台式炒面/Taiwanese Style Pork and Shrimp Fried Noodles

I love this Taiwanese Style Pork and Shrimp Fried Noodles.  I made this fried noodles for dinner tonight along with some Oxtail and Tomato Soup and it was the perfect combination.  If you like spicy food you can add some of the dipping sauce for Oxtail and Tomato Soup to the fried noodles and it will give you a unique Szechuan flavour.  This fried noodles dish is very easy to make and takes about 20 minutes at most.  




Ingredients:
(Makes 2+ servings)



  • 8 oz fresh noodles
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 oz shredded pork
  • 2 oz cooked shrimp
  • 2 oz BBQ pork/char siu
  • Half medium sized onion
  • 2 oz carrot
  • 4 green onions


For the frying sauce:


  • 1 tbsp dark vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Half tbsp white pepper powder
  • 1 tsp roasted sesame seed


Directions:

  1. Julienne the carrot and onion.  Cut the green onion approximately an inch and a half long.  Mix all the frying sauce in a bowl.
  2. In a medium pot, add noodles to the boiling water, and cook for 1 minute.  Transfer to a colander, rinse with cold water and drain the water.  Add 1½ olive oil to the noodles, and then mix evenly.  Let cool.
  3. In a nonstick medium saucepan or a wok, heat 1½ tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add green onion, onion and carrot to cook.  Stir everything for about 2 minutes, until you can smell the fragrance of the onion.  Add pork, keep stirring everything for about 5 minutes, until the pork is not longer pink.  Add noodles, BBQ pork, shrimp and the frying sauce.  Keep stirring for 2 minutes, making sure everything is mixed evenly.  Transfer to a serving plate.  Now you are done.  Enjoy your Taiwanese Style Pork and Shrimp Fried Noodles, it's very delicious!
