PREHEAT A WOK OR SAUCEPAN over medium-high heat.

When hot, lightly brown the pork; break up clumps.

Push meat up the sides of the wok. Add ginger, garlic and half the green onions to the center of the wok, sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add the hoisin sauce, hot bean paste, sugar and soy sauce to the center; stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Mix the sauce with the pork, add chicken stock and bring the sauce to a boil.

Pour into a colander. Rinse with cold water. Drain thoroughly and set aside.

Toss with remaining tablespoon sesame oil and remaining green onions.

Divide noodles among 6 flat soup plates or bowls.

Spoon meat sauce on top.

Garnish with cucumber, black sesame seeds and fresh coriander leaves.
