This Sichuan-inspired pork noodle dish packs a punch with its bold flavors and spicy kick. The combination of oyster sauce, kecap manis, and sambal oelek gives it a rich, savory taste that blends perfectly with the freshness of green beans and the zest of ginger. This dish is perfect for those who enjoy a touch of heat and a lot of depth in their meals.


For the sauce:

  • 1½ tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1½ tablespoons kecap manis
  • 4 teaspoons sambal oelek

For the noodles:

  • 250g fresh Shanghai or Hokkien noodles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups (200g) green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half
  • ½ brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, finely minced (optional)
  • 200g pork mince


  1. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, mix together the oyster sauce, kecap manis, and sambal oelek. Set aside to let the flavors meld.
  2. Cook the Noodles:
    • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook according to the package instructions until just tender. Drain and set aside to cool slightly. Toss with a little oil to prevent sticking.
  3. Cook the Pork and Vegetables:
    • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion, garlic, and ginger (if using). Sauté for about 2 minutes until the onion starts to soften.
    • Add the pork mince to the pan. Break it apart with a spatula and cook until it’s no longer pink and starts to brown, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Toss in the green beans and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until they are bright green and tender-crisp.
  4. Combine and Simmer:
    • Pour the prepared sauce over the pork and vegetable mixture in the skillet. Stir well to combine.
    • Add the cooked noodles to the skillet, tossing everything together to ensure the noodles are evenly coated with the sauce and heated through.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve hot, garnished with additional sambal oelek or fresh herbs if desired.
