Lo Mein with Pork

Standard

Tonight I made Lo Mein with Pork, and it was delish! Everyone agrees that this is a new family favorite, maybe you’d like to add it to your recipe rotation? Here you go:

1 lb pork tenderloin

1 Tbl olive oil

salt and pepper

3/4 lb lo mein noodles or spaghetti

2 Tbl vegetable oil

7 garlic cloves, minced

8-10 cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced

10-12 snow peas, thinly sliced lengthwise

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

3 Tbl soy sauce

1/4 c oyster sauce

1/4 c water

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp black pepper

2 tsp sesame oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat 1 Tbl olive oil in a skillet, season pork with salt and pepper, then sear on both sides, about 8 minutes. Take tenderloin out of skillet and place in a baking dish and place in oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Take out of the oven and let the pork rest. Cook noodles according to package instructions; drain. Mix together soy sauce, oyster sauce, water, ginger, pepper, and sesame oil in a small bowl, set aside. Prep all the veggies and cut up the tenderloin into thin strips. In a large skillet or wok, heat 2 Tbl of vegetable oil over high heat. Add garlic and vegetables, stirring or tossing pan constantly. Cook until mushrooms are cooked, 4-5 minutes. Add sauce ingredients, lower heat to medium, and cook for 1 minute. Add noodles and pork, tossing all ingredients together until everything is coated with sauce and pork is warmed through, 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
