Cantonese Fried Noodles with Shredded Pork: Guest Post on Rasa Malaysia

Cantonese Fried Noodles with Shredded Pork

Thank you Bee for inviting me to take part in Rasa Malaysia, borrowing what she always says, “I can’t thank her enough”. So patient and humble is she, I must say I have a moment of doubt if this pleasant lady is the author behind such a well-established blog.

Although we have known each other not very long, Bee and I need no warm-up to agree on the subject of this guest post. She suggested to go for a classical Cantonese dish; I reverted to her on this popular ‘Fried Noodles with Shredded Pork’ in Hong Kong, that is, the Yuk See Chow Mein (肉絲炒麵) in Cantonese.

Restaurants cook these noodles mostly by deep frying, which should be the fastest way to get a bed of golden-looking noodles. In our kitchens, however, we may simply prepare this by shallow frying, a healthier way of cooking yet still retaining the beauty of this dish – crispy noodles with crunchy greens and flavorful meat in hot sauce.

    A hit of instant hunger!! That looks so delicious. I can have it any time. If I cook this, my children wll be very happy. I will earn a lot of hugs 😛

  2. Angie@Angie's Recipes

    The noodles looks very delicious! I had them with shredded chicken and chives before…just irresistible.

  3. penny aka jeroxie

    Congras!! And such a lovely plate of noodles.

  4. Little Inbox

    Usually I order this type of noodle when dine out, but haven’t try to make one at home. Glad to know that it can be shallow-fried instead of deep-frying.

  5. Gali

    The noodles look very nice, just the right colour to be mouthwatering!

  6. Divina

    Gorgeous noodle dish. I can’t live without noodles. I think most Asians feel the same way.

  7. Cheah

    I prefer noodles to rice anytime of the day.

  8. Sook

    Wow that looks better than the one at my favorite Chinese restaurant! 🙂

    @MaryMoh, Please count my hug too : ).
    @Angie@Angie’s Recipes, I bet chicken is equally good, and I always love your variations.
    @Penny, Thank you.
    @Little Inbox, Both deep-frying and shallow-frying are actually good, I just biased toward the healthier version. Hope help save you oil as well : ).
    @Gali, Thank you.
    @Divina, Thank you, and agree. To quote from a TV show, ‘In Shan Xi (a northern province in China), there are already more than 280 types of noodles …’
    @Cheah, Thanks for comment.
    @Sook, I am going to believe that, that is such a kind comment.

    Bee is so sweet, isn’t she? I did a guest blog spot for her, too. Your noodles have me salivating — and I just had dinner! 😉

  11. Lori

    This is so beautiful! I enjoy both of your blogs. You remind me often that I can’t go too long without making it back to SE Asia. And until then, I have the resources to make the food myself. 🙂

  12. TasteHongKong

    @Carolyn, No second answer. I bet many would wish to invite you too : ).
    @Lori, Aren’t we just a click away from computer : )?

  13. Shelly @ EC Pursuits

  15. Christine@Christine's Recipes

    This dish is one of my fav. HK style fried noodles. It’s classic. I won’t miss to order it when I dine in at a Chinese restaurant.
    Your noodles are much healthier.

    @ Shelly @ EC Pursuits, Thanks, am flushed.
    @ Zenshef, Thanks, let me then work harder to post more.

    I really like fried rice noodles. I’ve been meaning to hone my cooking skills in your area of expertise, so I might make this and be visiting a bit more often.
    This looks delicious by the way!

  18. Chow Mein Hong Kong-Style at javafoto

    […] to the more common version of stir-fried. To start the weekend off, I made my own version using a recipe from Taste Hong Kong. It was good for the first attempt. However, I got lazy and used a regular pan instead of my […]

    I ate this dish all my life but never made one myself. The crispy noodles sound challenging and I do not think I have the right wok or pan for it. I followed your method and I did it. I run out of time to make the blanched noodles drier. I put them in a collandar and used a paper towel to absorb as much water as possible. Then I tossed them with my fingers over and over in front of a fan to expedite the process. It turned out so good. I will make it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  20. TasteHongKong

    Am excited to learned that the recipe turned out good for you as well.
    Sounds like you were cooking with some limitations but still you had got around them all, smart! Thanks for sharing your experience. Sometimes I also seek help from a fan for cooling : ).

  21. Katie

    Where on earth is the recipe for this, I can’t find it.

    I pay a visit daily a few sites and information sites to read content, but
    this website gives feature based posts.

    Hi there colleagues, pleasant paragraph and nice
    arguments commented here, I am really enjoying by these.

  24. disciplining health

    naturally like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on quite
    a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with
    spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come back again.
