highlyeccentric: Demon's Covenant - Kitchen!fail - I saw you put rice in the toaster (Demon's Covenant - kitchen!fail)

[personal profile] kayloulee made this for me when I turned up on short notice in Aus for a funeral in 2015. It is a good food.

The source recipe is this tasty and authentic Pan-Fried Honey Hoi Sin Noodle recipe at the Woks of Life. Some of the adulterations are K’s work, some are mine.

This recipe is: considerably simpler in terms of pot and pan use than the original, but still requires hovering over a stove; pretty fast; easily adaptable to various dietary needs.

What you need:
2-3 blocks or whorls of dried Hong Kong Style Egg Noodles (not to be confused with Hong Kong style wonton noodles). These are easy enough to get in an Asian store, even in Switzerland, and the Woks of Life have a guide here. I always have a pack of them stashed somewhere. If you're a 2-minute noodle person instead, those are probably sufficient for this lazy recipe.
Half an onion, diced (maybe some garlic or ginger if you're feeling fancy)
Some vegetables that can be stir-fried: last night I used half a large zucchini and a tin of bamboo shoots. (Anecdotally, tinned water chestnuts don't really suit this recipe, not sure why)
Some cooking oil - bonus points if it's sesame.
Some rice vinegar
2 tablespoons hoi sin sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
Possibly an egg.

What you do with it:

1. Put on a pot of water, bring to boil, and cook the dried noodles according to instructions (or about 2-3 min), and drain.
2. Meanwhile, toss the onion into a pan with a dash of oil (and the garlic if you're using it). Fry for 2-3 minutes.
3. Toss your stir-frying vegetables, and the ginger if you're using it, into the pan. You'll want to give heavy and fresh veg, like zucchini, longer than you would something light, like bean sprouts.
4. When the noodles are ready, add the sauce ingredients to the vegetables, and stir until the sauce begins to thicken a little. Add the noddles, mix well, and nom.
5. Optional: in a separate pan, fry an egg. Serve it on top of the noodles and feel smug you have created a balanced meal of starch, greens and protein.

Feeds 2-3 people. I always aim for 2 and end up with too many vegetables, it's a hard life.
