Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
3 teaspoons tahini (or Chinese sesame paste)

3 teaspoons dark sesame oil

3 teaspoons white miso

3 teaspoons rice vinegar

Sambal Oelek or chili garlic sauce to taste (1/2 - 4 teaspoons )

2-4 teaspoons light brown sugar, to taste (start with lesser and taste at end)

1 teaspoons vegetable oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoons minced ginger

2 large shallots, thinly sliced

8 ounces ground pork

1/2 - 1 small head of napa cabbage, thinly shredded

2 cups chicken stock, preferably un-salted homemade

2 Tteaspoons Chinese light soy sauce

10-12 ounces dried udon noodles (or 1 libra fresh), cooked according to package directions

1/3 cup roasted, UN-salted peanuts, chopped

1 cup chopped cilantro

2 scallions, thinly sliced

Preparation

  • Whisk together the first 6 ingredients. Set aside. Heat a large wok or saucepan over high heat. Add the oil and when it is hot add the ginger, shallots and garlic.
  • Stir fry until until they are golden and fragrant, about 3-5 minutes. Add the pork and break it up, stirring it as it fries.
  • When it has lost most of its pink, add the cabbage and cook an additional 3 minutes, until the pork is cooked through and the cabbage is wilted and cooking. Add the stock and soy sauce.
  • The sauce for this dish is fairly brothy. if you think that will bother you, let the sauce boil off for about 3-5 minutes at this point.
  • Otherwise just bring to a boil and then turn off the heat. Immediately add the whisked together paste.
  • Stir until it has been evenly absorbed into the sauce. Taste for additional sugar.
  • Serve by ladling over the noodles in bowls and then sprinkling with cilantro, peanuts and scallions--be very generous with the cilantro and peanuts.
