This low carb noodle dish can made with shirataki noodles or tofu noodles. More about these noodles Chicken can be used in place of the pork.

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or cider vinegar (rice vinegar can be sugary)

2) Mix the rest of the soy sauce with the peanut butter, vinegar, and hot sauce together, although with 1/4 cup water.

3) Heat skillet or wok until hot. Add peanut or other mild oil to the pan and cook pork, breaking it up into small bits as it cooks.

4) Meanwhile, rinse noodles in hot water in a colander, and cut them up into shorter pieces with kitchen or regular scissors. (I just stick my scissors in and cut a few times.)

5) When meat is brown, add the ginger and garlic, and cook another minute or so, until fragrant.

Excellent even without the noodles, Member aross123

I could not find the Shitaka noodles (went to 3 different stores including Trader Joe's) and forgot to buy the dry sherry but decided to make the recipe anyway. I added broccoli florets and strips of red bell pepper in place of the noodles and was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I both loved it. The sauce is very flavorful and the hot chili sauce adds just the right heat. I'll be adding this recipe to my collection. Thanks so much for sharing it!
