We are major noodle fans here and this recipe was very well received. I love the combination of sweet and salty sauce with the succulent pork. The sauce was fairly oily, but worked well with the amount of noodles. The five-spice flavor was reminiscent of our favorite spice rub from the recipe for Chinese Spareribs (http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/chinese-style-spareribs.aspx?ac=fp). We use this rub for brined, grilled pork chops to great effect.
