Maki Mi

I found a copy of this recipe I got from the web some time ago. I can’t remember the source. If you’re the owner to this recipe, please leave me a comment and I’ll add proper acknowledgement to this post.

MAKI-MI(mami noodles and pork in starchy sauce)

4k LEAN PORK or KASIM pounded till flat then slice in bite size
1 – 2 tbsp soy sauce (I like coconut brand)
1 – 2 finely minced garlic
1-2 drops KNORR SEANSONING sauce
sesame oil (optional)
1/2 to 1 beaten egg plus 2 more beaten eggs to be used later at the end
1 – 2 tbsp sweet potato starch

Mix everything evenly then set aside

Second the BROTH:
4 – 6 cups broth ( use chicken powder but you can use either pork or chicken broth cube, 1 cube would do)
2 – 3 tbsp soy sauce or more if you want but beware of your local commercial soy sauce which are all salty and please don’t use kikoman.

Boil the broth then add the pork one by one
Let it boil till pork cooks.(this won’t take long coz the pounded meat will cook fast)

Mix together 4 – 6 tbsp sweet potato starch with 4 – 6 tbsp cold water ( always remember this when using starch on soup 1:1:1 meaning 1 tbsp starch to 1 tbsp water to 1 cup broth) if you wanted it really gooey add a couple more tbsp.
When soup boils after pork is cooked add this slowly and mix the broth vigorously then let it boil again till it becomes glossy and bubbles
LASTLY add to the soup:
salt and pepper TO TASTE
a pinch or two of sugar
Add the remaining beaten eggs and slowly pour the rest of the beaten egg like a stream while whisking the soup or if you want big chunks of egg, drop small amounts while whisking it.

mami noodles—clean this by soaking in boiled water for a while After washing put it in the bowl then add your soup.

Few years ago, this is the only recipe I can find on the web.  These are two newer recipes that showed up on google.


  1. Hi Wanda,
    I have found your foodie blog, which I really like it. I enjoyed to read your posts and recipes. Hopefully, you will continue it.
    I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing your posts and ideas on Glipho? It’s a quite new social publishing platform for bloggers like you.

  2. Hi!

    I tried your recipe today. And… was SO YUMMY!!!! I have been looking for a good maki recipe for so long and I’ve tried and failed so many times too. But your recipe was really great. Thank you for posting this recipe!:)))

  3. Did you actually try making this if so can you show a photo? Thanks

  4. Do you have on file the recipe of maya kitchen on makimi? I shall appreciate if you can send me a copy.

  5. I tried it today. It was okay. But I adjusted the ingredients because I eat alone. I wonder how many serving is your recipe? 4kg of pork seems to be a lot. I will be doing this for 3 persons next time. May I ask also why you do not prefer Kikkoman? I have a whole bottle at home.
