How to Cook Tortang Noodles at Sardinas
This is just like making regular omelet with additional ingredients, except that instant noodles are utilized.
I made sure to use everything from the can of sardines and 1 pack of instant noodles. You should be able to make 2 decent-sized omelet and and a bowl of soup. The later is from the beef powder included in the instant noodles.
I started by cooking the noodles. Begin by boiling water in a pot. Add the noodles once water comes to a rolling boil. Continue cooking until noodles are soft. Separate the noodles from the water. Place the noodles in a clean bowl.
Meanwhile, prepare the sardines mixture separating the fish from the sauce. Place the fish in a large bowl and then mash it using a fork. Crack 2 eggs into bowl and add seasoning. Mix everything together.
Combine noodles with the sardines mixture and continue mixing. Complete the mix by adding flour and green onions and then mix until well blended.
The mixture can be divided into two equal parts. Fry for around 1 1/2 minutes per side. You now have the omelet or patty.
Complete the meal by making the sauce and clear soup. Prepare the soup by sautéing onion in a pan. Pour the tomato-based sauce from the canned sardines and cook for 30 seconds. Add remaining green onions. Pour the sauce over the omelet.
Make the soup using the remaining water used to boil the noodles. Add the beef/chicken powder and let boil. Transfer to a bowl. You now have your complete meal.
