Pork and eggplant noodle stir-fry

Make this for dinner, then eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.
Pork and eggplant stir-fry in a wok with noodles and pak choi.
2 (plus 2 lunch box serves)

We all love a good bargain and this noodle stir-fry serves up two meals for the effort of one – dinner for two one night, then lunch for two the next day. Work lunches have never tasted so good!




Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Add the mince and stir-fry for 6-8 minutes or until the mince browns and starts to crispen at the edges. Add the eggplant and stir-fry for a further 15 minutes or until the eggplant is soft and translucent.


Meanwhile, cook the noodles following packet instructions. Drain. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, cornflour and water in a small bowl. Set aside.


Add the grated ginger and ginger matchsticks, the garlic and chilli to the mince and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the green shallots and pak choi. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the sauce and cook, stirring, until it has thickened slightly and coats the eggplant.


Spoon half the stir-fry into a bowl and set the remaining pork mixture aside to cool to use for lunch the next day. Toss the drained noodles with the remaining stir-fry in the wok until the noodles are coated in the sauce. Divide between warmed serving bowls
