Fried Noodles Recipe

(Mee Goreng)

Ingredients : Serves 4

250 g egg noodles

1 pork chop

250 g raw shrimps

4 tablespoons peanut oil

4 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 onion, chopped finely

1 fresh red chili, seeded and sliced

1/2 teaspoon dried shrimp paste

2 stalks celery, sliced finely

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1-2 tablespoons light soy sauce

Salt to taste

Small wedge of cabbage, shredded finely



6 scallions

Thinly sliced cucumber

Fried onion flakes


Method :

Use a pot with hot water and soak the egg noodles. Bring to boil a large saucepan of water. Drain the noodles and drop them into the boiling water for about 1-3 minutes depending on the noodles. Some will cook faster while some will be slower. Keep testing a strand every half minute to ensure the noodles are not overcooked. It should be tender but still firm to bite. Once cooked, drain in colander and run cold water through them until cool to prevent continual cooking in their own heat. Drain well.


Cut away the rind and bone from the pork chop and cut into small dice. Shell and devein the raw shrimps. Heat a wok with peanut oil and saute the onion, garlic and chili until the onion is soft and start to turn golden. Add in the dried shrimp paste. Add the pork and raw shrimps and stir fry until cooked through. Add celery, cabbage, pepper and salt. Fry for a further minute or just until tender. Vegetables should still taste crisp when bite. Add the noodles and keep tossing. Season with soy sauce to taste. Remove into a serving dish and sprinkle some onion flaks over the top. Garnish with chopped scallions, green leaves by sprinkling them over at the top. Arrange sliced cucumbers around the edge of the dish. Serve hot.
