3 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tbsp ketchup

1 tsp shrimp paste

1 tsp chilli powder

  • Step 1

    Start off by making the egg ribbons. Lightly beat the eggs in a small bowl. Heat a wok or non-stick frying pan over medium low heat. Add in 1 tablespoon of oil into the pan. Pour the egg into the pan and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan, using a spatula to spread the egg out. Cook, untouched over low heat until egg sets and releases. Use a spatula to transfer the egg to a cutting board and slice into thin ribbons.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, mix together the kecap manis, soy sauce, ketchup, sesame oil, shrimp paste and chilli powder.

  • Step 3

    Heat the remaining one tablespoon of oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the pork and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add the prawns and stir-fry until cooked. Then add the cabbage, noodles, bean shoots, spring onions (Scallions) and the sauce you made earlier. Stir-fry until well coated. Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowls

  • Step 4

    Top with chilli and serve with a lime wedge.

This recipe tastes just like what I remember from travelling through South East Asia. It’s everything you want – spicy, salty, umami and packed with flavour. Plus, it was ready in literally 20 minutes! Thanks, Marion, for another awesome mid-week meal.
