Chilli ginger pork and noodles

12 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 4
  • 400g packet wholegrain wok-ready noodles
  • 250g lean pork medallion, trimmed of any fat, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 300g mushroom cups, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, coarsely grated
  • 115g punnet fresh baby corn, halved lengthways
  • 4 green shallots, cut into 3cm lengths
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 bunch choy sum, stems and leaves coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 3 teaspoons reduced salt soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chilli paste
  • ½ cup unsalted, roasted cashews
  1. Place noodles in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Stand 2-3 minutes, stirring to separate noodles. Drain.
  2. Toss pork in a bowl with 1 tablespoon oil. Heat a large, non-stick wok or frying pan over a high heat. Add half the pork. Stir-fry about 2 minutes, until browned. Remove. Repeat with remaining pork.
  3. Heat remaining oil in same wok. Add mushrooms. Stir-fry 3 minutes, until lightly browned and just tender. Add carrot, corn, shallots and ginger. Stir-fry 2 minutes.
  4. Return pork to wok with noodles and choy sum. Toss over heat about 2 minutes until choy sum is just wilted.
  5. Add combined sauces, chilli paste and 1 tablespoon water. Toss over heat until ingredients are coated in sauce and mixture is hot. Add cashews. Toss to combine.

Tips

  • Replace pork with lean chicken, beef or tofu.

  • Check noodle labels and choose the brand lowest in sodium.
