Good Ol’ Chinese Noodles

To all those overseas who crave the good ol’ Tze Char Noodles, I’d like to share this recipe with you. It’s not exactly the same as what you’d get for cheap in the neighbourhood restaurant you frequent weekly back in Singapore, but it’ll serve to satisfy your cravings.

What you’ll need:

  • prepared ingredients for Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pork
  • 1 serving of quick-cook spaghetti
  • 1 generous handful of spinach leaves
  • 2 inches of a medium sized carrot, sliced into small inch-long pieces
  • half a red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • a couple of fresh mushrooms, quartered (optional)
  • 1 tsp of vegetable oil
  • 2-3 tbsp of oyster sauce
How to do it:
  1. Get the pasta cooking in a pot. And place a wok on another hob, turned up to full whack.
  2. Add the garlic and onion into the wok to flavour the oil.
  3. Welcome the Aroma Fairies.
  4. Carrots go in ‘cos they take longer to cook through.
  5. Toss the pork in and add water from the pasta bit by bit, stir-frying till just done.
  6. If you’re having mushrooms with this, dump them in now.
  7. Add the oyster sauce and grab some pasta water to pour into the wok, till ingredients are almost completely submerged. Mix and watch your gravy form.
  8. Turn off the heat and drain your pasta. Get them in, together with the spinach leaves. Toss about till the spaghetti is coated with all the gravy goodness, and till the vegetable leaves have wilted just a little.
  9. Serve hot, with Pickled Green Chilli. More on that soon.
