Stir Fried Pork with Noodles

 An alternative to salad and perfect for those days when the temperature makes you want to get in and out of the kitchen with minimal cooking time. This is a quick dinner dish, the preparation can be done in advance and noodles boiled as the stir fry is being cooked. This is a concept dish and basic, add more garlic, chilli or ginger and some oyster sauce or sweet chilli for extra flavour. Although I have used pork it is just as good with beef, chicken, prawns or tofu substituted for the pork.

How To

Cook the onion

Then the pork

Combine the onion, pork, cooked noodles and blanched broccoli

Toss ingredients together over low heat

Stir Fried Pork with Noodles
500 g thinly sliced pork (or substitute beef, chicken, prawns or tofu)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small knob of green ginger grated
oil for stir frying.

1 red onion, sliced thickly
250 g green beans or 1-2 bunches broccolini
sliced and blanched/ cooked in microwave for 1 minute

1 mild large chilli or capsicum, thinly sliced/julienned (optional)

1/4 cup stock, water or sherry (optional)
1-2 teaspoons sesame oil

Cooked noodles of choice (drained and hot)

Combine pork, garlic, ginger, soy in a bowl and marinate. If possible refrigerate it overnight.

Heat pan/wok until very hot, add a little oil and then add onions. Toss/stir for a minute or two until starting to brown and nearly cooked. Remove to a clean plate or bowl.

Heat pan/wok again until very hot, add a little oil and then add marinated pork. Toss/stir for a minute or two until pork is brown and cooked. Return onion to the pan,

Combine the broccolini, cooked noodles and capsicum/chilli (if using) to the pork and onions and toss gently to mix. 

Add stock and sesame oil and  bring to boil. Check flavour, add a little soy sauce if needed.
