I had to use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, sweet chilli sauce instead of paprika, and soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce and it turned out really nice. I also used a wok and a wok ring, anyone having trouble thickening it should use that as it evaporates the excess water very quickly :)

not great, found the cornflour didn't thicken it very much too watery for my taste.

Really easy and very tasty. Have done this a few times now. I use a bit more stock than listed and also add some fresh sliced chili if I have any or tabasco if I don't.

Quick, easy, and gives a proper smokey bacon taste. Loved it!

Just made this; very good! Plain flour works fine if you have no cornflour and I added a little chilli just to give it a kick. I had to use more stock than is indicated in this recipe but that could be down to the type of noodles I used. Will be making it again!

I made this but added soy sauce and chilli, mushrooms and yellow pepper, chinese five spice, ans sweet chilli sauce, it definitely needed it. It would have been bland without it, but the end result was so delicious, and it took 10 mins from start to finish. I made extra and had the leftovers for lunch the next day. Will defo be making again.
