BBQ Pork with Snow Pea Leaves over Shanghai Noodles


This is another rendition of “meat” on noodles with “vegetable”. Every time when I leave the Chinese supermarket, if I remember, I buy 1-2lbs of BBQ pork. If I could, I would eat BBQ every day and wouldn’t get sick of it.

You can buy BBQ pork in Austin in 2 restaurants: First Chinese BBQ (10901 N Lamar Blvd) and Din Ho (8557 Research Blvd). I prefer First Chinese BBQ because their pork tastes better (more flavor) and they rarely run out of it. At both of these places, there are also roast duck and other Chinese specialty foods for sale by the pound.
