Char Sui Pork with Noodles

This is our first ever dinner recipe or even savoury recipe on this blog, and it is called Char Siu Pork with noodles! This recipe is a yummy and easy evening for the whole family. The hardest part of this meal would have to be preparing all of the ingredients, and this is the biggest time consumer of the recipe, however once you know the steps well you should find it easy to prepare them all quickly.

Another hard point of the meal is cooking the pork so that it is not over done or under done. We did this by putting it on a fry pan for four minutes each side so that the juices and flavours of the pork could be sealed, and we followed by putting it in the oven for about 10 minutes to cook through.

We are a family who loves our greens and so there are quite a few green vegetables in this recipe, but if you are not much of a fan of greens you can also take some out of the recipe. There is a lot of sauce from the pork and vegetables which is great for the noodles in this dish. If you feel like you don’t have enough sauce, you can always add some more Lee Kum Kee char siu sauce.
