Step 1: Start the Prep
To start off, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add 1/4 tsp of salt to the boiling water – this will be used for cooking the noodles.
Trim the green beans and proceed to cut them into thirds, making them ready for the stir-fry.
Next, peel and grate the garlic. If you have a garlic press on hand, you can use it to save time and effort.
Step 2: Cook the Pork
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. No need to add any oil at this point.
Once the pan is hot, add the pork mince to it. Let the mince fry until it’s nicely browned, which should take about 5-6 minutes.
As the pork cooks, use a spoon to break it up into smaller pieces. Once it’s done cooking, drain and discard any excess fat that may have accumulated. Remember to wash your hands and any utensils you’ve used while handling raw mince. The pork is cooked when it’s no longer pink in the middle.
Step 3: Add in the Mushrooms
Add the mushrooms to the cooked pork in the pan. Give them a good stir-fry until they start to take on a delightful brown colour, which typically takes around 3-4 minutes.
Step 4: Cook the Noodles and Veg
By this point, your water should be boiling. Add the noodles and green beans to the boiling water. Let them cook until they become tender, which should take approximately 4 minutes.
Once they’re cooked, drain the noodles and green beans in a sieve. To prevent them from sticking together, rinse them under cold water.
Step 5: Mix Everything Together
Now it’s time to infuse the flavours. Add the grated garlic to the cooked pork mince and give it a stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.
Stir in the teriyaki sauce and the required amount of water for the sauce (refer to the pantry for the specific quantity). Make sure every component in the pan gets coated with the delicious teriyaki goodness.
To complete this step, introduce the cooked noodles and green beans to the teriyaki pork mixture. Stir everything together, and continue cooking until the entire mixture is heated through and piping hot, which should take around 1-2 minutes.
Step 6: Finish and Serve
As your delightful stir-fry comes together, take a moment to taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. If the stir-fry seems a bit dry, you can add a splash more water to achieve the desired consistency.
With the stir-fry now perfected, it’s time to serve. Divide your teriyaki pork noodles evenly among the bowls, ensuring that everyone gets their share of this delicious dish.
Now, all that’s left to do is dig in and enjoy your scrumptious teriyaki pork noodles!
