30 minutes meal: Stir-Fry Noodles


Back from an outing to the Science Centre, I wanted a quick and easy dinner.  A quick look in the fridge, I took out the frozen prawns and minced pork.  Grab a stick of carrot and the remaining cai xin.  

Read my papers, check Facebook.......... and oops, it's already 6 plus in the evening!  I have not even shelled the prawns!  Marinate the minced pork and shell the prawns.  Crush some ginger, heat the wok and stir fry the prawn shells for a quick tasty stock.  While waiting for the prawn stock, sliced an onion, minced a few cloves of garlic, washed & cut the veggies.  I'm using dried bean mee (豆签), hence need to boil the noodles briefly in hot water to soften it a little before stir-frying.

To cook:
1) Heat wok on high heat.  Add some oil and stir-fry the sliced onion, minced pork, garlic till fragrant. 

2) Add the carrot, noodles and prawn stock.  Cover and let it cook for about 2 minutes.

3) Check seasoning.  Add caixin and prawn.  Cover and cook for another minute.

4) Stir in a little cornstarch solution (optional) and a beaten egg.  Stir and remove from heat.

5) Garnish with Chinese parsley and serve hot immediately.

Check.......... 7pm and dinner is ready ;)
