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. Thinly slice the celery on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the black bean sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of water.

2 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan, heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the prepared bok choy and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

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. Drain the noodles and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking.

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork and cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pork is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat; stir in the cooked vegetables and cooked noodles.
