Ingredients
  • 400 g fresh noodles , around 1 pound
  • 100 g pork belly , sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic , sliced
  • 2 dried chilies , I skipped but optional in case you want it to be slightly spicy
  • 300 g green beans , you can adjust based on personal preference
  • oil , if you are using other part of pork instead of pork belly
  • 1 thumb ginger , minced
  • 2 green onions , cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups water , or slightly more if needed
Instructions
  1. Cut the pork belly into thin slices. Usually, there is no need to marinate pork belly. Trim the green beans and cut into halves. Prepare all the other ingredients too.
  2. Throw pork belly into wok, fry over medium fire until you see there is pork fat oil coming out. Add garlic, ginger and green onion. Fry for another minute until aroma.
  3. Place green bean in and continue frying for couple of minutes. Add dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, salt and sugar. Stir everything together. Pour 2 cups of water. Bring to boil.
  4. Lay the noodles to the liquid by two batches. Each time after laying the noodles, press them down to soak in the liquid. Cover the lid immediately and then cook for 4 -5 minutes. During the process, you can turn the noodles slightly over once. At this time, the sauce will be almost absorbed by the noodles.
  5. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Please note, after cooling down, the noodles will become very sticky.
