Celebrating The Chinese New Year
Will you be celebrating the Chinese New Year? We really enjoy our Chinese food and love nothing more than a fake-away. One of our favourites is sweet and sour pork noodles.
Ingredients used are:
Pork loin steaks, fat removed and cut into small pieces.
low-calorie cooking spray.
1 large onion – diced.
Salt and pepper.
1 red pepper – cut into strips.
150ml chicken stock.
4tbs light soy sauce.
Fresh pineapple chunks
2 carrots cut into strips.
Chinese 5 spice.
x2 garlic cloves – we used frozen.
1 tbs of cornflour.
x4 tbs of tomato purée.
x1 chilli pepper
x1 tbs of white wine vinegar.
How to make:
We put our wok over a high heat (we have an electric hob), whilst waiting for it to heat we sprayed the pork with cooking spray, seasoned and then added it to the wok. We then cooked for 5 minutes – until cooked through. When the pork was cooked we then transfer onto a plate and set aside.
We then sprayed the wok and returned it to the heat, adding the onion, carrots, mangetout, baby corn and peppers. We stir fried them for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes we then added the pork and continued for a few minutes before adding the stock and garlic.
Whilst that lot was cooking away we got a bowl and mixed 2 tbs of water with the Chinese 5 spice and cornflour along with white wine vinegar. Stirring the mixture in with the meat veg and stock. Cooking this on a low heat until the mixture has thickened.
Just before we remove the meal off the heat we like to add our pineapple chunks to heat them up for the last-minute or so.
Some of us like our sweet and sour pork with noodles and some of us like them with Tilda rice so we always prepare both with the meal. We cooked these to the packets instructions and then serve with our meal.
Of course we all enjoy side dishes – we had sweet and sour prawns, crackers and duck wraps.
This dish is quick and easy to make, it has been a family favourite for a long time now. We have made this dish to celebrate the Chinese New Year and to #IgniteYourTastebuds
These ingredients fed five of us.
