    Pork & Kimchi Lo Mein with Bok Choy & Sesame Seeds
    Title
    • 10 oz Ground Pork
    • ½ lb Lo Mein Noodles
    • ⅓ cup Kimchi
    • 10 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 2 tsps Gochujang
    • 2 Tbsps Soy Glaze

    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. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Roughly chop the kimchi. 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 bok choy and chopped kimchi 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.

    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.
