Easy Pork and Noodle Stir Fry

Sometimes you just have to make do with what you have.  A few nights ago I had veggies, pork and ramen noodles.  Needless to say, the cupboard, well, pantry was bare and we were in serious need of some groceries.  That's when I came up with this dish, quick, easy and packed with flavor semi-homemade style.  I love these kinds of meals. 
Start by thinly slicing a few pork chops and popping them into a large skillet on medium high heat with a drizzle of canola oil.  Season with salt and pepper.
Once they are fully cooked and are starting to turn golden brown, remove them from the pan and set aside.
Thinly slice an onion and pop it into the same pan.
Do the same with a red pepper.
Cook up two packages of ramen noodles.  Yes, that stuff you used to eat lived off of in college.  Drain it and set aside--toss those salty flavor packets unless you can come up with a good use for them.  I can't...yet.
Toss in a head of broccoli cut into bite sided florets.  Let this stir fry for a few minutes.
The pork goes back in.
Toss the noodles in as well.
Grab your go-to seasoning mix.  This was the first time I used this flavor (I love their Fried Rice seasoning) and it was solid.  
Mix it up according to the package directions--this one needed just water and soy sauce.  Pour it over the whole shootin' match.
Give it a good toss to coat.
And voila, dinner is served.
Happy Monday.

Easy Pork and Noodle Stir Fry


2 boneless pork chops, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Drizzle of canola/vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
1 head of broccoli, cut into bite sized florets
2 packages of ramen noodles, flavor packets discarded
1 packet of seasoning mix, I used General Tso's + ingredients to make this (soy sauce + water)

Start by preheating a large skillet with a drizzle of canola/vegetable oil on medium high heat.  Once the skillet is hot, add the pork and season it with salt and pepper.  Fully cook the pork and remove it once it starts to turn golden brown.  Set aside.

Into that same skillet, add the onion and red pepper.  Stir fry for about 3 minutes or until they start to become tender.  While the onion and red pepper stir fry, boil water to make the noodles and cook per the directions on the package.  Drain and set aside.

Add the broccoli to the skillet with onion and red pepper and stir fry again for a few minutes.  Add the pork back to the pan as well as the noodles.  Mix up the sauce and pour over everything in the skillet.  Toss to coat.

Serve in bowls and enjoy!

  1. That looks fabulous. I, sadly, am a compulsive recipe user and rarely am able to just throw something together.
