Method

  1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the noodles following pack instructions. Meanwhile, mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp water, then stir in the soy sauce and honey, and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat. Add the pork and cook for 2 mins until browned all over. Add the ginger, garlic, pepper and mangetout, and cook for a further 2 mins. Reduce the heat, then add the soy and honey mixture, stirring and cooking until the sauce bubbles and thickens. Divide the drained noodles between 2 bowls. Top with the pork and vegetables, and finish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Tried this tonight and it was a bit hit.

I used babycorn, sweet peppers and mushrooms instead of mangetout and I added five spice to the pork before frying. I also poured sesame oil on the cooked noodles instead of using salt in the water.

A tip to those who found this to be salty; don't put salt in the poodle water and make sure to use dark soy sauce not light as light is much saltier.

Will be making again... just my way!

Really enjoyed this.
Due to having coeliac disease I used gluten free soy sauce and used rice noodles rather than egg noodles. Added mushrooms too.
I struggle to buy ready made stirfry sauces from the supermarket as they aren't gluten free but I shall be making this sauce over & over from now on. Easy to do & store cupboard ingredients.
Reminded me a lil of blackbean sauce from the chinese. Yummy!!!

I have to disagree with the others, I found this very bland. Will give it some thought because I like the fact that it is healthy>

I have made this a few times and it's always really yummy. I also add sesame oil to the noodles once cooked to give a bit of flavour.

Delicious and quick and easy to make. My 2 and 4 year olds really enjoyed this they had seconds and asked for thirds (but we'd finished it all already!) We used green beans and finely sliced carrots. Will make lots more times.

I was looking forward to making this receipe as love all the ingredients. All went well until I added the soy, honey and cornflour mixture and then it went all thick and congealed. I scoured the recipe for another liquid to add but nothing so added some stock of own accord - that sorted it out thankfully. I added some chilli too for a bit of warmth on a hot day! The mange tout were just wonderful and although pricey will buy again as made the dish.

Quick, easy and, most importantly, delicious! I'll definitely be making this again. I especially loved the thickness of the sauce :)

Whole family loved this, i didn't use snow peas as I couldn't get them and I used red peppers. I added wide flat rice noodles instead of egg and added them to the wok before serving. I served snake beans with a coconut soy peanut, chilli sauce on the side. YUMMY!!!

This is really simple to make! I'm a bit of a noob to cooking, and I thought I'd pick something simple.
This meal is awesome! Having your hands smell of ginger is amazing! It's light, not heavy and yet it's quite filling. It's not expensive either! If you're looking for a first meal to make (or a millionth) I'd definitely say give this one a try!

I made this dish with a couple of changes to the ingredients. I used a yellow pepper instead of a green pepper to add a bit more colour, and used chilli flavoured noodles to add a bit of ''bite' to the dish. I found that the chilli noodles went extremely well with the other ingredients.

I was very surprised that such a simple recipe could produce such a wonderfully tasting dish. This recipe is a winner as far as my family is concerned and no doubt the dish will be making a regular appearance on the family dinner table. Highly recommended.
