Jaime Loves Stuff : Pork Lo Mein + Dystopian Future


Pork Lo Mein + Dystopian Future



 Let me preface this by saying, I am obviously not a food blogger and I am a mediocre photographer with a decent camera but missing the awesome skills.  Ha Ha!  Am I the only one thinks the step by step photos are kind of annoying? 


I've been trying to cook more at home and I am obsessed with Asian food.  If you follow me on Pinterest, you will know that I am obsessed with Asian grubbage.  I am fatally allergic to fish/shellfish, so I cook at home.   Speaking of cooking at home, I am trying to be more frugal.  TRY being the operative word.  Have I told you that I get sucked into that whole conspiracy-chicken little-robots are taking over future theories? I totally do.  I am also obsessed with Doomsday Preppers.   I started googling what jobs we will have when 2040 hits.  Hey, I will be middle aged then! So, of course, the Robots will take over the world, we will be at a 50% unemployment.  Yep.  My ears started ringing, I got warm (might have been a true hot flash, but whatever) and my anxiety levels went up.  I am such a sucker.  I prefer the Fifth Element type of future.  Corbin Dallas.  Multipass. 






I use real lo mein noodles from the Asian market, but you can use spaghetti.  I have an AWESOME Asian market here in Phoenix and I score sweet goodies.  


While the water is boiling (for the noodles), make a sauce mixture (I am guessing on the amounts because I eyeball them):

Sauce:

1 tsp sesame oil
3 tbs Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce
1 tbs rice vinegar
1/4 c of water
1/2 tbsp of chicken bouillon (I use Better than Bouillon) 
cornstarch

Meat:
1 lbs pork (I use pork chops, buy stir fry cut pork, etc.)

Vegetables
1 head of cabbage
1/2 onion sliced

1 garlic clove
small chopped piece of ginger

2 tbs tamari soy sauce (you can use regular)



I mix the sauce in my Bullet Blender and then I sprinkle in some cornstarch and mix it up again.

Add noodles to boiling water
While the noodles are boiling (this brand takes four minutes), I remove and set aside, 
I sauteed the pork in coconut oil with garlic, ginger and soy sauce (again, I eyeball). I also start sauteeing cabbage and onions in coconut oil in my large skillet (Man, I need a wok). Add the noodles to the pan.

The noodles are finished, as long as the pork is cooked all the way through, add it all to the cabbage and let every thing get a nice, carmelized brown. Then add the sauce to the mix and let it cook until thick and BAM! You're done. Top with scallions and cilantro. My kid pigged the f out! Delish.

You can do this with any veggie or meat you like in a stir fry.



Yummy.  Yummy.  Yummmy.

    1. Haha! I totally understand that one! I am a terrible recipe writer. That's apparent because I didn't list how much pork OR cabbage I used! LOL. It's definitely easy! Recipes are overwhelming and borderline EXHAUSTING when you read them! LOL

      Thanks for coming by!
