Heat a spoonful of wok oil in a wok over medium heat, add the meat and fry well done on both sides, then fill into a separate container. Bring a medium-sized saucepan with water to a boil. Add the remaining wok oil to the wok. When this has heated up, sauté the garlic, ginger and onion for 2-3 minutes, add Woksauce , sesame oil and sugar, and at the same time cook the noodles in the water for 3 minutes. Drain noodles and add to wok.

Finally, add the marinated meat, chilli powder and spring onion and cook again for a few minutes.
