Pork with Peanut Sauce & Rice Noodles
What You'll Need:
1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chile paste
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
4 (4-ounce) boneless pork chops or 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 pkg rice noodles
1/2 cup sliced scallions
Combine first 11 ingredients (through cornstarch) in a bowl, stirring w/ a whisk. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Add pork and pepper. Cook 6 mins or until pork is done. Add peanut butter mixture to pan, stirring to coat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute.
Prepare rice noodles according to package directions. Add noodles to pork mixture, tossing gently. Top with scallions.
I used these fresh rice noodles I found at Trader Joe's.
This recipe would also work well with chicken, beef or rice instead of noodles.
