Some noodles for today. Pork and Noodles. I will use some egg noodles. I love this kind of noodles. They are firm and delicious. And perfect with pork. And vegetables. And spices. Les’t start cooking.


A package of egg noodles
½ chopped onion
½ chopped carrot
½ cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen broccoli
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon peppercorns
½ teaspoon turmeric
Some salt to taste
Some vegetable oil
½ pound pork, cubed
1 teaspoon chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Some drops of sesame oil
Some drops of lime juice

First we will prepare the noodles. Heat some water. Bring it to a boil. Then, add some salt and oil. Add the pasta and have it boiling for the minutes the package says. Once it is ready, drain it and reserve.
While we are preparing the pasta we can cut the vegetables.
The next thing will be to prepare the spices. We will grind the cumin, the coriander and the peppercorns in a mortar.
Then it is time to prepare the pork. We will cut it in little pieces.
Now we will put some vegetable oil in a pan and we will heat it. When it is hot, we will put the onion and the carrot in it. We will sauté it for some minutes. Then we will add the pork to the pan. After cooking for five minutes, add the spices along with the turmeric. Then we will add the garlic and the ginger. Cook for a couple of minutes and then add the corn and the broccoli. Now we will add the soy sauce. When we see that the vegetables are almos done, we will add the noodles and we will sauté them for two more minutes.
Finally, we will add some sesame oil, just some drops. We can add some salt to taste if is necessary. The last touch will be adding the chopped cilantro and the lime juice.
And then you will have a delicious dish, Pork and Noodles. You can adapt it to your taste, for example adding your favourite vegetables: eggplant, celery…
