Oodles of Noodles

Today marks the year of the snake as the Chinese New Year begins. And since long noodles symbolize long life in Chinese culture, it seems only fitting to revisit my delicious post on BBQ Pork Buns.

Except today will be a little different. Today I'm making dinner, not dim sum. And as much as I love dim sum, I don't want to eat it for dinner. So instead of making the whole BBQ Pork Bun recipe, I'm going to double the amount of marinade and stop after slicing the meat.

After you get that far into my recipe, read on to find out how to make this long life inspiring dish. Or you could buy some Char Sui in your China Town after watching the Lion Dance and save yourself a little time!

Char Sui Stirfry - serves 4

1 recipe Char Sui / BBQ Pork, made with double marinade
1 box of spaghetti or Chinese noodles
1 227 g package of button mushrooms, quartered
2 carrots, peeled and sliced into circles
1 onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oil in a large frying pan and stir fry veggies and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2. While veggies are cooking, cook pasta as directed.

3. Toss pasta with veggies and serve sliced Char Sui on top of pasta stir fry. Drizzle sauce from the pork on top of each plate.

4. Enjoy and eat noodles without cutting them into small pieces for wishes of long life.
