Pork Belly Hor Fun. Delicious, savoury, and ready in 20 minutes! Perfect for a weeknight meal for dinner or as leftovers for lunch.
Hor Fun is a classic Asian noodle dish. Usually it’s cooked with beef but I wanted to share a very fast version of this noodle dish that doesn’t require you to marinate the meat.

So I’m using pork belly which is juicy and quite a fatty meat which already possesses a wonderful flavour to it.
This is a dish that I would order a lot at the Chinese restaurant. In fact, it’s my mother’s favourite dish. She would always order the Beef Hor Fun. She’d order it so much that I could say it in cantonese fluently when I am terrible in cantonese speaking. I can only say the basics. Honestly. You’d think I was joking after graduating from Chinese School taking it for 8 years straight, repeating grade 7…But hey, I tried and it was difficult to speak especially when you live in a household that speaks only english!
Anyway back to this recipe…
For this recipe
You’ll need the following ingredients:
2.5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tbsp dry sherry
1 tbsp sesame oil
224 grams Pork Belly
2 stalks green onion
1/2 white onion
2 handfuls yu choy
400 grams flat rice stick noodles
Where can I buy those noodles?
You can buy them at any asian grocer in the dried section. They usually look something like this picture below.
Or they can come fresh in the refrigerated section. If you can find the fresh kind, go with that. It tastes so much better!
Should I boil these noodles?
No, I would only recommend soaking them in hot water for 7 minutes. Then strain them and reserve some of the water for later when you cook them in the frying pan. If you boil your noodles, and then fry them, you may end up with soggy noodles that loose their chewy texture.
Watch how I made this!

Pork Belly Hor Fun
- 400 grams flat rice stick noodles soaked in hot water
- 1/2 – 1 cup reserved noodle water
- 224 grams pork belly sliced
- 2 stalk green onion sliced into 1 inch long pieces
- 1/2 white onion sliced
- 2 cups Yu Choy chopped into 1 inch pieces
- 2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp dry sherry
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- Soak your noodles in hot water for 7-10 minutes until loosened. Strain noodles and reserve 1 cup of this water for later.
- In a hot pan set over medium high heat, add avocado oil and then pork belly. Fry until it is about 3/4 cooked.
- Add white onion, green onions, and yu choy. Fry until veggies have softened, about 1 minute.
- Push everything to the side, add noodles into the pan. Then add about 1/2-3/4 cup of noodle water. Quickly add in light & dark soy sauce, dry sherry, and sugar. Mix well until noodles are covered in sauce.
- Cook for another 5 minutes until noodles are soft and chewy. If you need to add more water to make the noodles softer, you may do so at this point. The noodles should be soft but have a springy texture.
- Then season with some sesame oil.
