If you ever find yourself with a few slices of leftover pork roast or pork chops, try this easy Asian inspired recipe. It's super fast to put together too - just boil some noodles and heat everything together in a saucepan.
Gather all your ingredients.
Oops, I forgot to show you the chili oil.
I used chow mein stir-fry noodles which cook in about 2 minutes, but you can use any long noodle - even spaghetti. Rinse the cooked noodles in cold water to stop the cooking process.
In a medium saucepan, combine the garlic, soy, vinegar, canola oil, sesame oil, chili oil, and the white parts of the scallions. Heat until bubbly.
Then stir in the thinly sliced leftover pork.
Add the precooked noodles. Stir everything together and serve.
Sesame Noodles with Roasted Pork
- 6 ounces long noodles, cooked and cooled to stop from overcooking
- 6 ounces cooked pork, sliced into matchsticks
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon chili oil (or 1/4 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes)
- 2 scallions, sliced thin on the diagonal, green tops reserved for garnish
- Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes or Sriracha (optional)
- The noodles cook very fast - they only need to boil for about 2 minutes, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.
- Heat garlic, soy, rice vinegar, oils, and white scallion parts until bubbly, add pork to heat through, then stir in noodles.
- Garnish with green scallion tops. For more heat, sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes or sriracha. Makes 2-3 servings.
