Ants Climbing a Tree

Well well well… Haven’t been cooking much lately because of my hectic schedule; and when I did, I didn’t spend time writing down the recipe or taking any pictures. So, to make up for it, here’s another simple and easy recipe. It’s called Ants Climbing a Tree in one of my recipe books, but it’s essentially stir-fried vermicelli with ground meat and chilli bean paste.

On another note, I’m going back home for a month in a few weeks, and I plan to learn a lot recipes from my Dad, who is a great Chef and my Mom who is a “health freak”! 😀 I definitely will be documenting everything in photos and in writing and hope to publish more posts in the next few months to share with the world!

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz/115 g ground pork
  • 4oz/115 g ground beef
  • 3 tsp light soy sauce
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp chilli bean sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup hot chicken stock
  • 5 oz/140 g thin rice noodles, soaked in warm water for 20 minutes and drained
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped

Instructions:

  • Combine the ground meats with 1 teaspoon of the light soy sauce and the salt.
  • In a preheated wok or deep pan, heat the oil and cook the ground meats until they begin to brown.
  • Add the chilli bean paste and stir rapidly.
  • Stir in the dark soy sauce.
  • Pour in the chicken stock, noodles and remaining light soy sauce.
  • Cover the work or pan and simmer for about 5-8 minutes, or until the pan is dry.
  • Shake the pan but do not stir.
  • Toss in the scallions and serve.
