Stir fried udon noodles with ( homemade ) char siu
What's not to love about this dish?!
Simple , fast and really satisfying !
One of my favorite stir fry noodle combination , udon and char siu . Easier than making gon chau ngau ho since udon has a firm texture .
I forbid myself from eating the rest of the leftover char siu ! 1 kg is not that much especially if you're eating rice during lunch and dinner . At least , there's only the two of us and somebody here didn't seem to like it much , so more for me , right ?! *evil laugh*
If you don't like a darker noodles , you can reduce the dark soy sauce . But lime juice and chilli sauce is a must for this dish !
I still have some char siu left for making char siu buns though it's really , really hard to keep my grubby hands off it ^___^ "
