150g minced pork
1½ teaspoon salt
1½ tablespoons cornstarch mixed into 1½ tablespoons cold water
100g bitter gourd (Use the large ones. Small bitter gourds are very bitter.)
2 nests of fresh mee pok noodles (Sold in the refrigerated section in supermarkets.)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
½ cup water
2 spring onions, finely chopped
If you want to reduce the bitterness of the gourd even more, just drop it into boiling water for a couple of minutes after rinsing off the salt.
