Ingredients

1/4 c
vegetable oil
2
scallions, chopped
1 lb
ground pork
1 can(s)
6 oz. sweet bean sauce (available at asian market)
1/2 c
water
3-1/2 Tbsp
ground bean sauce
1-1/2 Tbsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
sesame oil
1 pkg
egg noodles, cooked per directions
1/2 c
julienned cucumbers
1 c
bean sprouts, blanched

Step-By-Step

1Heat oil in a large deep pan or wok on medium high heat. Saute scallions until lightly golden.
2Add pork and break up lumps with a spatula as you stir until all has turned evenly brown and no longer pink.
3Add sweet bean sauce, water, ground bean sauce, and sugar. Stir occasionally as you let sauce cook down to desired consistency, about 5 minutes. It should be pretty thick and viscous. Add sesame oil.
4Serve hot over cooked noodles and garnish with cucumber and/or bean sprouts.
