Noodles with yesterday’s barbecue pork
Barbecue pork or cha siu is definitely something loved amongst everyone! We so often buy too much and have leftovers. At home we can also use leftovers to make the delicious cha siu noodles, but when dealing with the noodles remember the 3 part step. Hot oil, sesame oil, soy sauce – in this sequence!
Steam the leftover Cha Siu for 5 minutes, and at the same time boil a pot of water and add some oil and salt. Cook your choice of vegetable, in this instance Choi Sum.
Take out and place in bowl. With the same pot of water cook the noodles.
For fresh thick noodles featured here it only takes around 15 seconds, take out and remove as much water as possible using a colander. The noodles should look shiny and slightly transparent – this is the best texture.
Place in the bowl and add some heated oil and sesame oil and small amount of soy sauce.
Mix noodles then pour the leftover Cha Siu along with the sauce on top. Sprinkle some spring onions and serve immediately.
If you like spicy a dash of #gwzferrari sauce would definitely enlighten the dish! Enjoy !
•PS When cooking veg, it is crucial to add some oil
•PPS The sequence of Hot oil, sesame oil then soy sauce should be followed. Adding soy sauce first then hot oil would burn the soy sauce
•PPPS Fresh noodles can be bought at wet markets or noodle shops. One very good one is Yau Kee #有記
