We absolutely love this recipe! I love Asian food but always have trouble finding recipes to make at home that taste authentic and this is one that I have made a few times because it’s so simple, requires very few ingredients, and is delicious!

This recipe is from the food blog, www.budgetbytes.com. I didn’t make any adjustments the first time I made this; however, it was VERY spicy, so the second time I made it, I used slightly less than half the amount of the chili garlic sauce.

We really like spicy food but with the full ¼ cup of chili garlic sauce, it was way too spicy for us. The recipe says it makes 3 servings. I would say it made us 2 nice large adult servings. The second time I made it I doubled it, so there were 4 servings and that was easy to do.

Ingredients

  • Dragon Sauce
  • 2 TBS chili garlic sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • Pork and Noodles
  • 1 lbs ground pork

  • 4 packages ramen noodles (12 oz)

  • 6 green onions, sliced

  • 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped

Directions

  • Combine the chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar in a bowl.
  • Add the ground pork to a skillet and cook over medium heat until it is fully browned*. Once browned, add the prepared dragon sauce and chopped peanuts. Allow the pork and peanuts to simmer in the sauce for another 5 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced by half.
  • While the pork is browning, begin boiling water for your noodles. Once boiling, add your noodles and cook according to the package directions. Drain the noodles in a colander.
  • Once the sauce has reduced and the noodles have drained, add the noodles to the skillet and toss until everything is combined and coated in sauce. Top with sliced green onions and serve!
