This is something we make quite often at my house. My teenage sons love this! I usually double the recipe and triple the sauce. The great thing is you can make it as spicy as you would like...if you don't like it spicy, leave the chili puree out. I usually increase the chicken broth a little to cut the salt of the soy sauce. Cook time includes only 15 minutes of marinade time. Of course it will taste better if you marinate it longer.
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry (optional)
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 1⁄2 lb pork tenderloin or 1⁄2 lb pork cutlet, cut into 1 inch strips
- 8 ounces uncooked dried flat wide chinese noodles, broken into 2 inch pieces (you can subsitute fettuccine, vermicelli or thin spaghetti)
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1⁄4 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce (low sodium)
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce

- In a medium bowl stir together soy sauce, sherry, garlic and lime peel; toss with pork. Marinate in fridge for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours.

- Add noodles. Toss gently and continue to cook until heated through and noodles start to brown (3-5 minutes).
I really liked the sauce on this & will make it again. I added extra veggies so it almost ended up more of a stir fry. I reduced the chili sauce to 1 teaspooon and found it met our preferences. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Excellent quick and easy dish with loads of flavor. I had some leftover pork tenderloin ends and this was a great way to stretch it into another meal. I used vermicelli and would suggest under cooking it a bit as it got rather soft in the stir-frying at the end. I also added some matchsticks of carrots and red peppers adding more flavor and color to the final dish. Made for [b]PAC - Fall 2007[/b].
Very good!! I added some green pepper and mushrooms to my lo mein. I cut back a bit on the chili garlic sauce and should have cut back just a bit more.
