My 3 girls are big fans of noodles, especially #2 and #3. There is a noodles dish on my kids’ menu at least 3-4x in a week as it is pretty simple and quick to prepare. My noodles dishes come in a variety of styles. Braised pork ribs with egg noodles is a new addition in my menu 🙂
The braised pork ribs can be cooked in advance. I normally cook a big portion and store them in a few containers for deep freezing. The ribs can be heated up and eaten with rice or noodles on days when I am busy with stock check and orders.
I bought the wanton mein aka egg noodles from Tesco, which tasted good and very springy. The tip to having springy noodles is not to over boil them. I blanch them for about 5-8 minutes. Once removed from the pot and strained, rinse the noodles in cold filtered water, then add in some sesame oil so that the noodles will not clump together to form a pile of starch when they have cooled down.
The noodles in this pic was seasoned with a dollop of dark sauce, organic soy sauce, pepper and sesame seed oil (this is a fantastic and healthy flavor enhancer which I use daily). Chopped spring onions add lots of flavor to the dish too.
