    L'ecole's Note:

    Nifty Japanese recipe with a tangy sauce; you really get the ginger in this! Comes together quite easily. From Mark Bittman in the New York Times.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • salt
    • 6 ounces Chinese egg noodles, dried (or 10 to 12 ounces fresh)
    • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
    • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
    • 2 pork chops, thinly sliced
    • 1 napa cabbage, small, shredded (about 4 cups, can also use savoy)
    • 2 carrots, shredded
    • 2 tablespoons ketchup
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 tablespoons mirin (or a bit of sugar)
    • 3 drops Tabasco sauce (to taste)
    • 1 bunch scallion, chopped, white parts only


    1. 1
      Bring a pot of water to a boil, salt it and add noodles. Cook until just done, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and run under cold water. Toss noodles with sesame oil to keep them from sticking together, and set aside.
    2. 2
      Put peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add ginger and cook, stirring, until just fragrant, about 1 minute. Add pork and cook for about 5 minutes or until the pork is no longer pink and is starting to brown around the edges.
    3. 3
      Add cabbage and carrots to skillet and stir; sprinkle with salt. Continue to cook until vegetables soften, adding a bit of water as needed to keep them from sticking.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, stir together in a small bowl ketchup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mirin and Tabasco. When vegetables are soft and any liquid has evaporated, add noodles and sauce to skillet. Toss to coat everything well and cook until noodles are warmed through. Serve, topped with chopped scallions.

      My Japanese husband gave it a five and I do as well. Very easy to make....I prepped and cooked in 1/2 hour. I was skeptical about the sauce, with the ketchup, but, darn but it added a nice note to the whole thing! Husband and I are lovers of Char Siu and we think we might prepare this with that ingredient next time for an additional flavor. We loved this as written but can see how adaptible it is for additional ingredients. Thanks for posting this recipe L'ecole, it made our day!
