When it comes to cooking, you don’t always have to make everything according to the book. For example: this absolutely delicious and appetizing sweet and sour pork noodles. Who says that sweet and sour pork can only be prepared as an entree and serve with steamed rice only. And certainly, noodle doesn’t have to be the same old chow mein. Take two of the most popular Chinese recipes and combine them together means that you have the best of both worlds, in one dish! The taste is easy on the palate, the presentation utterly toothsome, what’s more, it’s a fulfilling and satisfying meal. There is nothing not to love about this killer combination.
However, I am not the one who created this winning dish. I was inspired by a cookbook that I browsed randomly at the book store. I came home and created my own version. If you are not a pork eater, you can easily make this dish into a sweet and sour chicken noodles, which I am sure will be equally tantalizing.
This combo has certainly sparked a few ideas in me, think kung pao chikcken noodles. It can’t be half bad!
Serves 2 for lunch | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes
8 oz egg noodles
4 oz pork, sliced into thin pieces
2 tablespoons oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz bean sprouts, roots removed (optional)
1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
Salt, to taste
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
3 dashes white pepper
1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar
Boil the egg noodles until al dente. Rinse quickly with cold water, drained dry and set aside.
Marinate the pork with all the ingredients in the Marinade, for 15 minutes.
Heat up the oil in a wok or skillet. When the oil is heated, add the garlic and stir fry until aromatic. Add the pork into the wok, stir and cook until they are almost cooked. Add the bean sprouts, follow by the noodles. Add the oyster sauce. Stir to combine well with noodles and all the ingredients in the work or skillet, add a little salt to taste. When the bean sprouts are wilted and cooked but remain crunchy, the dish is ready to be served.
