Ingredients

  • 1 lbs fresh/dried flat rice noodles
  • 4 Tbsp cooking oil divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 6 oz pork loin or meat of your choice
  • 5 stalks of Chinese broccoli/ kai lan

Marinade for meat:

Seasonings:

  • 2 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp regular/light soy sauce add more to your taste as needed
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper powder

Instructions

Preparing:

  • If using dried rice noodles, soak in water for at least 2 hours. If you are using refrigerated sheets of rice noodles, they come in one large sheet or pre-cut. Microwave them for about 1 minute and then cut (if you need to) and then separate and loosen the noodle.
  • Marinate the pork slices with marinade for meat ingredients for 30 minutes and prepare other things while waiting
  • Separate the big stalks from the leaves of Chinese broccoli. Slice the stems diagonally into 1/2-inch piece

Cooking (I recommend cooking 2 portions at a time):

  • Preheat your wok (see note) on a high heat until it is really really hot. Add cooking oil
  • Crack in the eggs and let them fry a little bit, for about 10 seconds and then stir it around to break it up a little bit, but not too much. Push it to the side and add the pork slices and garlic and stir-fry until the pork turn color and cooked through, about 20-30 seconds. Dish everything out to avoid overcooking the pork and egg. Add the vegetables and stir-fry until it started to wilt but still fresh green and slightly crunchy
  • Wipe the wok clean and bring it back up to high heat. Add cooking oil. Add the stems of the Chinese broccoli you cut earlier and stir fry for about 2 minutes. Add the noodles, the seasonings and stir fry to make sure the noodles pick up the seasonings. The noodles will start to soften (may take a bit longer for dry noodles). Add the egg and pork back into the wok. Stir to mix everything. Have a taste and add more soy sauce if necessary. Transfer immediately to a serving plate and serve immediately
