    For this comforting dish, we’re combining a few of our favorite Asian ingredients like umami-rich soy glaze, spicy gochujang, and vibrant kimchi to toss with delightfully springy noodles, ground pork, and crisp bok choy.

    Kimchi Lo Mein with Bok Choy & Sesame Seeds
    Title
    • 10 oz Ground Pork
    • ½ lb Fresh Lo Mein Noodles (Previously Frozen)
    • ⅓ cup Kimchi
    • 10 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 2 tsps Gochujang
    • 2 Tbsps Soy Glaze
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar

    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the kimchi. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, vinegar, 1/4 cup of warm water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Whisk to combine.

    2 Cook the pork & vegetables

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned. Using a spoon, move the pork to one side of the pan. Add the chopped kimchi and chopped bok choy to the other side of the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and the pork is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the noodles
    3 Cook the noodles

    Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking.

    4 Finish & serve your dish

    To the pan, add the cooked noodles and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the noodles are thoroughly coated. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
