This is one of our all-time family favourites. I was taught how to cook this dish by my wife, and she in turn learned it from a dear family friend. Sharing recipes is fun!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
80g dry asian noodles or vermicelli
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 onion, diced
1 small slice bacon, trimmed of fat and chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
100g lean minced meat, (your choice of beef, lamb, chicken or pork)
1 celery stick, diced
1/2 red or green capsicum, seeded and diced
1 small carrot, diced
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1/2 teaspoon chilli sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Method

  1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Refresh briefly under cold running water, then drain and set aside.
  2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in a small frying pan and quickly scramble the beaten egg. Set aside.
  3. Heat half the remaining oil in a wok over a high heat. Add the onion and fry until beginning to brown around the edges then tip into a bowl. Fry the bacon until crisp, then add it to the onion.
  4. Add the garlic to the wok and fry for 5 seconds only. Add the mince and fry until evenly browned. Tip into the bowl with the onion and bacon.
  5. Add the remaining oil to the wok. Add the celery, capsicum, carrot and cabbage and stir-fry over a medium heat until the vegetables soften. Add the noodles and return all the reserved cooked ingredients to the wok. Add the chilli and soy sauce and toss everything together well. Tip onto a platter and serve from the centre of the table.
