Thank you COOKRITE for your tips. I followed them to a T. What a gorgeous meal. After reading a few comments I added two onions and swapped the green pepper for a red and yellow pepper (I was cooking for four). I also tripled the sauce ingredients. Velveting the pork and then marinating made it both tender and gave it such a depth of flavour. I cooked the noodles for four minutes and then rinsed under cold water and set aside until the veg and sauce were done. I then added the noodles and pork to the wok and mixed everything together before serving. Everyone loved it. Better than a chinese carryout any day.

The best way to get the flavour spot on.. Slice pork thin..toss with 2tsps of baking soda..this is called velvetizing. Let sit for 15 mins. rinse and pat dry.. add back to bowl with a thumb of finely chopped ginger, 1-2 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tsp crushed chilis and 2tbsp of good soy sauce..let marinate for 1/2 hour. do not drain or rinse. Stir fry by itself at med. hi heat. just till tender. Set aside and follow rest of recipe. toss with noodles and stir fried veggies.. Top with chopped green onion and chopped cashews. Voila!! The velveting can be done for beef and chicken..You wont be disappointed.

Very tasty. I doubled the quantities for 3 of us (except the noodles) and it was just right.

Delicious, added some extra veggies and made wholewheat egg noodles

Tasty and quick - just right for a weekday meal. I used an onion, red pepper and thin strips of carrot so it looked colourful and the timings were fine using diced pork. Bear in mind the sauce is more of a coating than a sloppy runny job, but we didn't mind this - it was easier to eat with chopsticks (!) and it means it gave the flavour without too much of a sugar overload.

Yum, yum! Changed the mange tout for frozen broad beans and added 150g cashew nuts at the end

Had some firm tofu that needed using up so added that too. Very nice

Very nice. So easy to make and can easily substitute meat or vegetables to whatever is available.

Loved this! So quick and easy. Added more garlic and a green chilli. Also added baby corn along with the mange tout because they didn't sell it separately in the supermarket. I am undecided whether the sauce needs doubling. I think it all depends on how much of a sauce you like.

Easy flavoursome recipe. Have made this a few times now but with some alterations -instead of mangetout/green peppers I use red peppers, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, baby corn and cashew nuts, also I use a capful of sesame seed oil in the soy sauce and honey mix instead of seeds just because of what i had in the cupboard. Turns out perfectly every time and so quick to make. One of my favourites
