Pork With Noodles

Pork & Noodles

Carol’s Spicy Pork with pasta

(to serve two people)
1/2 pound of ground pork shoulder or pork tenderloin -- we generally buy an unseasoned ground pork from Lee Menius at Wild Turkey farms
1 teaspoon of peanut oil or sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 inch piece of ginger root, minced
2 teaspoons of Chinese chili and garlic paste( easily found in the Oriental part of the super market)
2 tablespoon of Hoisin sauce( also in super market)
2 tablespoon of dry sherry
2 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 cup of chicken broth
1 bunch of green onions, sliced thinly, including a little of the green part of the onion as well
1/2 pound of broccoli, cut into small pieces, cooked but still crisp.
Pasta for two people

In a wok, heat the oil a little, add the ground pork, and cook until all pinkness is gone from the meat.  Make a hole in the middle of the meat, add the garlic and ginger, and stir to mix; then mix into the meat mixture. Add the remainder of the ingredients and stir to combine.  Meanwhile, bring to boil water to cook the pasta.  When cooked, drain and add to the meat mixture and mix until blended. Simmer for about ½ an hour or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.  Add the sliced green onions and mix. Serve, putting the broccoli pieces around the edges of each dish.
