This dish is currently on high rotation in our kitchen as my obsession with Shiitake mushrooms continues… But vegetables aside, this dish is a winner as it’s packed with flavour and literally takes 20 minutes from prep to table. If you don’t like pork, simply replace with chicken mince. Enjoy!
LUXE / HEALTH Chilli Pork Noodles
500g lean pork mince
2 bunches Pak Choy (or whatever Asian greens you have in your fridge), sliced
6 spring onions, finely sliced
Handful Shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped
1.5 inches fresh ginger, grated
1 generous tbsp. chilli bean sauce (find this at your local Asian supermarket)
1 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. gluten free soy sauce
1 tsp. coconut sugar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 Lebanese cucumber, peeled and chopped into matchsticks
Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1 packet rice noodles
- In a small jug, mix together chilli bean sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, coconut sugar, garlic and 1/2 cup cold water. Set aside.
- Heat a little coconut oil in a wok, then add the pork mince, spring onions and mushrooms to the pan and toast for a few minutes until the meat starts to brown.
- Add the chilli sauce and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 5-6 minutes until the pork is cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly.
- Meanwhile, cook rice noodles according to packet directions. Rinse well, drain and set aside.
- Add the sliced Pak Choy to the wok and toss until greens are cooked through and wilted.
- Divide rice noodles between two bowls and spoon over pork mixture, including a generous spoonful of the chilli sauce.
- Serve with a sprinkling of fresh coriander and cucumber on the side.
