    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Remove the noodles and honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), black bean sauce, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Cook the pork
    2 Cook the pork

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
