Pork And Peanut Dragon Noodles

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 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 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Pork and Noodles

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 12 ounces ramen noodles (4 packages)
  • 6 green onions sliced
  • ½ cup unsalted peanuts chopped

Instructions

  • Combine the 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce, ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup soy sauce in a bowl.
  • Add the 1 pound ground pork to a skillet and cook over medium heat until it is fully browned. Once browned, add the prepared dragon sauce and ½ cup unsalted 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 12 ounces ramen 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 6 green onions and serve!
