    Whipper's Note:

    Colorful, tasty and juicy with the wonderful texture of the crisp noodles, which places this firmly within my top 5 all time favorite stir-frys. You may want to use less mushrooms, but I love having tons in this!

      I enjoyed this dish, thank you! I didn't succeed at getting crispy noodles, however, which was dissapointing... If I make this again I think I would use less oil and more cornstarch, and add a little something spicy to it, but otherwise, I really enjoyed the flavors.

      Very good! I had to do a few adjustments due to lack of some ingredients. I used oyster sauce in lieu of black bean sauce. I had no celery, pea pods or green onions, so instead used fresh broccoli and regular onions. I had a pork shoulder that I just cut up into strips. I also just stir fried the noodles a bit so they were still a bit soft. Will definitely make this again. Much better than a Chinese take-away.

      This receipe was very easy and flavorful. The only modifications I made were: not adding soy sauce to the noodles, using sliced pork instead of ground pork and no mushrooms (didn't have any on hand). I could only find garlic black bean sauce which may have had an effect on this dish being a tad too much on the garlic side. Next time I will reduce the amount of garlic cloves and see what happens. This is a great recipe and highly recommend.
