Newly picked sugar snap peas, young green onions and just a small amount of pork are the basis for a novel dish made with Japanese buckwheat noodles and bold Asian flavors. Finish the meal with ginger cookies and fresh strawberries.

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp. plus 1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
  • 1/2 lb. boneless center-cut pork chops or pork sirloin, cut across the grain into thin strips
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 lb. sugar snap peas, strings removed, peas cut in half on the diagonal
  • 6 oz. soba noodles
  • 1 bunch green onions, white and green portions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbs. peanut oil
  • 1 Tbs. peeled and minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Directions:

In a bowl, combine 1 1/2 Tbs. of the soy sauce and the cornstarch and stir to dissolve the cornstarch. Stir in the 1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil. Add the pork and a generous amount of black pepper and stir to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the remaining 2 Tbs. soy sauce, the 1 Tbs. sesame oil, the vinegar and sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar. Set the sauce aside.

Bring a large pot three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the sugar snap peas and cook until just crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peas to a bowl. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain the noodles and return them to the pot. Add half of the sauce to the noodles and stir to coat. Stir in the sugar snaps and all but 2 Tbs. of the green onions. Cover to keep warm.

In a large nonstick fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the peanut oil. Add the ginger and red pepper flakes and stir until fragrant, about 5 seconds. Add the pork, separating the pieces, and stir constantly just until the pork is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining sauce and stir until thickened, about 30 seconds. Immediately add the pork and sauce to the noodles and toss to coat. Divide the noodles between 2 warmed plates. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 Tbs. green onions and serve immediately. Serves 2.

Quick Tips: This recipe is also delicious at room temperature, so leftovers can be refrigerated overnight; bring them to room temperature before serving again. Double the quantity of ingredients to serve four.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple spicy yummy I doubled the red pepper flakes, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I would change would be to add more crunchy veggies next time! I will be adding this to my list of repeats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & Easy weeknight meal The sauce was perfect - and I love soba. I will swap out for different veggies next time like thinly sliced carrots water chestnuts or red bell peppers. Needed a little more crunch - maybe some crushed toasted peanuts on top in place of the green onion. I could easily double the meat and reduce the pasta for a higher protein diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Simple and So Good I made this last night. I doubled the recipe, but didn't double the vinegar or the sugar. It came out so good. I WILL be making this again.
