Five Spice Pork Lo Mein



Hope everyone had a great weekend, and a great Father's Day!  On Saturday we went to pick strawberries.  It was a great time, and we came home with almost 13 pounds of them.  Stay tuned later in the week for lots of strawberry recipes!  I am still trying to come up with something else to make to use up the last pound.  
 
In the mean time, I have a great quick dinner for you. We love stir-fry here.  This is a super easy, but really good one.  We found this one years ago, and it is still in our rotation! It is super flavorful, and makes great leftovers as well!

5-spice Pork Lo Mein
Adapted from Cooking Light
Printable Recipe

1 package uncooked Chinese-style noodles 
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger 
1 1/2 Tbls  five-spice powder 
1 (approx 1 lb)pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips 
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 
2 tablespoons canola oil 
1/2 cup water 
1/2 cup hoisin sauce 
1/2 cup chopped green onions



Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Place in a large bowl. Snip noodles several times with kitchen scissors.  Our local grocery store sells a package called Chinese-Style noodle - it looks kind of like Ramen.  Last week I was at the Asian market, so I picked up a different shaped noodle, and it was just as good!



Combine ginger, five-spice powder, and pork in a medium bowl; add 1/4 teaspoon salt, tossing to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.



Add pork mixture; sauté 2 minutes or until browned. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, water, and hoisin sauce; cook 2 minutes or until pork is done. Add pork mixture and green onions to noodles; toss well to combine.

I love going to pick berries during the start of summer, but I never buy them. I just eat them on the spot... kilos of them! Hahaha.
Well I am still a student you see.
Hey the stir-fry noodles looks like a great summer treat!

This looks awesome! I can never find chinese-style noodles at my store, so spaghetti will have to suffice. :)

I could eat noodles about as often as I can eat rice. I guess that would be 24/7! This dish looks delicious! Looking forward to your strawberry extravaganza too! : )
