1/4
cup peanut butter
3
tablespoons soy sauce
2
tablespoons oyster sauce
1
tablespoon white vinegar

Stir-Fry

7
oz uncooked linguine-style rice stick noodles (from 14-oz package)
1
tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
1/2
lb lean ground pork
3
medium cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2
cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots, cut lengthwise into julienne (2x1/4x1/4-inch) strips
1
cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
3

Directions

  • 1 In 2-cup glass measuring cup, mix sauce ingredients with wire whisk until well blended; set aside.

  • 3 Meanwhile, in wok or 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat peanut oil over medium-high heat about 1 minute. Add pork and garlic; cook about 5 minutes, breaking up pork into small pieces with wooden spoon, until pork is no longer pink. Add carrots, bell pepper, green onions and pepper flakes; cook 3 minutes, stirring 3 or 4 times.
  • 4 Mix sauce mixture again with wire whisk to recombine; pour into wok. Stir to coat mixture with sauce. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors. Stir in sesame oil.
  • 5 In large serving bowl, gently mix noodles with sauce mixture to coat. Sprinkle with cilantro.
