Heat 2 tablespoons of groundnut oil in a wok or deep frying pan on medium heat and add the onion. Fry for about 5 minutes until slightly softened then add the mince. Stir well to break up any lumps and brown. Add the seasoning, coriander, cumin, five spice and ginger. Cook for a few minutes more then add the dry soup sachet and a good splash of soy. Turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the noodles and cabbage. In a lidded saucepan melt the butter then add the cabbage. Add approximately 100ml water, and stir well. Replace the lid and cook on a low heat for 10 minutes. Break up the noodles and boil for 3 minutes then drain and add to the meat mixture. Drain the cabbage and also add to the meat. Stir really well to combine and cook for 5 minutes.
Serve with extra soy sauce on the side and add to taste.
Just as nice made 24 hours in advance and re-heated.
