Black bean capsicums & Peking noodles

Method

  • To make the Peking noodles, heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and sauté ½ finely chopped red onion with 1 tbsp grated ginger and 2 crushed garlic cloves.
  • Add the mince and gently cook until it changes colour, tossing and mashing as you do so.
  • Then add 1 tspn sugar, a good slurp of Chinese wine, ½ tbsp chilli-bean sauce, ½ cup stock and the soy. Stir and gently cook until thick and fragrant, adding more stock if needed and mashing with a wooden spoon now and again.
  • When almost ready, soak the noodles in boiling water until separated. Then drain well and toss in the pork mixture, together with the chillies and spring onions.
  • At the same time, heat a little fresh oil in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the remaining red onion, ginger and garlic. Then add the capsicums, stir and briefly cook.
  • Add the remaining sugar and chilli-bean sauce with the black bean sauce, about ½ cup stock and a slurp of Chinese wine. Toss and gently cook for about 10-15 mins until the capsicums are tender.
  • Serve these two dishes in the middle of the table with a large bowl of steamed rice.
