Pork Noodle Bowl

Share this:

Make this Oriental-style noodle bowl easily in your own kitchen. The simple combination of cut-up pork, broccoli slaw, whole grain pasta and salad dressing satisfies young and old alike.

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless pork loin chops (about 12 oz. total)
  • 1 cup (total) reduced-fat sesame-ginger salad dressing or other Asian-style vinaigrette salad dressing
  • 4 ounces dry multigrain spaghetti
  • 3 teaspoons (total) vegetable oil
  • 4 cups broccoli slaw mix or coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions

Directions:

  1. Cut away any fat off the outside of the pork chops. Throw away fat. Cut pork chops into thin strips.
  2. In medium bowl, toss together pork strips and 1/2 cup of the salad dressing. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to 24 hours.
  3. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain off the water. Place spaghetti in large bowl.
  4. In large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add about half of the pork mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 3 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork is 145°F, using a meat thermometer*. Remove pork from skillet and place on top of pasta in the bowl.
  5. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the same skillet. Add the remaining pork mixture, and repeat Step 4.
  6. Add slaw mix, green onions and the remaining 1/2 cup salad dressing to the same skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 1 to 3 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften.
  7. Add contents of skillet to pork and pasta in bowl. Toss until combined. Serve immediately.

* If you don’t have a meat thermometer, you can purchase one from a supermarket or a dollar store.
