Lamb Soba Noodles Soup




Yes, you read it right, lamb soba noodle soup. The Husband cooked it for me when I wasn't feeling well last week.  It is supposed to be a beef soba noodle soup but the Husband used all the sirloin beef in his beef tapa.  So, the next best thing is use lamb as that is what we have on stock.  No to chicken this time as I am growing feathers and beaks already! 

Anyway, the spices used by the husband were able to mask the gamy taste of the lamb but there's still the "lamb-after-taste" if you know what I mean.  The husband liked this dish with rice, he set aside the soba noodles and went for the rice instead.  As a noodle dish, it was ok.  I ate the soba noodles, snow peas, and soup only and of course I still can taste the gamy flavor of the lamb.

For those people who loves to eat lamb and loves the gamy flavor it offers, and for those who wants a dish that is something different, this dish is for you.  

For me?  I would have beef next time with the soba noodles (evil grin)
