Pork Lo Mein

This tastes just like we were eating at a Chinese Restaurant... which makes my hubby happy! This is sure to become a family favorite. It is quick and the flavors are amazing. With all your veggies, meat and noodles combined you can have a big bowl of this and still feel great. You can't go wrong with this easy dish!


2-4 pork chops
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (if you want)
2 cups fresh snow peas
1 medium red pepper, sliced
2 medium carrots, diced and steamed about 5 minutes
3 cups cooked thin spaghetti
1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1/3 cup chicken broth
chopped peanuts or cashews

1. Cut your pork in to 1/4 inch slices. Set aside. In a large resealable bag combine the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes. Add in the pork. Seal the bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
2. Next about 10 minutes into the marinating time get a big pot of water boiling and cook those noodles. Steam the carrots too. Then when everything else is ready you can add this stuff in.
3.Coat a large non-stick skillet or wok with cooking spray. Stir fry pork and marinade at med-high heat until no longer pink. About 4-5 minutes. Add the peas, red pepper and carrots. Stir fry for another minute. Add in broth and let it thicken over heat. When it is thick, toss in noodles and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and fill bowls full and top with chopped nuts!!

* This dish has 343 calories per serving! Nice huh? If you want more veggies, add a side of steamed broccoli and you are set!
