Fried Noodles With Char Siu And Flowering Chives 叉燒韭菜花炒麵



Wondering what to do with the last remaining piece of char siu in the fridge, here's the answer! If you still haven't made any, this long weekend might be the time to do otherwise shop bought one is absolutely fine.

I know there are many of my readers who simply can't be bothered to cook after a long day at work but do long for that elusive homemade meal no matter how simple it might be. This is very economical (total cost ~ A$8.50) and only a few easy to get ingredients are needed  for a large platter of delicious noodles enough to feed four. I can promise it will better than anything on offer from your local noodle bar not to mention how much cheaper it is.



serves 3 to 4 as a one dish meal
you'll need;
500 g of dried eggs noodles, cooked till al dente, rinsed with cold water and drained well
oil for cooking
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
a small knob of ginger, chopped
250 g of homemade or shop bought char siu, sliced into thin strips
1 bunch of flowering chives or garlic chives
3 tbs of oyster sauce
3 tbs of light soy
3 tbs of caramel sauce (晒油)
1/4 cup of stock
a dash of white pepper
1 packet of bean sprouts



Prepare the aromatics, char siu and noodles and we are ready to start cooking.



Heat up a wok and saute chopped garlic and ginger for 30 seconds before adding the char siu and flowering chives. Stir fry on high heat for about 30 seconds.



Add in the noodles and mix well before adding seasonings and stock. Cook on high heat for a minute, stirring constantly. A pair of chopsticks help mixing easy.



Check for seasonings before adding the bean sprouts, mix well and cook for a further 30 seconds before serving.



I love to have some homemade Cantonese chili oil on the side but feel free to serve it with the condiments of your choice

  1. I would love this made for me after a long day at work! :) I have been extremely crazy-busy this week in the school clinic! That mental exhaustion really gets to you sometimes. Anyway I still managed to cook a few meals this week, and my family would love this one. It is now on my list of must make this weekend! Bookmarked!!!
