Pork Belly Drunken Noodles

This looks like a humble noodle dish, but the flavours of the basil, chilli and garlic come together to make a bowl of heaven. Use Thai holy basil if you can get it, but regular basil is fine as a substitute. You can make your own fresh rice noodles too, using Marion’s recipe.

Ingredients

5 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

3 birds’ eye chillies, roughly chopped

1 large yellow chilli, roughly chopped

2 tbsp vegetable oil or the rendered fat from the pork belly

200g (7 oz) skinless pork belly, sliced into thin strips

1 cup sliced Asian greens e.g. Chinese broccoli, Chinese kale, pak chok, bok choy

300g (10.5 oz) fresh rice noodles*

4 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tsp dark soy sauce

1 ½ tsp white sugar

1 heaped cup Thai holy basil*

Steps
  • Step 1

    Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic and chillies to a rough paste.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil or pork fat in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chilli paste and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the pork and stir-fry until almost cooked. Add the Asian greens and stir-fry for another 1 minute or until greens are tender and pork is cooked. Add the noodles, oyster sauce, fish sauce, dark soy sauce and sugar. Stir-fry until well combined.

  • Step 3

    Turn the heat off and toss through the basil. Serve warm.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – You can use Thai basil or regular Italian as a substitute for the Thai holy basil

    – Cooked spaghetti, dried rice noodles or cooked egg noodles can be used here too.

Delicious and easy to make GF

This was a delicious and simple dinner. I am Gluten free so I switch out the dark soy sauce for Coconut amino‘s, (which think has a similar color, viscosity and sweetness) And of corse used GF rice noodles.

I will definitely be making this again
