What is Tom Yum?

“Tom” means boil and “Yum” in Thai is sour and spicy salad. You may be familiar with Tom Yum Goong. It is one of the most iconic soup from Thailand for bold and flavorful flavor.

How to make the noodle version?

Simply fried garlic to make it crispy and for the aromatic oil or use the store bought fried garlic. Set it aside then add water or stock. I tried it both ways and both taste great. However, I prefer to utilize the stock that I get from my instant pot Asian ribs such as Leng Saeb. But again, you can just use water. Cook the rice noodles for 3 -5 seconds. If using the dried rice noodle, make sure to rehydrate with room temperature water for about 5 minutes before cooking. Set it aside in the bowl and coat with garlic oil. Add ground pork to cook, season, pour on to the noodle and garnish with toppings of your choice. That’s it!
