Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin or pork loin roast, cut thin
  • 1 red pepper, cut into thin slices
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup carrots, diced thin
  • 3 packages pork ramen noodles (seasoning packets removed and set aside)
  • 3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 cups water

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  • Add peppers, broccoli and carrots and stir fry for 3-4 minutes.
  • Move the veggies to the side of the pan; add additional 1 Tablespoon of oil and heat.
  • Add the pork to the center and stir fry until browned (just a couple minutes).
  • Add water, soy sauce, ramen noodles and 2 ramen seasoning packets and mix everything together.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer and cook until noodles are tender, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Taste before serving. If you prefer more flavor or salt, add the last ramen seasoning packet.

Notes

  • This is a one pan skillet meal recipe. What's that mean? Everything is cooked and served from one pan which equals less clean up!
  • Cut the pork very thin for a quick pork stir fry with noodles.
  • Swap in or out your favorite stir fry vegetables.  
    • Snow Peas
    • Edamame
    • Broccoli
    • Red, green, orange or yellow peppers
    • Celery
    • Green Onions
    • Water chestnuts
  • For a soupier pork ramen dinner, add more water to the skillet.
  • I suggest using low sodium soy sauce.  If you are using the regular type, start with a little less to avoid a too salty stir fry.
  • The packets that come with the ramen are very salty.  I use only use 2 of the 3 packets in the meal.  Feel free to add the third packet after tasting the dinner if you prefer more flavor or salt. 
  • If you can't find pork ramen, try using the chicken or beef varieties.
