Noodle with Lamb and Mushroom

Don’t you hate it when the essential ingredients in your kitchen run out? The other day, I scraped a small spoonful of hoisin sauce from a jar so I can put it in my vegetable broth. It was so little that I missed out the beautiful sweet flavor of it. I immediately went to a supermarket the next day to get a new jar of hoisin sauce, but sadly, the one I usually buy was out-of-stock. This is a thing; when it comes to condiments, they taste different in every brand. I reluctantly bought the new hoisin sauce anyway, hoping nothing will be majorly different.

Today I feel like I deserve a big good comfort food. I want it to be meaty and packed with flavor. And yes, I want to try out the new sauce I’ve just bought. When I open the sauce, it looks very different from the one I usually use. This one is super thick and dark, unlike the old one that is slightly red and has more pungent scent. I can’t really tell that it was better or not, but I’m quite happy with what it adds to my lunch.

Meat and noodle go together so good and so well. I feel that you need to be generous with what you love in order to make the dish super heartened. Here I cook everything in a big hot pan, and it takes about 15 minutes. The fresh slices of lamb sizzle in the pan and takes only a few minutes to be tender and cooked perfectly. The mushroom makes this dish even meatier. There are only a few seasonings in this dish, and the new hoisin sauce seems to get along with other ingredients in my kitchen very well.
