This hearty one-bowl-meal from Chef Erik Bruner-Yang is like a cross between soup, noodles, and porridge. It starts with a savory sweet stock made with pork shoulder, slowly simmered with apple, ginger, onion, cloves, and Kikkoman® Gluten-Free Tamari Sauce. In that umami-rich stock, Bruner-Yang cooks thick Vietnamese banh canh rice noodles until they’re the consistency of porridge, then serves them with house-made spicy Mala Oil and a signature Mustard Chili Crisp. It’s a crowd-pleasing item that’s packed with flavor, texture, spice, and color—and it’s gluten-free.
Born in Taiwan and raised in the States, Erik Bruner-Yang is a three-time James Beard Foundation award nominee and chef-owner of Maketto in Washington, DC.
