Spicy Pork Noodles
I really love the Momofuku noodles because they hold their consistency and absolutely never get soggy. I am torn between my favorite though.. for this recipe I used the Tingly Chili Wavy Noodles and they were delicious! The absolute best thing about these noodles and their seasoning is that they do not have MSG. My hubby is very allergic to MSG so that means I cannot ever use any of the pre-packaged ramen noodle kits or udon soup kits because they all have MSG.
This recipe is easy, fast and will be devoured. If not, it is equally as good the next day reheated. I used ground pork but this recipe is just as yummy if you use ground beef, ground chicken or ground turkey.
Here is how to make it:
1 full 5 pack of Momofuku noodles with seasoning packs
1 lb ground pork (or beef, turkey or chicken)
2 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
4 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or Momofuku Tamari
1 tsp Momofuku Chili Crunch1 small head nappa cabbage sliced
any extra veggie you have that you want to use up! I used sugar snap peas.
For serving: Jalapeno Garlic Soy Sauce & chopped Scallions
Put a pot of water on the stove to boil.
Prep your veggies: chop garlic, peel & chop ginger, chop nappa cabbage & sugar snap peas.
In a large sauté pan, add about 2 tbsp olive oil. When heated add the chopped garlic and ginger and sauté 3-4 min. Add ground meat. Cook chopping up meat with the back of a wooden spoon until cooked through.
Add mirin, sesame oil, tamari, the 5 packets from the noodles and chili crunch.
Add 1/2 of the nappa cabbage and stir often to cook it down. When it is cooked down, add sugar snap peas and the second half of the cabbage and cook until the cabbage is still just a little crunchy.
Meanwhile cook the noodles until still 'al dente' and drain.
In the big pot y9u cooked the noodles in, toss the cooked noodles together with the meat veg mixture.
I like to serve this with our yummy Garlic Jalapeno Soy Sauce and a few scallions.
Bon Appetit, Enjoy, Provecho!
