Salvere Recipe: Zoodle Pork/Veggie Chow Mein

by Salvere Health and Fitness

Chow Mein vs Lo Mein — Ever wonder the difference??  Me too!  Well, difference lies in the noodles.  Chow Mein noodles are crispy whereas Lo Mein noodles are soft. So, this dish will not turn out crispy noodles but you do somewhat pan fry them. This dish uses the recently popular “zoodles” or zucchini noodles. This month we will minimize the discussion piece and get right to the recipe.

Zucchini Noodle Pork/Veggie Chow Mein

zoodlesFor the sauce combine the following:

4 tablespoons soy sauce (use Tamari for gluten free)
2 teaspoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoon veggie broth (or 1 tsp bouillon and 2 tbsp water)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oilFor the pork, heat a skillet over medium/medium high heat and add the following:

1 tbsp sesame oil
1 medium onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound (225g) ground porkPour 1 tbsp sesame oil into a skillet.  Add onion and saute for about 3 minutes.  Add pork and garlic and cook until pork is done and slightly browned.  Add the following to the pan and cook about 2 minutes.

1 red bell pepper, thin sliced
2 large carrot, julienned or slicedAfter 2 minutes, add the following veggies and sauce to the pan.  Cook for 2 minutes or until desired doneness.

2 medium zucchini, spiralized (or cut into quarters if you don’t have the tools to make noodles!)
2 medium squash, spiralized (or cut into quarters as above)
If desired, add fresh cilantro and sriracha or other hot sauce.  Enjoy!!
