Servings 3 people

Ingredients
  

  • 400g Udon noodles I use Vit's brand.
  • 300-350g Minced Pork can be subbed with minced chicken.
  • 200g broccoli cut into small florets
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Small piece ginger minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Mix in a bowl:

  • 4 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar

Instructions
 

  • Bring a pot of water to a simmer (not boil). Remove udon from packets and place into pot. Using a tong, gently shake the caked up noodles till they separate. Drain immediately.
  • Add 2 tbsp oil in a wok.
  • Add ginger then garlic and fry quickly. Add in pork mince. Don't stir the mince yet, let it sit in hot wok and get a nice char. Once you see the sides nice and brown, add in the broccoli. Mix all together. Add a tiny bit of water to get the broccoli cooking and keep tossing.
  • Add sauce and combine till pork/chicken has soaked up all the sauce. Turn off heat, add in sesame oil.

To Serve

  • Spoon udon noodles into bowl. Top with pork & broccoli mixture.
  • Garnish with spring onions, sesame seeds or chilli flakes if preferred. Done.

Notes

Top tips as follows:
  • Don't overcook the broccoli till soft. You want some crunch.
  • Be careful with sesame oil, it can be overpowering if used too much.
  • Let the minced pork/chicken get a nice char at the bottom before tossing everything to combine.
