stir-fried tang hoon with pork belly, prawns and vegetables

I like tang hoon. It is not my favourite noodle, but it makes a nice change from the yellow noodles and the kuay teows and that, coupled with the fact that it is a really easy noodle to cook, makes it my go-to when I am in a rush or at a loss as to what to cook for lunch or dinner.

This dish cooked up in 10 minutes.

The first thing I did was to marinate the pork with light soy sauce, sesame oil, grounded white pepper and corn flour.

I also shelled and de-veined some prawns, and shredded a carrot and cut a bunch of vegetables.

In a wok, I sauteed some minced garlic for about 30 seconds.

I added the pork and continued to stir-fry for another 2- 3 minutes.

Then in went the prawns, carrot and vegetables.

Once the vegetables had wilted, I added the tang hoon which had been soaked in boiling water for 2 minutes and then drained.

I added fish sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce and grounded white pepper. And mixed everything together.


I served the tang hoon immediately.

A quick and easy but totally satisfying meal!
