How to Make Easy Spicy Pork Noodles
Once you have your ingredients out and ready to go, it’s a matter of getting all that flavor mixed together. First, cook the ramen noodles, but do not add the flavor pack (if there is one). They usually take about 3 minutes in boiling water. Drain the noodles and set them aside.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat up the oil and cook the sliced pork loin in the heated oil until it has been browned. Then, add the garlic and cook it for about a minute. Next, add the brown sugar, soy sauce, and chili garlic sauce to the skillet, stirring to combine. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the skillet, and let the ingredients simmer for about 5 minutes. Finally, mix in the boiled noodles and serve! You can add green onions to the top if you wish.
How to Slice the Pork
I have emphasized slicing the pork very thin, but what does that mean exactly? If you can’t buy it already sliced, you can definitely do it on your own. First, place the cut of meat into a freezer-safe bag and freeze the meat for about an hour. If you are letting the meat thaw from a frozen state, don’t let it get completely thawed out before slicing it. You want the pork to be easy enough to cut through, but still have some firmness to it. Grab a sharp knife and carefully slice pieces about 1/8-inch thick and set aside until you have all the meat sliced. You can use the meat immediately, or you can wrap the pieces in plastic wrap, seal in a freezer-safe bag, and store in the freezer until you are ready to use them.
