A recipe for an Asian inspired dish with pork, red peppers and green onions/scallions and glass noodles. Also known as crystal noodles, cellophane noodles or Chinese noodles, these are made with bean or peas.
Prep Time: 15minutes
Cook Time: 25minutes
Total Time: 40minutes
1package of glass noodles(bean vermicelli noodles)
1poundboneless pork loin chopsthinly sliced
1/2cupchopped fresh cilantro
Make the marinade for the pork by mixing the oyster sauce, oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and Thai chilies. In a bowl, pour the mixture over the chopped up pork and toss until the meat is all coated in the marinade. Let the meat marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
To cook the glass noodles, place them in a large bowl. Pour boiling water in the bowl, enough to cover the glass noodles entirely. Once they are transparent , soft and tender (about 5 minutes), drain the water.
Heat a large skillet to medium/high heat. Add the pork with all the marinade, red pepper and scallions. Stir often and cook until the pork is fully cooked, about 7 minutes.
Lower the heat and stir in the glass noodles and 1/2 cup chicken broth. Cook for another couple minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the fresh cilantro.
