serves 4 – 6

800 g diced pork – I use pork fillet or leg of pork
125 ml cornflour
salt and pepper
oil for frying

For the noodles
1 packet Woolworths Asian Medium Wholewheat Noodles
30 ml vegetable oil
1 large onion – halved and sliced
2 – 3 cloves garlic – finely chopped
thumb-size piece ginger – finely chopped
1 red pepper – sliced in strips
1 green pepper – sliced in strips
1 red pepper – sliced in strips
1 chili – finely chopped
80-100 ml thick soy
15 ml sugar or grated palm sugar (you can use honey, but I find it too overpowering)
10 ml peanut oil
juice of 1 lime

To serve
chopped cashew nuts
white and black sesame seeds
chopped chilli

For the meat. Cut the meat in even sized-cubes and season with salt and pepper. Dust with the cornflour. Heat some oil in your wok and fry the meat cubes until golden brown and cooked through. Remove meat from the wok, keep aside.  Pour oil out and clean wok with a paper towel. Place the noodles in a big bowl, top with boiling water and allow to stand for at least 15 minutes. Heat a little oil in your wok. Add the onions and stir fry until it starts to colour. Add all the peppers, garlic and ginger. Stir fry on high heat until the peppers are cooked but still firm. Add the noodles and stir fry. Add the soy and peanut oil and season with salt and pepper.  Lastly add the meat and mix and serve with a squirt of lime juice, chopped chili and chopped cashews.
