Claypot Braised Fried Yee Meen

Sunday is usually a 'Noodle' day for me especially when I have several household chores to do or when I am doing some baking.  It is a One Dish Meal with least preparation, cooking and cleaning up.
Since I am baking a cake and making the glutinous rice wrap and roll, preparing noodles for dinner will be just nice for me.  I may still have time to 'look see, look see' at the shopping mall or do some blogging, lol...
[serves 2-3]
2-3 pieces fried yee meen [store bought - either fine or broad type]* or enough for 2-3 persons
* blanched in hot water to remove excess oil, drain in colander, set aside
100 gm shelled prawns *
100 gm pork slices *
*marinate separately with a dash of salt, pepper and sesame oil
some crabmeat - optional [I added crabmeat as I have them in my fridge]
1 tbsp chopped garlic
3 dried Chinese mushrooms - soaked till soft and sliced thinly
2 stalks of mustard leaves [choy sum] washed and cut into 3cm lengths
some sliced red chilli in soy sauce or ready sambal belacan
1 tbsp oil
700 ml  hot water
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1/2 - 3/4 tsp salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar [optional]
1/4 tsp each of msg* and pepper
* I used original Ajinomoto 1909
1-2 tbsp cornflour + 2 tbsp water for thickening
  1. Heat oil in a pan [I used claypot] over medium fire.  Saute garlic until fragrant, add in meat and cook for a few seconds.  Add in prawns and cook until prawns are firm.
  2. Pour in hot water and add in all seasoning to taste.   Bring to a boil again before adding yee meen and mustard leaves.  Thicken gravy with cornflour mix when it boils again.  Scoop up prawns and meat to the top.
  3. Serve immediately with chillies or sambal belacan.
