Ingredients

  • Peanuts, if desired
  • Chopped green onion, if desired

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until brown.
  • 3

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Ground beef can be substituted for the ground pork.
  • tip 2
    Cooked rice can be used in place of the pasta. Stir in 2 cups cold cooked rice instead of the pasta in step 3.
