1 pound thin spaghetti
4 celery stalks
2 large scallions
2 large eggs
2 cups diced cooked pork
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sage
2 tablespoons corn oil or sesame oil
- Prepare spaghetti as directed. Chill covered overnight or until firm and separated.
- Use a deep iron skillet or stove-top wok. Cut up and carrots into small slanted pieces. Dice scallions. Heat pan over medium to high heat with half tablespoons of oil. Stir oil into oil bottom and sides of pan completely. Add celery and scallions together. Add pork, stir constantly until glowing color appears in vegetables; remove vegetables and place in bowl. Add carrots to pan. Stir and turn to cook thoroughly without burning. Vegetables should sizzle when cooking. Remove carrots when they have cooked 7 to 10 minutes.
