Konnyaku Noodle & Mixed Vegetable Stew 芋丝猪肉焖杂菜

Recipe source :  My own

Konyaku noodle or shirataki,  on its own it is rather bland. It looks like glass noodle but slightly thicker in texture and it comes in neatly tied-up bunches. Cook into stew or soup with other ingredients it becomes very tasty. I love its unique crunchy texture.

150g fresh shitaki mushrooms
170g carrot,cut into thick slices
100g sweet peas, stringed
250g pork belly, cut into thick slices

Seasoning Ingredients

  1. Hi Doris, this noodle dish is my kind of thing even though I have to be careful with my carbo intake. I would love to eat this with pickled green chillies!

  2. I love this with chili padi and soya sauce.

  3. Hi Doris,

    Konyaku noodle? I have not try this kind of noodle before. Sounds like it has nice QQ texture. Love the way how you cooked this noodle to make it extra tasty.


  4. Hi Doris! Like Zoe, I have not tried this noodle before but it sure sounds interesting. Do we have this as a one-dish meal or this is to go with rice?

    1. Hi Alvin & Zoe, My dish goes with rice. If you wish for a one-dish meal, maybe you can add more konnyaku noodle. However, the "noodle" is more a term used, something like the "tung-hoon".
