Tips from Home Chefs

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 and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice. In a bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy glaze, ponzu sauce, sesame oil, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

2 Cook the pork & vegetables

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork and chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes, or until the pork is browned. Using a spoon, move the pork to one side of the pan. Add the sautéed aromatics (carefully, as the oil may splatter), sliced peppers, and sliced bok choy to the other side. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened and the pork is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Serve the finished noodles garnished with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
