  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the noodles. Cook for 4 mins, then drain well and set aside.

  2. Heat a wok over high heat and add the groundnut oil. When it starts to smoke, add the garlic, ginger, finely chopped mushrooms and shrimps. Stir well for a few secs, add the mince and stir-fry. When the meat starts to turn brown, add the rice wine and mix well. Season with the dark and light soy sauce, pour in the stock and bring to the bubble.

  3. After 1 min, season the pork with the toasted sesame oil, sprinkle over the spring onions and coriander, then stir in. Add the rice noodles and mix well. Serve in bowls and eat immediately, seasoned with a little more soy sauce, if you like.

Found this really bland. I can think of ten more tasty dishes to make with pork mince. We won't be having this again.

Used black fungus for my Chinese mushroom- it gave it some much needed crunch and soaked up the flavours beautifully. Used the shrimp and mushroom water for stock.

Add 1 cup of shredded chinese cabbage or other greens and fry it with the mince. Serve with sliced chillies in soy sauce as a condiment,

Delicious! I served it with Ken Hom's lettuce with oyster sauce, which is very quick to cook, and everybody loved it.

Added some strips of stirfried aubergine, and swapped dried mushroom and shrimp for fresh. Also used rice instead of noodles. Still very good :)

I've made this recipe a few times noe. It's easy, super quick and very tasty. I often us chestnut mushrooms as we've usually got some in the fridge and I also put in some extra veg; brocolli - bak choy - whatever is hanging about. Great mid-week dinner.
