Recipe type: lunch/dinner
Cuisine: Filipino
Serves: 6-8 people
  • 250g of fresh egg noodles (or 2 packets of instant noodles)
  • 250g pork meat, sliced thinly
  • 1 Chinese sausage sliced diagonally (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • ½ cup celery stick chopped
  • ½ cup green beans sliced diagonally
  • ½ cup carrot julienned
  • ½ cup cabbage sliced thinly
  • 2-3 cups chicken stock or broth
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil a required
  1. In a wok, or deep frypan, sauté garlic and onion in a little cooking oil until fragrant.
  2. Add the sliced pork and stir fry for 5-6 minutes or until cooked through. If using it, add the sliced Chinese sausage, let it sweat and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
  3. Add in the green beans, carrot, celery and cabbage in order of their cooking time and stir frying the whole time.
  4. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce and some pepper to taste and stir-fry for another minute or two – be careful not to overcook the vegetables. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. In another saucepan, bring 3 cups of chicken stock to the boil. I normally use a organic, real chicken stock powder for this, but in a pinch you can use the ones from the instant noodles). Cook for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Drain the noodles.
  6. Combine noodles and the stir-fried meat and vegetables and toss well until well distributed.
  7. Serve hot with some fish sauce on the side, and fresh calamansi to squeeze over the top just prior to eating.
