Braised Noodles with Stewed Pork Slices is again, one of my experiments. Setting up this blog has resulted in me having to experiment with new recipes so that I can keep up with my postings! Haha!
Before you go “wah!” about this dish, let me tell you first that it is more a dish / recipe of convenience and simplicity than sheer cooking-from-scratch. So, the stewed pork slices come from the can and the noodles are from Sitiawan, Perak (where I previously cooked Sitiawan Noodle ala PabloPabla). Feel free to use any type of instant noodles but I think it will work well with the noodles which are slightly flat, not unlike fettuccine or linguine. As for the result, it’s simply delicious! Hochiak!
This is my recipe for Braised Noodles with Stewed Pork Slices
- 5 pieces of instant noodles (this should serve 3 to 4 people)
- 1 tin of stewed pork slices (cut into rings)
- 300 grammes bean sprouts (remove root)
- 1 small carrot (julienned)
- 4 cloves garlic (chopped finely)
- 2 large eggs (beaten)
- Have 150 ml warm water ready
- 4 tablespoons cooking oil (palm oil)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon of fish sauce
- 2 teaspoons of dark soya sauce
- 1 teaspoon of light soya sauce
- salt to taste
- 1/3 teaspoon of white pepper powder
Using a non-stick frying pan if available, fry the eggs in a couple of batches to form thin layers of fried egg. Cut the fried eggs to strips.
Next, boil sufficient water in a pot. Cook the noodles till al-dente and then, run it over cold water. Place them in a bowl. Drizzle the sesame oil over the noodles and stir well. Place aside.
Heat oil and saute garlic with carrots. Add fish sauce and about 50 ml of water. Open the tin of stewed pork slices and pork half of the stew into the carrots. Let the gravy simmer, add the rest of the water plus seasoning. Add the cooked noodles and bean sprouts and reduce to medium heat, stirring well to ensure noodles are coated with gravy. Cook for not more than 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, with the frying pan, heat up the pork slices with the remaining gravy from the tin till it begins to boil. Remove from heat. Pour gravy onto the noodles and mix well.
Serve noodles onto individual plates and garnish with egg strips and pork slices.
