How to make it
- Combine the rice wine, sesame oil and soy sauce into a measuring cup. Put the lamb into a bowl, add 1/2 of the rice wine mixture and 1/2 of the minced garlic. Mix well.
- Add the water, chili garlic sauce and cornstarch to the remaining rice wine mixture, mix well and set-aside.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat; add 1 tablespoon oil, when hot, add the lamb and cook for about 3 minutes, breaking the meat up into large pieces as you cook it. (The meat should be in about 1/2 inch chunks.)
- Reduce heat to medium; add remaining tablespoon of oil along with the remaining garlic, ginger and the green onion (except what you are reserving for garnish); stir fry for a few minutes, then add the bok choy. Cook until the bok choy is just cooked through, but still crunchy at the stem. Add the noodles to the pan, along with the reserved rice wine mixture, stir fry until the noodles are hot and coated with sauce and the sauce has thickened.
- Serve in wide warmed bowls; sprinkle remaining onion tops over.
