Your ingredient list

Protein/Dairy

8oz Pork Tenderloin, cut into 2in strips

Produce

4 cups Bok Choy, cored and cut into strips

8 tbsp.. Onion, diced

1 cup Fruit, chunked into bitesize pieces

Dry Goods

3 cups Rice Noodles, cooked

2 tbsp. Rice Wine

2 tbsp. Peanut Oil

1 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Garlic, minced

2 tbsp. Chili Garlic Sauce

2 tbsp. Cornstarch

Cold Water, for cornstarch

Directions

Boil water in a large pot.

In a small bowl, whisk together water, rice wine, soy sauce, and cornstarch.

Warm oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Once hot, add onion and cook until softened about 2 to 3 minutes. Add bok choy and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes.

In a separate pan, add the pork, garlic, and chili garlic sauce. Stir occasionally until the pork is just cooked through, about 1 minute.

Give the cornstarch mixture a quick whisk and pour into the Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently for 2 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Serve noodles on the bottom of the bowl – cover with pork then pour mixture (Dutch oven) evenly into each bowl.

Chef’s notes

Ensure that you have adequate pan space to cook the pork. If you crowd the pan, the pork will not brown and looked boiled as it releases water upon cooking. Let’s be honest with ourselves, you do not want white, boiled pork!
