Student Food

When I was at uni, occasionally I'd cook noodles. The cheapest available were the dried ones, pre-packed with a small sachet of spices and another one with some orange coloured fatty stuff. The noodles required you to pour boiling water on them and leave for 3 minutes and stir in the spices and fat. It's really good and warming, but oh so boring and although I didn't try this myself, I do know at least one person who has survived on these a lot longer than anyone thought possible.

There is a better way to do these.

Get some nice pork fillet and slice in thin strips and place in a bowl.
Pour some light and dark soy sauce and leave to marinate for about 10 minutes.
In the mean time cut some vegetables into thin strips - carrots, peppers, onion, mushrooms.

Make the noodles as per the instructions on the packet, but use more water - up to double the amount.

In a deep non-stick pan, heat up some grape seed oil and stir fry the meat and vegetables. No need to drain the marinade, put it in as well. Don't fry until everything is ready, just to get it browned. Then add the noodle soup, bring to the boil and let boil for 5-10 minutes.

Whisk an egg, then pour it slowly into the soup, while stirring all the time.

Ready to eat!
