Marinated Pork and Soba Noodle Stir Fry

Marinated Pork and Soba Noodle Stir Fry

On recent visit to a local cash-and-carry I found an Asian food aisle. So, picking up as many ingredients as I could, I´ve tried using some of them in a couple of dishes. This was the first time I had tried soba noodles, and I must say that I really enjoyed them. This is the recipe I concocted for a Marinated Pork and Soba Noodle Stir Fry.


For the marinade:
  • large pinch of ground Chinese 5-spice
  • small amount of fresh ginger, grated
  • large glug of soy sauce
  • juice of half a fresh lemon
  • large glug of sesame oil
For the main dish:
  • 350 g pork pieces, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large spring onion, chopped
  • 25 g dried shiitake mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • handful of green beans, chopped


  1. Add the marinade ingredients to a medium-sized bowl, then add the pork and stir well. Cover and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Place the the dried mushrooms in a bowl and add boiling water to cover. Soak for at least half an hour, then drain. Remove any woody stalks.
  3. Heat the wok on high and add a large glug of olive oil. Brown the pork pieces in batches, adding more oil if necessary. Place to one side.
  4. Add more oil then cook the spring onion, mushrooms, pepper and beans for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are cooked.
  5. Boil the noodles for 5 minutes then drain and add to the pan, together with a decent glug of soy sauce and return the pork to the pan.
  6. Give it all a good stir and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately.
