  1. Toss the pork in a large bowl with corn flour: season and set aside.
  2. Cook the noodles to pack instructions. Drain well and rinse under cold water to cool: set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the soy, fish sauce (if using) and oyster sauce with the sugar in a small bowl and set aside. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat until smoking. Add the pork in a single layer and stir-fry for 2-3 mins until golden and cooked through. You may need to do this in batches. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Put the remaining oil in the pan and add the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli. Stir-fry for 3-4 mins, then add the baby corn and courgette. Cook for 3 mins over a medium-high heat until starting to soften. Add the sauce to the pan with the noodles, pork and any juices. Stir-fry for 1-2 mins until everything is coated in the sauce. Stir through the basil to serve.

Cook's tip: If you can't find rice stick noodles, substitute with tagliatelle
