Then I found myself in the latino/oriental aisle and saw this bbq sauce and just hit me, bbq pork with rice noodles since I've been trying to eat healthier thought it would be a good idea to try this recipe and it was awesome.
-Takumi Korean BBQ (this sauce has a high amount of sodium you might be able to find a different one)
-Thin rice noodles
-Pork sirloin chops
-Bell peppers (green and red)
-2 garlic cloves
-Red peppers (optional)
-Pepper flakes (optional)
-Salt and pepper to taste
1. Start by julienne the bell peppers, onions, mushrooms. Green onions just cut them in 2 inches pieces.
2. Slice the chops in this long cuts that way it will cook faster and absorb the sauce better. Place half of your garlic in a sealable bag, the meat and the bbq sauce. Make sure everything is covered, close and place in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.
3. Add the olive oil in a pan and allow it to heat up and add the rice noodles in small handfuls so they can crisp up, turn them around and remove quickly from the oil. Place them in paper towels to absorb the excess. Don't let them change color they are supposed to be white and crispy, if you notice that some of them are a little translucent still grab smaller handfuls.
4. Sauté the bell peppers, garlic, onions, mushrooms with a small amount of the olive oil until they start changing color. Add the red peppers and green onions cook for a minute or less, remove everything and set aside.
5. In the same pan you used for the vegetables add a tablespoon of oil and sauté the pork chops keep stirring to prevent the sauce from burning. Once the meat has cooked add the vegetables back and cook for a couple of minutes.
6. Plate your rice noodles first and the bbq pork on top. At this point you can add sesame seeds, pepper flakes and some sriracha. As a side I steamed broccoli and carrots.
Here is the video tutorial for this recipe, enjoy!
