Home-Style Pork Stew Noodles

September 15th, 2009


The big boss said that I should put some of my recipes on the blog so that the blog won’t be clogged by materials for Martians. So okay, the picture above is what I cooked, and please forgive its looking not being Michelin grade. By the way, since the article is tagged as a la carte, it’s quite flexible about the seasoning, and the quantity listed here are FYI 😀 I’m an adlib-type chef.


  • Pork 5 lb (need to choose more flaky parts like shoulders)
  • 2 Green Onions, one big piece of ginger, garlic (as much as you like), chili peppers (optional)
  • Tomato 1/2 lb
  • Asian noodles and veggies of your own choice


  1. Vegetable oil 1 tbs
  2. Soy sauce 1 cup, Rice wine 1/2 cup, Coke 12 fl oz
  3. Chinese five spice 1/2 tsp, Chinese star anise several, White pepper 1/4 tsp
  4. Light soy sauce 2 tbs, Oyster sauce 1tbs, Cane sugar 1 tbs


  1. Cut pork into five big cubes, each about 1 lb and quick boil it. Dice tomatos.
  2. Put A in pressure cooker, saute ginger, garlic, chili, put in pork and tomatos, and add B, C, D in order. Put in one green onion, add coke, add water so that all materials are covered under water, and seal the pressure cooker.
  3. After pressure cooker whistling for seven minutes, turn off the stove and release the pressure. Take the pork out and slice it.
  4. The base remained in pressure cooker is good! Take the base out (you decide the volume), add equal volume of water, and use it to boil Asian noodles.
  5. When the noodles are cooked, add in your favorite veggies. Dice the remaining green onion before serving (not shown in picture).


  • Quick boiling of meat means put raw defrozen meat into boiled water until the surface of the meat is cooked (but still raw inside).
  • I use Wu-Mu dry noodles, and they can be cooked directly within base. If you use frozen Asian noodles, never do that 🙂 Wu-Mu noodles are sold in supermarkets and Amazon.
  • It’s okay to add cooked eggs along with pork when we use pressure cooker to stew it.
  • You can use crystal sugar instead of cane sugar. I don’t have quality crystal sugar handy so I use cane sugar.
  • You can use Sake (Japanese Rice Wine) if you don’t know where to buy cooking rice wine.

    This looks like a good recipe, I’ll have to try it out.

    You didn’t by any chance grow up in Huntington Beach did you?
