Ingredients

  • ½ a packet of thin rice stick noodles (rice vermicelli)
  • 500g Chinese barbecued pork
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1½-2 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 red capsicum, deseeded and finely sliced
  • ¼ Chinese cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • coriander for garnish
  •  

Method

Place noodles in a large, heatproof bowl. Pour over boiling water to cover and soak for 5 minutes, gently stirring to break up any clumps. Drain the noodles in a colander and rinse.

Cut the barbecued pork into thin slices.

In a small bowl, mix the chicken stock, soy sauce and brown sugar. Set aside.

Heat a large wok over high heat. Add the oil and when it is hot, add the curry powder, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry briefly until fragrant. Add the onion and capsicum and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until it begins to soften, then add the cabbage and stir-fry for about 2 minutes.

Stir in the bean sprouts, cook briefly, and then add the pork and the noodles. Add the sauce, tossing the ingredients carefully to mix. If too dry, add a bit more chicken stock or water as needed.

Add salt and black pepper to taste, and more curry powder, soy sauce or sugar if desired.

Make a simple omelet by whisking the eggs with 2 tablespoons of water and cooking in a small non-stick pan. When cooked, remove from pan and roll up. Slice thinly and scatter over the noodles. Garnish with coriander and serve.

    Pretty good. I made a few changes, because I can't leave anything alone. Instead of Chinese BBQ pork, I just roasted some pork rashers sprinkled with Chinese five spice. I added 2 tbsp of Shao Xing to the sauce and I added peas and sliced spring onions when I added the pork and noodles. Also, I made the omelette first in the wok with some oil and put is aside until ready to add, to save on washing up.
