Method

  • 1. Mix together the pork, ginger, garlic, spring onions and oyster sauce and set aside. This can be cooked straight away or marinate overnight.

  • 2. Put the rice noodles into a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Test by tasting after a few minutes to see if they are tender. Plunge into cold water to stop them cooking further. If you are cooking the noodles ahead of time, drizzle with a little sesame oil to stop them sticking together.

  • 3. Mix together the sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the noodles and stir well.

  • 4. Fry the mince with a little canola oil in a fry pan or wok, stirring frequently to break up the mince. When cooked through (around 3 – 4 minutes) add to the noodles along with the remaining ingredients, toss together and serve.
