Pork Chow Fun Recipe:
Let’s go to straight! I’m preparing this recipe with actual Hawaiian dhaaba style with pork and ham. People from other region make it with something different meat too. But this style is my favorite. The flavour of ginger makes it much more attractive and fragrant. Let’s see the recipe.
Ingredients We Need:
- 3 Tbsp (45 ml) of vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- 1/2 lb (225 g) of roast pork or char siu, thinly sliced
- 1/2 lb (225 g) of ham, thinly sliced
- ½ Tbsp of ginger, thumb-sized, minced
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of thinly sliced carrots
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) of thinly sliced celery
- 2 cups (500 ml) of bean sprouts, rinsed and drained
- 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of oyster sauce
- 2 Tbsp (30ml) of soy sauce
- 2 stalks of green onion, cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) pieces
- 12 oz (340 g) of wide rice noodles
How to Make Chow Fun Noodles Step by Step:
Step 1: Put out a large skillet over medium high heat. Pour 1 tbsp of vegetable oil or extra virgin olive oil.
Step 2: Let the oil warm up within 1 or 2 minute. Test the oil whether it is hot or not by dropping a bead of water or a slice of onion. The water gets sizzle immediately if the water is hot enough.
Step 3: Add ½ lb of roast pork, and ½ lb of ham into the hot water. Stirring for 5 minutes, add the minced ginger into the oil. By this time, the pink color should fade and they start turning into faded brown color.
Step 4: The fragrance of ginger will be strong enough. Add 2 stacks of chopped onion and saute it.
Step 5: Then add ½ cup of thinly sliced celery, and ½ cup of chopped carrot into the meat-onion mixture. Cook the veggies along with the ham, pork, and ginger.
Step 6: When the veggies are tender, and the meat are half done, remove the meat with a thong or fork.
Step 7: With vegetables, add 2 cups of bean sprouts in the griddle. Stir gently until completely warmed.
Step 8: Now, in another pan, drizzle the remaining 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. Place 12 oz of noodles in the pan, cook them stirring continuously. Well, here I’m using the original chow fun noodles, as they taste the best in this recipe. If you don’t have, then try to use wide short rice noddles.
Step 9: Well, about the noodles, if you prefer crispy edges, then definitely fry for 3 more minutes, all along 8 minutes in medium flame.
Step 10: Removing the cooked noodles from heat, toss into prepared mixture. Add 2 tbsp of soy sauce and 2 tbsp of oyster sauce to make the color reddish and to enjoy the tasty blust.
Garnish the homemade chow fun noodles with spring onion if desired, and have fun!
