How we came up with this recipe

The beauty of cooking pork in a stir fry is that it cooks quickly but still tastes amazing, while we can also throw in so many vegetables for those all important vitamins. 

While cooking a stir fry isn’t too complicated – just flash fry your pork meat strips, add vegetables and your sauce plus cooked noodles and you are good to go – I wanted to make sure there was a recipe out there that meant we had a REALLY good pork stir fry that was a go-to, nailed-on delicious recipe, every time. 

With just a few simple store cupboard ingredients, the marinade and sauce are spot on and super easy to make.


Pork Stir Fry Ingredients Notes

  • Pork – Pork loin medallions are perfect for this dish as they are super quick to cook. They are also really lean and tender. You can find pork medallions in all supermarkets or your local butcher
  • Vegetables – In this I use mangetout and red peppers, but you can use whatever stir fry veg you like. Mushrooms, carrots, green beans, it’s up to you. Just try to keep it varied and colourful
  • Oil – I use vegetable oil as we’re cooking at a high heat for this
  • Ginger and garlic – I use fresh in this dish as we’re cooking it in the oil first 
  • Noodles – I go for medium dried egg noodles 
  • Crushed peanuts – This is an optional garnish but adds a nice crunch
  • For the marinade – Cornflour, bicarbonate of soda, soy sauce and water. (You can, of course, use reduced sodium sauce if you prefer it less salty)
  • For the stir fry sauce – Oyster sauce, soy sauce and water

How to make Pork Stir Fry Noodles

1. Marinate the pork strips, cook the noodles, prepare your veg and make up your sauce.

2. Heat the oil in a wok or pan until hot, add the garlic and ginger, cook the pork, then add the veg. Pour over the sauce and coat well. Add the noodles and warm through. Serve sprinkled with the peanuts.


Substitutions

  • Vegetables – This is down to your personal preference. Go for whatever needs using up in the fridge or what you like in a stir fry
  • Noodles – I prefer the flavour and consistency of dried egg noodles and they don’t take long to soften, but you can use straight to wok noodles if you prefer

Leftovers

In the fridge You can keep this recipe in the fridge for 3 days. Reheat fully before serving or eat cold.

Reheating leftovers Just refresh with a splash of water or an ice cube when you’re reheating to stop it from drying out.

In the freezer Cooked noodles don’t generally freeze very well, but I would rather freeze than throw it away. If you can freeze it without the noodles, that would be best. Make sure you defrost thoroughly before reheating.

Top tipS

Cooking the noodles 

Cook the noodles until they’re just al dente. (You can also rinse them in cold water when you drain them to stop them cooking.)

 Then add them to your cooked pork, vegetables and sauce to warm through and let them soak up the sauce.

Cooking the pork to perfection

➡️ 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.

➡️ Pork medallions cook quickly in strips so be careful not to overcook them.

Time saving

If you have more time to play with earlier in the day, chop up your veggies and mix the sauce and marinade together ahead of time. Then you can cook the rest up in about 10 minutes!

FAQs

Is it important to marinate the pork?

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.

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.

Is there a good pan you could recommend for this recipe?

You could either use a wok if you have one that’s big enough, or any kind of decent saute pan.

I recently tasked myself with trying out a variety of one-pan pans in a quest to find out which ones were up to the important job of making an all-in-one meal.
