  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 400g oyster mushrooms (or your mushrooms of choice)
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 heaped tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (or any neutral oil)
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 4 portions of ready-to-cook noodles (any type)


  1. Tear or slice the oyster mushrooms into thin strips. In a small bowl, whisk together the water, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, sugar and garlic, then set aside for later.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan or wok over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the mushrooms and spring onion whites, season very lightly with salt and stir fry for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked.
  4. Add the sauce made in step 1 and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened, then remove the pan from the heat.
  5. In a separate pot, cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then drain.
  6. Return the saucy mushrooms to the stove over a medium-high heat. Add the noodles and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until everything is nice and hot and the sauce nicely coats the noodles.
  7. Transfer to a platter and top with the spring onion greens, then serve and enjoy.
