Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
80ml oil or lard
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 small onions, sliced
4 fresh red chillies, seeded and chopped
125g barbecued pork, thinly sliced
250g raw small prawns, peeled and deveined
250g small squid tubes, cleaned and thinly sliced, (optional)
2 chinese sausages, steamed and thinly sliced
115g fresh bean sprouts, trimmed
1kg fresh rice noodles, sliced into 5 mm strips
2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
3 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 spring onions, chopped

Method

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a wok or large heavy-based frying pan and cook the garlic, onion and chilli over medium heat, stirring, until the onion is soft. Add the pork, prawns, squid (if using) and Chinese sausage and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes, or until all the seafood is cooked through. Add the bean sprouts and toss once or twice, then remove to a plate.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in the wok and add the rice noodles, stirring constantly until heated through. Add the soy sauce and oyster sauce and toss well to combine. Add the egg and stir constantly until it is set. Return the seafood and pork to the wok and toss to combine and heat through. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, and serve hot, garnished with the spring onion.

Note

  • Fresh rice noodles are sold at Asian grocery stores, and are known as ‘sa hor fun’.
