Sweet and Sour Pork Stir-fry


Oooh. This was good. I started throwing stuff together and came up with this, and we loved it! My 5 year old was a little thrown off by the 'weird spaghetti', but when I explained to her that it was really Japanese noodles, she was a little more willing to try it. Lo and behold, she actually liked it. It was a good night in my kitchen!


Sweet and Sour Pork

Stir-fry:

1 lb. boneless pork loin chops, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sliced carrots
15 oz. can pineapple tidbits, juice reserved
1 cup chopped cabbage
sesame oil
stir-fry sauce

Sauce:
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 T. cornstarch
1/2 cup reserved pineapple juice
4 T. soy sauce

Soba noodles

Mix up the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl. Heat a pot of water on the stove and cook the soba noodles. While that is going on, heat some sesame oil in a skillet, and fry the pork until it is cooked through, tossing it with some stir-fry sauce just before it's done. Add the carrots and keep frying until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the cabbage and fry some more until it's wilted. Add the pineapple and sauce, and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.

Drain the soba noodles and add to the skillet. Mix together to incorporate the stir fry and noodles.
