Ingredients

Sauce

  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon chilli and garlic sauce

Noodles

  • 450 grams dried noodles
  • 500 grams pork mince
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds optional

Instructions

  • In a small bowl or jar mix together all sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Place a large saucepan of water on to boil and cook the noodles according to the packet directions. Chop broccoli into small bite sized pieces and add to the pot of noodles just as they are finishing cooking for another minute until tender. Drain both noodles and broccoli and set aside.
  • In a frying pan, heat the peanut oil. Cook the pork mince until brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.
  • Add peanuts, broccoli and noodles to the browned mince and mix through sauce. Cook for 5 minutes stirring until the sauce thickens and coats the noodles. Sprinkle over sesame seeds and serve.

Notes

I like to use Chang’s long life noodles
Vegan/Vegetarian Option: Replace pork with more veggies or some crispy tofu.
