"A great, easy recipe that can be ready in half an hour. The package of stir-fry vegetables makes the prep process easier and gives you a variety of vegetables.

Pork Lo Mein With Ramen Noodles
A Note From Our Recipe Tester

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, more to taste

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 2 packages ramen noodles (chicken flavored)

  • 4 cups boiling water

  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce, or Worcestershire sauce

  • 2/3 cup chicken broth

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 3 cups frozen stir-fry vegetables

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 4 tablespoons water

  • 2 medium green onions, cut into 1-inch segments

  • Sugar, to taste, optional

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Cut the pork into thin julienne strips and place in a bowl. Add the soy sauce and cornstarch. Marinate the pork for 15 minutes.

  3. Break the ramen noodles into pieces and place in a large bowl. Pour the boiling water over, cover the bowl, and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly.

  4. In a small bowl, mix the teriyaki sauce with the chicken broth and 1 teaspoon of the ramen seasoning packet and set aside.

  5. Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the minced garlic. Stir-fry until aromatic, about 15 seconds.

  6. Add the pork. Stir-fry until the pork is no longer pink and is nearly cooked through. Remove from the wok to a plate.

  7. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the wok. Add the stir-fry vegetables and stir-fry according to the package directions.

  8. Push the vegetables up to the side. Add the broth mixture in the middle of the wok. Add the cornstarch slurry mixture, stirring quickly to thicken.

  9. Add the pork and the noodles. Stir in the green onion. Add a bit of soy sauce and sugar for extra flavor if desired. Heat through and serve hot.
