  • 1tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame paste or smooth peanut butter
  • little chicken stock powder with 2 tbsp hot water

  1. Cut the pork into 8 slices and lightly score each slice on both sides. Marinate in the soy sauce, shoukoushu, sesame oil and pinch of salt.
  2. Slice the cucumber diagonally and then chop each piece into thin strips, discarding the watery center, chop the spring onion in half lengthways, slice diagonally into thin julienne and then soak in water to take away any sharpness.
  3. Mix together the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame paste and chicken stock.
  4. Heat the oil in a pan, dust the pork with starch and deep-fry until cooked through. Cook the noodles, following the instructions on the package, plunge into icy water to cool and drain.
