Fried Egg Noodles

This was my breakfast this morning- egg noodles stir fried with beans, chilli and garlic. I made the whole thing on a pot instead of stir-frying in a wok- by boiling the noodles in the pot first before draining and setting aside- and then cooking up the vegetables and making a sauce in the pot which is boiled until thickened before adding the noodles for a quick stir fry.

1 plate egg noodles
handful of green beans chopped
4 cloves garlic chopped
half red chilli chopped
1 tbs oyster sauce
1 tbs soya sauce
1 tbs ketchup
splash of sesame oil
juice of 1/4 lime
salt to taste

1. Boil egg noodles in a pot. Drain and set aside.
2. Dry the pot and heat oil to fry garlic.
3. Add the beans and chilli and fry. Add a small amount of water and then add the condiments and lime juice. Taste the sauce to see if you like it and adjust accordingly. Let it boil up until it thickens and the beans are cooked through. Then add the noodles and do a quick stir fry before serving.
