesame oil, black pepper, and minced coriander, it’s a refreshingly spicy soup that takes no time at all to make.
