Chinese Spaghetti

Chinese Spaghetti created by s.lee c.

It's impressive, yet so easy you won't believe it. And filling. And cheap to make!

Ready In:
2hrs 20mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb thin spaghetti or 1 lb chinese noodles
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground szechuan peppercorns (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

directions

  • Combine the ground pork, 1/2 the green onion, 1/2 the garlic, soy sauce, and sesame oil.
  • Mix well and keep covered in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • While bringing the water for the pasta to a boil, heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat.
  • When the oil begins to smoke, add the remaining garlic and green onion, and stir fry rapidly for 1 minute.
  • Add the pork mixture, breaking the meat into small chunks as it cooks, until nicely browned (not burnt).
  • Add the soy sauce 1 Tbsp at a time, tasting after each addition to make sure it's not too salty.
  • Add the remaining ingredients.
  • By now the water for the pasta should be boiling.
  • If it isn't reduce the heat to low and simmer the sauce, stirring occasionally.
  • Cook the pasta, if you don't know how, read the package directions.
  • Drain the pasta, and toss it into the wok (or combine everything into a large bowl).
  • Toss well to coat and to distribute the meat (it tends to fall to the bottom, you'll need a spoon to get it out with your servings).
  • Goes great with scallion pancakes!

    this is really good. I made this and added some chopped broccoli (needed to be used up) and extra scallions. We really liked it. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    I love, love, love this recipe! The flavor is delicious and it's quick and easy! I added some sliced carrots and will probably add veggies each time I make this as it ends up as a wonderful one pot meal. The only thing that would've made this better was if there was more 'sauce' and I'll work on that next time. Great recipe!! A new staple in our house!!

    this recipe is really very good it is quite worth trying it has a very familiar take out flavor i used siracha instead of red pepper paste, and it gave a great subtle heat i used a leek instead of the scallions (because i did not have any) and it was great!!! i added some fresh cilantro and ginger at the end and tossed. mmmmmmmmmmm.........
