Minced Pork Noodles Tossed with Scallion Oil

 
Simple, unpretentious and comforting. The description of this Minced Pork Noodles Tossed with Scallion Oil is enough to make anyone want to give it a go. In lieu of the previous write up on shallot scallion oil, this noodle dish is the perfect trial run in utilizing that aromatic homemade scallion oil that you have probably just prepared previously.

In life, and in the kitchen, options and variation is crucial in making an environment more ideal and bearable. Therefore this noodle dish is not without its equally amazing variations. Therefore do not stop yourself from using bee hoon (rice vermicelli), mee pok (something that can be described as Chinese fettuccine) or even spaghetti for this (especially if you are living in the west). The same applies for the ingredients needed. Although minced pork is ideal, there is the option of using minced beef or minced chicken as well.

However you want to go about doing this, it is strongly recommended that you prepare more than you actually need for one simple reason. Leftovers. Yes leftovers are nothing to be scorned about. All that ‘effort’ involved in prepping, cooking and cleaning up means that you should maximize the amount of returns that you can get from preparing this. It is literally killing two birds with one stone. You indulge in a great meal, and can be assured that the next time you salivate on slurping up these delicious noodles again, a hot meal is just a microwave’s work away. Now who wouldn’t want that?
