instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot with water; add a big pinch of salt. Cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice. In a large bowl, combine the prepared garlic, white bottoms of the scallions, and bok choy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cumin-sichuan sauce, tahini, soy glaze, and 1/2 cup of water until thoroughly combined. 

Cook the pork & bok choy:
2 Cook the pork & bok choy:

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, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned. Add the prepared bok choy mixture 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 frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the bok choy is softened and the pork is cooked through. 

Cook the noodles:
3 Cook the noodles:

While the pork cooks, using your hands, separate the noodles and add to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. 

Finish & serve your dish:
4 Finish & serve your dish:

To the pan of cooked pork, add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and cooked noodles. Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Serve the finished pork and noodles garnished with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
