Enjoyed the world over, this Japanese staple is savory, satisfying and delicious.  Balanced with plenty of protein and vegetable goodness this recipe ticks every flavor box out there.  The sweet/saltiness of the soy sauce and the aromatic garlic and onion create a harmonious backdrop for the toothsome noodles and out-of-this-world pork.

After 30 minutes, remove eggs from broth. Allow to cool and then peel.
Remove onion half and discard. Skim off any fat. Then break apart pork with two forks, but don't over shred you want to keep it nice and chunky.
Ladle broth and meat over noodles. Serve with eggs cut in half and thinly sliced green onions.
