  • 1 pack instant noodles
  • 1/2 cup sliced frankfurter sausage
  • 1/2 cup minced pork
  • 1/4 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced tomato
  • 1/4 cup celery leaf

  • 4 finely chopped bird eye chillies
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chilli paste

Cooking instructions


Step 1: Bring some water to the boil, then add 1/4 cup of sliced mushrooms. Cook them for about 2 minutes or so, and then scoop them out of the water and set aside.

Step 2: Next add in 1/2 cup of sliced frankfurter sausages and cook them for about 2 minutes or so just to heat them up, then set them aside with the mushrooms.

Step 3: Now add in 1 pack of instant noodles and cook. Once they are soft enough, scoop them out and set aside.

Step 4: Next heat about 1/4 cup of water until it simmers, then add in 1/2 cup of minced pork. We are just using enough water to cook the minced pork, so don’t add more than 1/4 cup of water. Once the pork is cooked, set it aside in a separate bowl from the mushrooms, sausage and noodles.
