  • 250g fine egg noodles
  • 1 tbsp Essential Vegetable Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch Essential Salad Onions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 500g Essential British Pork Mince
  • 1 Essential Pointed Spring Cabbage, shredded

For the sauce

  • 3 tbsp Essential Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Essential white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes


  1. Put the noodles into a pan of boiling water, then soak and drain according to pack instructions. Drain well.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium-high heat and stir fry the garlic, the salad onion white parts and mince for 5-6 minutes, until the pork is browned through with no pink meat remaining.

  3. To make the sauce, place the peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, chilli flakes and 200ml hot water in a small saucepan and heat gently together, stirring until well blended.

  4. Add the cabbage to the wok and cook for 4-5 minutes more until piping hot. Add the noodles and sauce, toss gently together, then divide between serving bowls. Add a dash of water if it seems dry. Scatter with the green salad onions and serve.

Cook’s tip

The peanut butter sauce can thicken if left to stand. If this happens, add more water. You can switch the cabbage for any other seasonal greens.
