Soup is critical for making stewed noodles. The soup is made of mutton and lamb bones (broken with bone marrow exposed) and cooked for over 5 hours. First, use a high heat until the soup boils and then slow cook with a low heat. Add 7 or 8 traditional Chinese herbal medicines and cook the oil out of the bones. The cooked soup should be white and glittering like milk, thus it is also called white soup.
