This is so tasty, easy to make and 99% fat free!! It's like the Chinese version of the Italian ragu. Recipe adapted from Eupho Cafe.

Sweet sauce 甜醬面 4 tbsp
Water 1 cup
Minced pork 400g
Cooking rice wine 2 tbsp
Cornstarch 1.5 tbsp
Minced ginger 2 tbsp
White part of spring onions 2 stalks
Spicy broad bean sauce 辣豆瓣醬 1~2 tbsp
Brown sugar 1 tbsp

1. Mix together ground bean sauce, sweet sauce and water, set aside.
2. Add wine and cornstarch to the minced pork, blend well. Cut the spring onions as finely as possible.
3.Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick saucepan and fry the minced pork until the colour turned to white. Add in ginger and spring onion, followed by sugar. Cook until sugar has dissolved and add in broad bean sauce. Stir until well blended.
4. Add 1 to 3 and continue to stir until mixture has thicken over a low flame.
5. Pour the meat sauce over noodles and serve it with cucumber strips or boiled greens on side.

I love asparagus! Yet another way to devour these.

I notice this is how they order it in HK traditional coffee shop 茶餐廳. Very refreshing, I love it!

Throw in a dessert just to complete the meal.
