2. Cook the noodles for 3-5 minutes then drain.


3. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat. Add the pork stir-fry until browned.


4. Turn down the heat, remove the pork from the wok and set aside. Add a couple more tablespoons of oil to the wok and sauté the mushrooms for about 2 minutes using medium heat.


5. Add the noodles then add the soy sauces and sugar. Stir-fry everything together until the noodles get an even, deep brown color. If you’re not seeing the color you want, add a little more dark soy sauce. Add the leafy greens and the pork now and mix in with the noodles until wilted.
