Stir Fried Elbow Pasta With Minced Meat

Stir Fried Elbow Pasta With Minced Meat

Nowadays our weather is very inconsistence,
either raining or humid and make us reluctantly
to eat rice, so I cooked this for our lunch.
Simple to cook and satisfying to eat.

Bean sprout - Wash and drain.
Minced meat - Mix with pepper, salt, soya sauce and sesame oil.
Elbow pasta.
Minced garlic.

(I did not weigh all the ingredients, is just instinct and
little of this and little of that)

First, we have to cook the elbow pasta.
Heat up a bowl of water with some salt and cooking oil.

Once the water boiled, pour all the pasta into the boiling water
and let it cook for 10 minutes. Keep on stirring to avoid
the elbow pasta stick to the bottom of the pot.

After 10 minutes, you will notice the elbow pasta
will expand. Let it boil again for another 5 minutes and
then test it by biting the elbow pasta. If you feel inside of the
elbow pasta still hard, by all means boil further until it is cook.

Look like this, when it is cooked.
Turn off the fire.

Drain all the water BUT keep one cup of the boiled elbow pasta water.
I wanted to use the balance of the boiled elbow pasta water
for cooking later.
Keep all at one side.

Secondly, fried minced garlic with cooking oil
until slightly brown.

Then, pour in the minced meat to the fried minced garlic
and stir until the minced meat is cooked.

Pour in the cooked elbow pasta and keep on stirring
for 5 minutes and then, pour in 3/4 cup of the boiled elbow pasta water
to avoid the elbow pasta sticking together or stick to the pan.
Stir another 5 minutes.

Then quickly pour in some dark soya sauce and stir until
combined. Taste it, if not enough of pepper or soya sauce,
pour extra until the taste to your liking.

Lastly, pour in the bean sprout and stir until combined.

Once cooked, look like this.
Dish out and serve at once.

We just love eating it especially the bean sprout.
:) Happy trying!!!
