👩🏻🍳 Eileen's Tips for Success
- I like to use fresh ramen noodles from the refrigerated section instead of dried noodles because there is no need to cook the noodles. However, you can use dried noodles just cook them to al dente according to the package directions first.
- We love the flavor that the teriyaki sauce gives these noodles. But, if you are not a fan of teriyaki you can use light soy sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, or even dark soy sauce in the sauce instead.
- Sesame seeds, sliced green onions, or spring onions work great as a beautiful garnish for this juicy pork recipe.
Do you want to change up this recipe? Here are some ways that you increase the flavor of this dish.
- Out of ground pork? You can use diced pork tenderloin or any other cut of pork instead just cut it into smaller pieces so that it cooks quickly. Also, increase the cooking time to 5-6 minutes to make sure the pork is thoroughly cooked.
- Don't eat pork? You can use ground beef or ground turkey in place of the beef for a delicious meal.
- Can't find fresh ramen noodles? You can use medium egg noodles, thick udon noodles, or instant ramen noodles, and discard the sauce packets.
- Adding a little chili oil, chili paste, or even red pepper flakes would add some extra heat to this noodle recipe.
- Feeling a little adventurous? Try adding peanut butter to your sauce for a sweet and nutty flavor.
❄️ Make ahead, storage, and freezer tips
Make ahead: You can make the pork mixture ahead of time and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. When ready to cook, simply reheat on the stove before adding it to the noodles.
Storage: This recipe is best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
