Jazzed Up Instant Noodles

What “Gong Zai Mian“, to the Hong Kongers; is equivalent to “what Maggi is to us, Malaysian”; basically, ‘Instant Noodles’..ha.. ha. Contrary to popular belief that the name came from the cute ‘boy mascot (gong zai)’ on the packaging, the name actually came from a certain ‘used-to-be’ very popular brand, call “Doll”. To a Hong Konger, it is considered pathetic to be eating Gong Zai Mian. So, I guess they jazzed it up a little with Egg, Sausage and Ham, to make ..it, errr… less pathetic? *smile* Here’s The Viand’s take of, Gong Zai Mian (Instant Noodles – Hong Kong’s style). (shhh… actually, forgot to add some greens!) Oh..welll..ha..ha..

IngredientS

 

MAIN :

  • Instant Noodles (any brand will do – here’s a famous Korean Ramen, The VianD simply preferred the texture better), Eggs, Sliced Ham (or Luncheon meat) and Sausages. Ooo, ofcos U can add some greens, The VianD simply forgot!!!

MethoD

 

  • Step 1 : Start by frying the Egg. Then lightly saute the Sausages and Ham. Set aside.
  • Step 2 : Then boil the Instant Noodles till ‘Al Dente’ (soggy Noodles are BAD Noodles). Loosen the Noodles by a pair of Chopstick or Tong. Make sure the water is boiling b4 putting in the Noodles.
    ~
    Drained Noodles. Run thru cold water to stop it form continue cooking and get rid of starch. Set aside.
  • Step 3 : Bring another pot of water to boil. Measure the amount by the size of the bowl U would serve the Noodles (minus a little). One bowl to one pack of Noodles. Add in all the pre-packed seasoning (less if U like).
    ~
    Doing the soup-base separately is to make sure U Do NOT get a bowl of waxy soup..LoL Meanwhile separately Noodles into individual bowl. Top with the Fried Egg and sauteed Sausages/Ham. Add soup and, garnish and serve hot immediately else the Noodles will get soggy !
