  1. Over a high heat, bring a pan of water to the boil (for the noodles). Chop the onions into chunky lengths. Heat the oil in a wok, tip in the broccoli and stir fry for 2 minutes until it starts to soften

  2. Tip the noodles into the boiling water and boil for 4 minutes until softened. Meanwhile, add the pork strips to the wok and fry until the meat changes colour. Add the onions and mushrooms and cook for a minute or so until the mushrooms start to soften.

  3. Stir in the sauce until everything is well coated. Drain the noodles and toss into the wok with the beansprouts and cashews. Heat until the beansprouts start to soften slightly then serve.

want to try this but having tried most supermarkets I don't seem to be able to obtain cantonese sweet & spicy sauce. Also most of the supermarkets only stock thin or medium egg noodles. please help. PHIL.
