See Ew is the name of Dark Soy Sauce which comes in a sweet and savory version. It doesn't matter which version you use becasue you can adjust the sweetness through using more or less sugar when at the tasting stage.It is a stir fried dish which is usually cooked with pork, chicken or seafood but can also be cooked with other meats. The recipe is easily adapted for vegetarians by choosing tofu or a vegetarian friendly substitute for meat and careful choice of sauces.
Slice pork collar and marinade with oyster sauce and soy sauce, leave to marinate dor about 5-10 mins while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Mix dark soy sauce with wide rice noodles and leave to settle & infuse a little.
Cut the bottom of the kale stems and cut kale leaves in triangle ( watch the VDO ). Bring water to a boil and blanch the kale. Set aside
Pound the garlic cloves and add to a little hor oil in your pan. Stir fry until fragrant then add in the marinated pork. Stir fry until the pork is 70-80% cooked, season with soy sauce, stir to mix and set aside.
Heat your pan as hot as possible with a little oil. Crack in two eggs immediately followed by the marinated noodles and stir fry together, breaking up and mixing in the egg as you go.Do not cook too long but do try to spread out the noodles to brown once the egg is mixed in. Toss the noodles over once to stir fry and brown the other side - all of this needs to be done quickly to stop the noodles getting too rubbery from overcooking.
As soon as you have browned the noodles add back the meat and the kale and quickly stir fry to warm through. Serve immediately.
