tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a separate bowl, whisk together the black bean-chile sauce, soy glaze, and 1/3 cup of water.

2 Cook the pork

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the broccoli florets and sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly softened and the water has cooked off. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined.
