Stir-fried Macaroni with Ground Pork Recipe

Saturday, November 29, 2008 | Labels: , , , |

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts this week as I have not had a chance to cook while there is still daylight and of course food photos look so much better in natural sunlight. Anyway, I feature another simple recipe that I whipped up as I was tidying up my fridge. I love pasta and sometimes I like pasta cooked in an Asian or Chinese style instead of the traditional way. The macaroni is flavoured with soy sauce and a tiny splatter of fish sauce - add some carrots and green onions, here you have it a tasty and simple method for cooking pasta an unconventional way.


Although macaroni is traditionally a western type of noodle, macaroni is very popular in Hong Kong's famous char chan tengs (or tea cafes) where macaroni is often served in chicken broth with accompany vegetables for a quick and tasty breakfast. I love Hong Kong's tea cafes as I am absolutely addicted to their famous stocking milk tea and of course the egg tarts! Anyway, I digress - do try this macaroni recipe out especially on those busy weeknights!

This is my first entry to Presto Pasta Nights created by Ruth and hosted by herself this round at Once Upon a Feast . If you want to join in the fun, check out her blog for more details.

Dry Curry Noodles with Shrimp Recipe


1 packet of macaroni
1/2 pound of ground pork
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsps worth of sliced carrots (optional)
3 stalks green onions, sliced

For flavouring:
3 tbsps light soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
Dash of sesame oil
White pepper, to taste

First, cook the macaroni (this can also work with other kinds of pasta or noodles) according to package instructions. Heat about 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a wok until hot. Saute the garlic and green onions till fragrant. Add the ground pork and stir-fry around briskly. Add the flavourings and stir-fry the ground pork until cooked. Finally add the cooked pasta or noodles and stir around to mix evenly. Add more soy sauce if needed and mix well. I added the carrots before the noodles as I like my carrots softer, you can also just sprinkle the carrot slices on top of the macaroni after cooking according to your preference.

Wow! Another creative dish! Yes, daylight is always the best timing. Like u, I also do "fridge cleaning exercise" frequently. ;)

Ha ha! U and my chef like to add a lot of ingredients...When my chef cooks bee hoon or noodles, she adds a lot ingredients such that the proportion of bee hoon or noodles to ingredients are 50:50...sometimes when it seems that the ingredients are more, it becomes blurred regarding which is "主角" and which is "配角"! ;p

This looks like a very kid friendly recipe. Love it! Reminds me a lot of Vietnamese macaroni soup without the soup.
