1.*To make stir-fried sauce

(2) Mince all the ingredients for the sauce.
(3) Heat the oil in the wok, add the minced ginger, green onion, garlic, and briefly fry. Add the onion and fry it until the color changes to a light brown. Next, add the pork and cooking sake. Add the dark brown miso/water mixture and turn the heat down to a medium boil. Finally, add the Tofu, baby bamboo sugar, and salt then stir until the sauce is piping hot.
(4) Pour into a bowl for serving.

2. * To Tomato sauce
(1) Mince the green onion and stir the eggs in a cup.
(2) Heat the oil in the wok, add half of the green onions, and fry briefly. Add canned tomato sauce. Keep the heat up. Add scrambled eggs. Last, add the rest of the green onions, sugar, and salt.
(3) Pour into a bowl.

3. * To garnish vegetables
(1) Bean sprouts need to be boiled in hot water, strained, and left to cool in room temperature water.
(2) Shred the carrot and cucumbers.
(3) Place all the ingredients in a bowl.

4. * Noodles
(1) Boil the noodles but leave them a little hard, strain, put in cool water,
and then place in a serving bowl.

※ To dish up
Place noodles into a bowl.
Garnish with vegetables. Spoon over the two kinds of sauce.

Important points:
(1) When making the stir fry sauce, add water if you feel it is burning.
(2) Turn off the gas when the sauce becomes shiny.
(3) A lot of oil and sugar are used in making Beijing stir-fried noodles!

※ Selecting noodles:
In China we use fresh, home-made noodles. I can’t find the same noodles in Japan; Somen and Udon both have a lot of salt to help preserve them longer. I rinse them once in water before eating to get rid of the salty taste.
※ It’s better to add a little vinegar! There’s Chinese Vinegar or Italian Vinegar, your choice.
