This soup was surprisingly good. It had a very mild flavor and was exactly what I needed tonight.

2 packs of precooked udon noodles
150g shaved pork (しょうが焼き用肉)
4 Chinese Cabbage leaves

Cut the chinese cabbage leaves into 3-4cm squares. Add chinese cabbage, pork, water and sake to a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 10 minutes, skimming of any scum that forms on top. Add the udon noodles and simmer for another 5 minutes. Turn off heat, add sesame oil, salt and pepper. Serve.
