Long Life Noodles for Chinese New Year

The Long Life Noodles that were prepared for Chinese New Year were certainly a hit and disappear quickly. This dish is served hot with the BBQ Pork. The name of this dish referred to Long Noodles = Long Life. 

BBQ Pork

The BBQ Pork recipe was a recipe given to me by a classmate who's Mom use to make for Sunday Dinners. It is easily done using Salt, Pepper and Hoisin Sauce. Hoisin is available in the Asian section in a Supermarket.  

Ingredients for the dressing of this salad

  • 3T dark Soya Sauce
  • 2T light Soya Sauce
  • 2T Oyster Sauce
  • 1/2 sugar

  •  1 lb noodles
  • Fresh ginger, minced
  • Garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb BBQ Pork, thin julienned 
  • 3 cups Bean Sprouts*
  • Green onions, cut into 1 inch lengths 
Cook noodles in salty water. Drain.

In a skillet, saute minced ginger and minced garlic clove in oil.
Saute thinly sliced onion until soften then add thin julienned BBQ Pork. 
Add Bean sprout*, green onions and noodles. Add dressing, stir and heat thoroughly. 
Serve hot.

*In place of Bean Sprouts, as there is a danger of food borne illness, I left them out. 
I thought that Shiitake Mushroom would have been a great addition to this dish.  I had bought Fresh Snow Pea Shots for the recipe but used then in the salad instead!
