Meaty Fragrance Noodle

Here, I present to you my home cooked noodle, which I named it as Meaty Fragrance Noodle. I have wanted to cook this kind of noodle for quite sometime, but I have no idea which type of noodles should I use. I have no guts to try with dried wanton noodle, fresh yellow noodle or instant noodle. Till last Sunday, suddenly I got an idea to cook with organic spinach seaweed wheat noodle.

I bought a packet of this noodles (x4 pcs) from Jusco organic food corner at RM5.30 few weeks back. I was shocked to know that the price hikes up to RM7.20 during my recent shopping there. Wow, RM1.90 equals to 36% price increase ler! Too much!!

Anyway, the noodle is claimed to be no pesticides, no preservatives, no frying, no colouring, no bleaching agent. Besides, it's rich in insoluble fibres and powerful antioxidants. With organic spinach enhanced, it provides us iron to fortify our blood. So, forget about the price, and just go ahead to give it a try cuz the quality is irresistible.

My recipe for

Meaty Fragrance Noodle

1. 2 pcs of organic noodle

2. half carrot, cut into strips

3. 6 dried mushrooms, soften in hot water. 2 of it will be used for the sauce, and 4 mushrooms will have to cut into quarters. Leave the mushroom water to use later.

4. 300gms of minced pork, marinate with 1 tbsp of light soya sauce, few drops of sesame oil, and a dash pepper. Let it stand for 15 minutes.

5. 1 tbsp of chopped garlic

6. half tbsp of chili paste

7. 2 tbsp of light soy sauce

8. 4 tbsp of sunflower oil

9. The sauce (blended):
a. 1 onion
b. 6 cloves of garlic
c. 1 tbsp of soya bean paste
d. 2 soften dried mushrooms as per 3.
e. some water.

1. To prepare the noodle, just add the organic noodle (x2 pcs) to salted boiling water and cook for around 5 minutes until soft. Then, rinse in fresh water and pour onto plates.

2. Add oil to the heated wok and stir fry the chopped garlic till fragrant. Pour in the merinated meat and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add in the mushrooms and continue to stir fry for another 1 minute.

3. Add the chilli paste, light soy sauce, the blended sauce and some mushroom water. Let it simmer for roughly 3 minutes, and add in carrot strips. Off the fire, and pour the sauce over the cooked noodle.

And let me tell you. The outcome was really satisfying. Its appearance and portion are just perfect. The gravy is flavourful and scrumptious. The ingredients are sticking together with the smooth and tender noodle. I don't deny that I have done a good job although you may think that cooking organic noodle with meat gravy is a bit weird.
