We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. In this dish, we’re highlighting fresh, chewy udon noodles by tossing them with a sweet and savory sauce of cumin-Sichuan peppercorn sauce, gochujang, soy glaze, and more that perfectly complements the richness of the pork. It’s all stirred together with tender, sautéed bites of spinach and carrots for satisfying crunch.

Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cumin-Sichuan sauce, soy glaze, sesame oil, vinegar, 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.
