Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 3 tablespoon tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 fat cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 450 gram NZ Pork schnitzel, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon oil, preferably sesame or peanut oil
  • fresh or dried noodles for 4 people
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 of a green cabbage, finely sliced (about 2-3 cups)
  • 1 cup of mung bean sprouts
  • a handful of chopped coriander

Method

  • 1
    In a bowl, combine the oyster sauce, tomato sauce, sweet chilli sauce, garlic and salt. Add the sliced NZ pork and stir to coat the meat evenly. Set aside for 5 minutes to marinate while you prepare the vegetables and noodles.
  • 2
    Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a wok or heavy-based frying pan, add a quarter of the marinated NZ pork, tossing quickly until the meat is sealed. Remove from the pan and set aside. Continue cooking the pork in small batches this way, adding a little more oil if you need to. If you add all the meat at once, the pan temperature will drop significantly and the meat will stew rather than seal.
  • 3
    Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions while the meat is cooking.
  • 4
    When all the meat is sealed, return it to the pan, scrape any remaining marinade into the pan as well and pour in the beaten eggs. Toss to combine well. Add the spring onion and shredded cabbage and stir-fry so that the cabbage becomes coated in the marinade and begins to soften.
  • 5
    Drain the noodles thoroughly and add them to the pan, folding them through the other ingredients. Continue cooking until the mixture begins to look almost dry, then add the bean sprouts and fresh coriander. Serve in bowls.

Notes

  • If you like your noodles really spicy, add more sweet chilli sauce to your taste.
