Ingredients and Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Place the noodle bundle in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let it sit and soften for 15 minutes. Then drain well and cut the noodles into 1-inch pieces.

  3. For the wood ear mushrooms, place the mushrooms in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit and soften for 15 minutes. Then drain and slice into thin strips.

  4. In a large bowl, add 5 large eggs, fish sauce, sugar, salt, black + white pepper, chicken bouillon powder, and sesame oil. Mix well to combine then add pork, carrots, mushrooms and noodles. Stir until pork is blended with other ingredients.

  5. Put a piece of parchment paper in a loaf pan and pour the meat and egg mixture into the pan. Use a spoon to smooth out the top so that the surface is even. Place the loaf pan in a larger baking pan and fill the bottom with boiling water. Cover all of it with foil and bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes.

  6. Take the meatloaf out of the oven and uncover. Mix together the 3 egg yolks and pour over the meatloaf and brush evenly. Place it back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until eggs set. Slice and enjoy!

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
