These spicy pork mince noodles are your next easy weeknight recipe! Have dinner on the table in less than half an hour and serve a meal with a kick. They really are the perfect use for minced pork.
We really like having pork mince on hand for quick and easy dinners. It cooks quickly and has great flavour, it also goes amazingly with loads of difference cuisines bus Asian is one of our favourite ways to use it.
We’ve just got back from holiday. We were in Dubrovnik, Croatia for a few days and we had such a good time just relaxing. We had one beautiful sunny day and two rainy days.
On the sunny day we took a walk around the city walls and I managed to get a slightly burned forehead and nose. Then on the rainy days we went and sat in bars and drank wine and baileys hot chocolates and, not gonna lie, I think they were probably better than the days we actually did stuff.
I’ve been so excited to get away for a while and getting some quality time with Will just soothed me a bit after being pretty stressed recently.
Alas now it’s nearly back to real life but luckily we have once more day off tomorrow since it’s a bank holiday here in the UK. We’re having some friends round for lunch and I’m just going to try and pretend work doesn’t exist for one more day!
This recipe is exactly what I’m going to need next week when I’m back in the office and not getting home til 7pm each night. It’s so super quick and tasty.
All you need to do is mix your pork mince with a load of other yummy ingredients like pak choi, bamboo shoots and soy sauce then fry it off in a little sesame oil and mix with freshly cooked noodles.

I don’t know about you but I tend to have most of those ingredients on hand.

Something like my 15 minute soy peanut noodles are the kind of recipe I’ll make when I’m short on time and ingredients but want something big on flavour and it’s made from all store cupboard stuff 😍
And of course don’t forget the toppings. Chopped peanuts, chilli and coriander (cilantro) are all vital in this situation to make a perfect combination of flavours and textures.
