Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix 1/3 cup mock soy sauce, garlic, 1/4 cup sugar, water and ginger together in a bowl.
  2. Add pork pieces and marinade in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. At medium heat, add 1 Tablespoon of sesame oil to a large nonstick pan. Make sure it's nonstick because the sugar in the marinade is a nightmare otherwise.
  4. Add the pork pieces, allowing any excess marinade to drip off before adding the pork to the pan. Throw out the marinade when all pork pieces are in the pan.
  5. Cook the pieces about 10 minutes or so, stirring and turning pieces to get all the sides.
  6. While the pork is cooking, get a small bowl and mix 1/3 cup mock soy sauce, 1/3 cup sesame oil and 1/4 cup turbinado sugar, making sure all the sugar is dissolved.
  7. Boil noodles and drain, then place in a large bowl.
  8. Pour the sauce mixture over the noodles and toss with the green onions and sesame seeds.
  9. As the pork pieces finish cooking, add to the noodles and then serve.
  10. When I say wheat pasta I am talking about semolina, durum or any type of Asian noodle that uses only wheat flour and water -- no eggs. This recipe needs a noodle like thin spaghetti or angel hair, but thicker noodles work fine. I would not use shaped pasta like penne or macaronis.
  11. If you leave the ginger in, don't have it again for 4 days (or turmeric or cardamon).
  12. I have submitted the recipe for mock soy sauce (recipe #256996). We use that because we can't have soy and wheat on the same days.
