250g dried egg noodles

1 tablespoon flavourless oil

500g minced pork

1 red onion, roughly diced

1-2 long red chillies (to taste, increase number for more heat), finely sliced

3 tablespoons ketjap manis

250ml coconut milk

1/2 cup roasted and salted peanuts

juice from 1 lime (plus extra lime wedges to serve)

1 tablespoon sesame oil

fresh coriander leaves, torn, to serve


Cook the egg noodles in boiling water according to the packet directions. Drain and set aside.

Heat a wok on high heat, add the oil and the pork. Cook for about 5-7 minutes then add the diced onions. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes to soften the onion.

Add the chilli, satay paste, fish sauce, ketjap manis, coconut milk and peanuts. Bring to the boil and cook for about 2 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Add the noodles to the wok along with the lime juice and sesame oil.

Serve in bowls with fresh torn coriander and some extra lime wedges.
