I usually associate pork with the colder months and hearty weekend meals (like my Slow Cooker Pulled Pork). I don’t often cook it in the warmer months, even though I love it. I usually only cook it slowly too.

Well, I had to rectify that! Cue a super fast, super simple pork stir fry that is now firmly on our favourites list.

This Pork Stir Fry Noodles dish is full of colour thanks to the veggies I throw in, that sticky sauce is just lip-smackingly good and the noodles are quick and fun.

You’ll love this recipe because:

✅ Can be thrown together in 30 minutes

Marinated for depth of flavour

Healthy and colourful

FAQs about this Pork Stir Fry Noodles Recipe

How do you marinate the pork in the sticky sauce?

It’s surprisingly easy to make a marinade, so please, please don’t skip this step because it really does taste better!

This stir fry noodles recipe uses cornflour to add a coating to the meat and bicarbonate of soda to tenderise the meat. The meat only needs to be in the marinade for a short period of time for it to make a difference, so it’s perfect for a quick midweek meal.

How do you make the Pork Stir Fry Noodles?

Pork is perfect for a stir fry because it cooks so quickly.

Just flash fry your pork meat strips, add vegetables and your sauce plus cooked noodles and you are good to go. To make the noodles, cook until they’re just al dente. (You can also rinse them in cold water when you drain them to stop them cooking if you like.) Then add them to your cooked pork, vegetables and sauce to warm through and let them soak up the sauce.

TIPS: Make sure the oil in your pan is super hot before you start cooking. Don’t move the pork around too much when you first add it to the pan.

What kind of pork should I use for a stir fry?

Pork medallions are perfect for Pork Stir Fry Noodles as they are super quick to cook when cut into thin strips (so please be careful not to overcook). They are also really lean and tender. You can find pork medallions in all supermarkets or your local butcher.

Can I change the vegetables I add?

Yes! If you’re not keen on mangetout or red peppers, change it up for whatever you prefer or what you have in your fridge. Mushrooms, carrots, green beans… up to you. Just try to keep it varied and colourful.

Is this authentic Chinese food?

This recipe was actually taught to me in 2018 by The Dumpling Sisters, who teach simple tips and tricks for how to make Chinese home cooking really accessible.
