Balinese Pork Noodles

Howdy folks! Lack of blogging as I’ve started a new job! .. thus cramming my brain with information during the day leaves me pretty much brain dead when I come home from work, and just wanting to veg out in front of the TV. New job is going swimmingly well, the people are awesome, the work is interesting, but there is SO MUCH to learn!

I made this dish earlier this year, can’t remember when exactly, but it was from Real Living magazine. My friend Katie had made it using the pork fillet as the original recipe says to and raved about how good it was; but I had pork mince in my fridge, so tried it with that instead. With pork mince being a little cheaper than fillet, it was much easier on the wallet, and tasted just as good I’m sure!

A great dish to make and have leftovers for work the next day… which is good for me, as my new work place is in an industrial area, and the only options for lunch are Subway (urgh!) and a greasy truck driver tuck shop (ewwww!!)

    Yum! How good does this look!!! I love substituting solid meat for mince… in these sort of dishes it is so much easier to eat and you get a better flavour mix… I am pinning this on to a brand new board called Healthy & Delicious!
