Easy Minced Meat Braised Udon 简易肉碎焖乌东

* in collaboration with Fortune Food Manufacturing 鸿运 for Japanese Udon

I am still fighting my 2nd time cancer. And still having my chemotherapy treatments. Nowadays, I can only cook simple/easy dishes as I am unable to stand too long in the kitchen due to my extremely low blood count. However, that doesn't mean that I can compromise on my cooking as I need to eat and eat well for recovery! This Easy Minced Meat Braised Udon 简易肉碎焖乌东 is a very easy one pot dish. And very palatable! The Fortune Japanese Udon not only has a very springy texture that I like, but also soaked up the sauce extremely well!
