1/2 tsp sesame oil


Stir Fry:

2-7-ounce packages instant udon noodles, seasoning packets discarded

2 large carrots, ribboned or thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all stir fry sauce ingredients and set aside.

  2. Prepare all vegetables and set aside.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. When oil shimmers, add minced serrano, shallots and garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

  4. Add ground pork, break up with spatula or wooden spoon and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. While pork is cooking, add gochujang, lime juice, 1 Tbsp of the stir fry sauce and 1 Tbsp of the hoisin sauce. Stir to thoroughly combine. Cook until pork is no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.

  5. When pork is cooked through and you can't see any pink, add all vegetables, 2 Tbsp of the stir fry sauce and 1 Tbsp of hoisin sauce. Stir to thoroughly combine.

  6. Saute vegetables until softened, about 5-7 minutes.

  7. While vegetables are cooking, prepare the udon noodles. Remove from packaging and run noodles until hot water to break up.

  8. Add noodles to pan with pork and veggies. Add in the remaining sauce and stir everything together so that it's well combined. Saute for additional 5 minutes.

  9. Remove from heat, divide into bowls and top with cilantro and crushed peanuts.
