Hoisin Pork with Rice Noodles

I am in love. Not only do I cure my Asian/Chinese craving with this recipe but I also get my pasta fix. Both with a lot less guilt.

  • Pork Tenderloin, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • squeeze of lime juice
  • 5 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp of fresh grated ginger
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp of hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter (optional)
  • 2 large carrots, grated 
  • 2 Bell peppers, sliced thin
  • 2 bunches of green onion, chopped
  • chopped peanuts & fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
  • 1 package of white or brown rice noodles, cooked

1. Whisk or blend, all of the sauce ingredients together (soy sauce, water, sesame oil, honey, sugar, fish sauce, vinegar, lime juice, garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, peanut butter) Marinate pork in the sauce for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and stir-fry the pork until browned on the outside, and cooked through. Add in the carrots, peppers and green onions. Saute for a few minutes, then add the noodles, stir to coat. Dish into bowls and top with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
