Remember the Pulled Pork Tacos I made? There was a lot of pork left! I needed to figure out a few extra things to do with it.
We’ve been having a ramen fest this summer. The kids love it because it tastes great and is easy to make. I love it because it’s easy on the summer food budget which tends to get a little crazy.
I decided to combine some ramen with my pulled pork to make a very easy summer dinner that’s good hot or cold.
Ginger Pork Noodles
2 cups chopped cabbage
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 chopped onion
1 tsp ginger or more
2 cups shredded (pulled) pork
1 pack of ramen prepared with half the seasoning packet
1. Combine everything but the pork in your most faithful and stalwart pan. I used Bessie, my cast iron pan. Cook until the cabbage softens a little. It should take about ten minutes.
2. Add the pork and start the ramen. By the time the ramen is ready, the pork will be heated through.
3. Add the ramen and any liquid to the cabbage, etc.
You now have a delicious and nutritious dinner that is very fast to put together. And as I said, I think it’s great hot or cold. If you want something that’s a little more like a soup, just prepare the noodles as soup.
We are in the home stretch of summer. Our neighborhood pool closes this weekend. [sniffle]. School starts in about two weeks. It’s a big year in our house. The Teenager is a senior. Lots going on! I hope you’ll be patient with me if my posts are even less frequent.
