Chinese Pork Tenderloin with Garlic-Sauced Noodles
Give yourself a healthy break from salt- and fat-laden takeout and make this easy noodle dinner instead. Pork tenderloin slowly braises in a flavorful combination of soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and ginger; then, once fork-tender, the meat gets shredded and tossed back into the sauce, along with nutty sesame oil, more soy sauce, and rice vinegar. The result is a tasty combination that coats and flavors chewy-slurpy Chinese wheat noodles that are then topped with crunchy peanuts. (Look for these noodles in the produce section, near the tofu, or at Asian markets.) The end result: a delicious dish that’s reminiscent of your favorite restaurant lo mein.
