seven spice pork


Seven spice is new for me. Similar to five spice but with the heat of chillies…nice!

I cut the slices of pork loin into fine strips and marinate them briefly in salt, seven spice and a spoon of flour. Meanwhile I finely slice half an onion and julienne a carrot. I put 50 gm per person of angel hair pasta into boiling salted water. I stir fry the meat and vegetables and ,when browned,  add a good splash of soy sauce mixed with a few spoons of water. I drain the pasta (it only takes 3 minutes) and add it to the frying pan to absorb the soy juices.

Angel hair pasta works well, but you could use tagliolini or Chinese noodles,
