Curried Pork Noodles November 16, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

So I had half a pound of ground pork leftover from a previous recipe so I decided to make this. It was super yummy! If I ever happen to have ground pork laying around I would make it again!


  • 7 to 8 ounces dried thin rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small fresh chili, deseeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons Madras or other curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped basil




Cover the rice noodles in boiling water and soak until soft but not mushy, 7 to 10 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the soaking water, drain, and transfer to a bowl.

In the meantime, cook the pork, garlic, and chili in 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat in a wok or large skillet, breaking up any chunks, until just cooked through (a little pink is okay as it will cook through later). Remove with a slotted spoon to a small bowl.

Add the remaining oil in the skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add the pepper strips. Cook for 1 minute, then add the onion. Continue cooking until the pepper is almost tender but with a little crunch and the onion is golden, an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the reserved pork along with the curry powder. Cook, stirring often, for 1 minute then stir in the reserve noodle-soaking water. Add the drained noodles along with the fish sauce and herbs. Toss well to combine and serve with more fish sauce, if desired.
