Cook the Issue 2010: Chinese Egg Noodles with Five-Spice Pork

By liamsaunt, member

The flavors of this dish are good but I think it would be improved overall by adding more vegetables.  Just a personal preference, I am sure.

I'll admit that I don't like to eat a ton of meat so I left in the bacon but subbed the ground pork for firm tofu that I had frozen and then thawed, squeezed the water out of, dry sauteed, and then marinated in the recipe's five-spice powder and sesame oil, then cooked again.  I really like tofu but I realize this would not be an acceptable substitute for some (many?) people.  For me, it was fine, and I'd make this again with more vegetables added in.

I will be using Udon noodles instead of the Chinese egg noodles just because I like them more. Posted: 2:24 pm on October 8th
