Method

 
Combine the ginger garlic paste, chilli, honey, soy and oyster sauce together. Add the pork strips and allow to marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature.

Heat the oil in a wok and brown the pork strips in portions then remove from the wok (keep the marinade aside for the sauce).

Add more oil if necessary and fry the onion, carrots, broccoli and corn for about 3- 4 minutes. Add pak choy and allow it to wilt
then add the pork strips back to the wok and fry for another 2 minutes or so.

Mix the corn flour and left-over marinade together and slowly add around the sides of the wok stirring all the while until the mixture heats through. The stir fry should look nice and glossy.

Lastly toss through the cooked egg noodles, sesame seeds and coriander. Keep on the heat until heated through.

Serve immediately.

For a variation: replace pork with chicken breasts or prawns. Or add bean sprouts and peanuts for extra texture and flavour.
