Mains - Misc


  • 4 oz noodles (flat, soba or similar noodles)
  • 1/4 c oyster sauce
  • 1 T fish sauce
  • 4 T lime juice
  • 1 T tabasco
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 2 t minced garlic
  • 225 g ground pork
  • 2 egg (large)
  • 1 c onion
  • 1 c thinly sliced bell pepper (whichever colour you want)
  • 1 T chopped cilantro (for garnish)


Prepare the sauce by stirring together the oyster sauce, fish sauce, tabasco, and the juice of one lime (3-4 Tbsp).

Mince the garlic and thinly slice the onion and bell pepper.

Bring water in a pot to a boil, and cook noodles until soft (3 to 4 minutes). Drain and set aside.

Add one tablespoon of vegetable oil to a large skillet, along with the minced garlic and ground pork. Sauté the pork and garlic until the pork is cooked through. Push the pork to the outer edges of the skillet, then crack the two eggs in the center. Scramble the eggs with a spatula until they are lightly set, then mix them in with the ground pork.

Add the sliced onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Continue to sauté until they just begin to soften (3-5 min.). Drain the soaked noodles, then add to the skillet along with the prepared sauce. Stir and Sauté for 1-3 minutes more, or until the noodles fully soften and the sauce has coated the contents of the skillet.

Top with freshly chopped cilantro, then serve.
