Fried Vermicelli with XO

Fried Vermicelli with XO Sauce

150g vermicelli
1/3 medium-sized onion
7 pieces Chinese mushroom
150g fresh pork

4 TBSP XO sauce
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP water

Blanch vermicelli in boiling water. Rinse with cold water and set aside. Cut pork, mushroom, and onion into strips. Saute pork in 1 TBSP oil until fragrant. Add onion and mushroom and stir fry until soft. Add vermicelli and sauce mix and continue stir fry until the sauce dries up.

Notes: This was only my second time using XO sauce and this was a recipe with a much more pronounced flavor. I quite enjoyed the spicy kick. Next time I make this, I think I will odd the onions earlier, probably the same time as the pork. They were just a bit too crunchy for me.

This was excellent, and definitely showed off the flavor of the XO sauce more than the Beef and Snow Peas with XO Sauce recipe did. I agree that the onions could have been a bit softer though, so I'll look forward to someday having it again.

Catching up on your cooking blog, was surprised to find XO Sauce which I had never heard of. And I'm supposed to know about ethnic food!! Thanks for the heads-up. I've been reading about it. And now I know about it, must soon use this recipe or the previous one. Thanks. - susan
