  • 4 green asparagus
  • 1 bag enoki mushrooms
  • 1/2 red paprika
  • 1 serving pre-steamed Chinese noodles
  • [A]

    • 1/2 tsp granulated chicken stock (Chinese)
    • 50 ml hot water

Cut the pork into thin strips. Lightly season with salt, pepper and sake. Cut the asparagus into 4-5 cm lengths. Cut off the roots of the enoki and separate into clusters. Remove the stem and seeds of the paprika.


Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and stir-fry the pork over medium heat. When the pork is white, add the asparagus, enoki and paprika.
