I usually stock already cooked Udon noodles (frozen/vacuum-packed) and they are just perfect for one-person lunch. They only need to be warmed and loosened. While you are warming the Udon Noodles, you can cook this spicy pork. It’s quick, easy and yummy as always.
Udon 2 servings
Pork 200 to 250g *thinly sliced, can be Beef or Chicken
Salt 1 pinch
Potato Starch Flour 1 tablespoon or more
Sesame Oil / Canola Oil 1 teaspoon
Garlic 1 clove *grated
Ginger 1 small piece *grated
Spring Onion 2 to 3 *finely chopped
Soy Sauce 2 tablespoons
Mirin 2 tablespoons
Water 3 to 4 tablespoons
Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) 1 to 2 teaspoons
Sugar 1 to 2 teaspoons *optional, only if you like the sauce sweeter
Toasted Sesame Seeds 1 tablespoon
Cook/warm Udon Noodles as instructed, then drain well.
Place all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Slice Pork steak(s) or a block of Pork as thin as you can. Give 1 pinch of Salt and massage, sprinkle Potato Starch over and coat the pork slices with it. This layer of starch will turn to jelly-like when combined with the sauce.
Heat Oil in a frying pan and cook Pork until nicely browned. Add the sauce and stir to combine well.
Place drained warm Udon Noodles in a bowl, cover with the pork mixture and enjoy!
