I adore this recipe. It is one of my all-time faves. I add garlic to it too, and sometimes a handful of beansprouts at the very very end. (And to be honest I add WAY more soy sauce, but I don't recommend it since my salt tolerance is insane!)

I also tried it with noodles but with 2 tsp of five spice and enjoyed it. Cooking for 8 minutes is probably the maximum time needed, the pork was a bit overcooked so I'd do it for a slightly shorter time.

Delicious, used only one and a half teaspoons of five spice powder and that was plenty also cooked noodles in with it, will definately make again.
