How to make crispy pork with spicy noodles

  1. Make the spicy sauce: In a large pan, heat the sesame and chilli oils together then add the garlic. Cook until fragrant (30 seconds, or so) then add the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, honey and chilli flakes. Mix cornstarch with water to make a slurry then add and allow to simmer. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly. Set aside.
  2. Coat and fry the pork: Chop the pork into bite-size chunks. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and soy sauce. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch and salt together. Coat the pork first in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the flour again. Heat a large pot of vegetable oil over high heat and once hot, carefully add the pork in batches and fry until golden brown and cooked through, approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on a wire rack set over a sheet pan.
  3. Cook the noodles and combine: Cook the noodles in a large pot of salted water until al dente then drain. Toss the noodles with the sauce. Serve the noodles and sauce in bowls topped with crispy pork and spring onion.

      1. Yes the air fryer method is probably the best way to do it . I coated my pork bytes with a special flower coating .then I sprayed with a cooking olive oil at 400 degrees and they were perfect .
