Spicy Pork Noodles

Also Chinese, this is our second favorite. We tried it once with tofu, but it just wasn't the same.


1T oil
1 clove garlic
1t ginger, minced
0.5lb pork, ground
0.25C onion, chopped
1T soy sauce
0.5C dashi
0.5C green peas
2T hot bean paste
2T hoisin sauce (or sweet bean paste)
1T sugar
1T sesame oil
soba noodles


Cook noodles (any noodles will do, but soba are healthy and tasty, just be sure to rinse them in cold water several times after they are cooked.) Heat wok and add oil. Fry garlic and ginger for 30 seconds and add pork, cook until gray. Add all seasonings, dashi, and peas. Boil and thicken with flour. Stir in sesame oil and serve over noodles.

Note: Dashi is a kind of vegetable fish broth. You can get it pre-made, in a tea bag, or as a powder you add to water.
