I know, I know…strange title, right? I did not come up with it, but I thought it was funny. Supposedly the pieces of meat are meant to represent ants on a tree. I can’t quite see it, but I don’t really want to since it tastes good.
Still not seeing any ants. But maybe my meat pieces are just too big. I am more of a meatball kind of girl, after all.
The ingredients are typical Chinese flavors and there is some room for flexibility. For instance, you can use whatever noodles you like, as well as leave out the mirin or rice wine vinegar if you don’t have one or the other.
