Black pepper minced meat spinach noodle

Finished yoga, feeling good about myself, didnt wanna eat unhealthy food so i decide to cook. by the time i reach the supermarket, all the vegetables are mostly 'dead' if not rotton. luckily there is always the good old french beans in the fridge... and my last roll of spinach noodles!

Feeling like having something hot and soupy, so wanted to make meatballs so that the soup will have taste. however, when defrosting the minced pork, i 'cooked' it. so no choice lor, cannot make meat balls liao.... can only stir fry and make dry noodles.

Armed with my bottled pepper sauce and minced garlic in oil, its almost effortless to cook this healthy and tasty dish!

Even fussy hubby say its nice okay? ;P

What you need?
- 1 portion of dried spinach noodle
- 1 handful of french beans (wash, trim off both ends, cut into 1 inch length)
- 1/3 pack of minced pork (1 pack from NTUC cost around $2.50), marinate with pepper, soya sauce, wine and sesame seed oil.
- 2 tablespoon of lee kum kee black pepper sauce
- minced garlic in oil

How to do it?
Bring water to boil, add 2 teaspoon of cooking oil (this prevent the noodles from sticking).
When boil, add noodles and cook until soft. Will take approximately 5 mins as spinach noodle is not instant noodle.

Remove noodles from water, pour water away and rinse with cold water. This will stop the noodle from continue cooking. Drain water, put a dash of sesame seed oil and mix well. This will prevent noodle from sticking while you cook the minced meat

Heat pan, put minced garlic in olive oil and stir fry until garlic browns. Add french bean and stir fry for 3 mins.

Add minced meat, cook for 2 mins and add 1/3 cup of water. Braise for another 3 mins, until minced pork is fully cooked.

Add black pepper sauce and mix well.

Pour minced meat sauce (with french bean) over noodle and serve.
