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

Cook the vegetables
2 Cook the vegetables

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

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

4 Cook the pork & serve your dish

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork. 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). 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 until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pork and noodles garnished with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
