Servings: 4 yield(s)
  • 150 g pork belly, skin remove and thinly sliced
  • 200 g chicken thigh, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup finely sliced Chinese cabbage (also called wombok or Napa cabbage)
  • 50 g snow peas
  • 2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 180 g dried vermicelli rice noodles (bihon noodles)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 spring onions (scallions), sliced
  • lime wedges to serve
  1. Place the pork belly and chicken into a cold large pan or wok. Turn the heat on high and when the pork and chicken start sizzling, allow the fat to render for 3-4 minutes or until the meat pieces are golden and cooked through. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pork and chicken to a plate (leave the fat behind in the pan).
  2. Add the garlic and onion to the same frying pan. Stir-fry over high heat for half a minute. Then add the carrot, cabbage and snow peas. Stir-fry for another minute. Then add the chicken stock, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Stir to combine. Then place the noodles into the sauce. Use your tongs to toss the noodles as they cook in the sauce. Continue cooking and stir-frying for 2-3 minutes or until the noodles are tender and have soaked up all of the sauce. Add the pork and chicken back into the pan along with a pinch of pepper and the spring onions. Toss until combined. Divide among serving bowls. Serve with a lime wedge on the side.
