Cookpad – Make everyday cooking fun! Mike's New Orleans Old Sober Or Yakamein Soup recipe – One of the Crescent City's time-honored traditions – a steaming bowl of Yak-a-mein Soup, a.k.a., "Old Sober"—after a night of partying in the French Quarter actually does have a basis in scientific fact. That was the word today from an overview of the chemistry of hangovers.

Mike's Traditional Old Sober Soup step by step

  1. ● Chop beef chuck or prime rib into 1" bite sized cubes [trim any fat] and chop your chives. ● I typically use my leftover prime rib and any leftover Au Jus from holiday meals. [look for my Mike's EZ Prime Rib recipe] ● So, know there will be additional herbs and spices in this prime rib version. It will also take less time to cook until meat is melt in your mouth tender. ● If you have any leftover prime rib bones, throw those in your pot as well. There's a lot of fat and flavor in those suckers!
  2. ● Place all ingredients – except for 1 of your 4 boxes of broth, your noodles and anything listed as sides/garnishments – in a large pot. ● Simmer covered for 2 hours or, until meat is melt in your mouth tender, if using raw chuck. ● After 2 hours, I'll add some additional crispy chive ends for soup body and texture..
  3. ● Boil your eggs. Using older eggs [they're much easier to peel] bring your eggs and water to a rapid boil. ● Once at a full boil, turn off heat and allow eggs to sit with lid on for 18 minutes..
  4. Arrest the cooking process by placing your eggs in an ice bath immediately..
  5. ● In a seperate pot, bring 1/2 of your broth and water as needed, 1 tsp salt and a small splash of oil to a boil. ● Place noodles in your simmering pot and boil al dente [important step as you'll be simmering your noodles again for 2 minutes in your original broth] – as per manufactures directions. ● Usually about 9 to 10 minutes..
  6. Drain your noodles. Do not rinse..
  7. ● Taste test your broth at this point and see if you'd like to add additional hot sauce, pepper, garlic, soy sauce or Cajun Seasoning. ● Immediately add noodles to your original beef pot for 2 minutes on a heavy boil to absorb your fullest broth flavors. ● Serve in styrofoam cups [if on the go] with sliced eggs, fresh chives and a splash of each garnishment listed, if desired..
  8. For the record, let it be said that I don't quite get the Ketchup garnishment part of this recipe but, to each his own!.
  9. Old Sober with Udon Noodles. Enjoy!.
