The inspiration for this dish came from my ever lovely wife and best friend who simply stated she didn’t feel like having Chinese Five Spice Pork (see recipe under Easy Peasy) not because she doesn’t like it but because she was in the mood for something with a little heat so I did a bit of sleuthing through my recipes, cook books, the Internet and of course Pinterest. The resulting recipe is a compilation of a few that I found on the Net plus my own additions and because I have added my own twists and turns to this I hereby claim this one as my own recipe.
Here’s how we do this one.
- Two large Pork Sirloin chops (boneless) cut into thin strips (about 10 ounces)
- Two packages of Udon noodles (the ones I buy come in four packs)
- Six medium mushrooms– quartered
- 1/2 Cup beef broth
- 1/2 cup Sodium reduced Soya Sauce
- One medium onion– rough chopped
- Two garlic cloves– minced
- One teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2/3 bag of frozen stir fry veggies
- Three tablespoons smooth Peanut Butter
- Toasted Sesame Seeds
Putting it all together:
- In a medium to large bowl mix the beef broth,soya sauce,crushed red pepper flakes, garlic and peanut butter until smooth and set aside
- In a wok or large saute pan heat about three tablespoons oil and add the onions and mushrooms and cook until the onions are tender- about three minutes
- Add in the Pork mixture, stir well, and cook on medium high heat for about ten minutes – stirring every couple of minutes so it does not stick
- Add in the stir fry veggies and cook until they are heated through but not mushy- about 5 minutes
- Bring about three inches of water to a boil and add the Udon noodles and cook for 4 minutes
- Drain the noodles, place on a plate or large bowl
- Top with the Spicy Peanut Pork and some Sesame seeds
There you have it another “simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”
Until next time…….
