This tasty recipe originally came from Allrecipes.com. We cut some salt and upped the fiber to make a winning pork lo mein.
This recipe is higher in sodium. If you're on a low-sodium diet, you should consider another option.
1. Prepare all the ingredients by mincing, chopping and slicing first. You will be adding them to the pan quickly once you start cooking, so you want to make sure it's all ready.
2. Heat a large pot of water (about 12 cups) over high heat. Stir in the salt.
3. While the pot is heating up, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, cornstarch, sugar and sesame oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
4. Once the water has reached a rapid boil, add the pasta to the pot and stir. Return to a rapid boil.
5. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally. After 12 minutes, drain into a colander and set aside.
6. While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once it's hot, add the canola oil and spread it out evenly.
7. Add the snap peas and onion to the skillet, then cook, occasionally stirring for about 2 minutes.
8. Add the pork, mushrooms, bell pepper, one teaspoon garlic and ginger to the pan. Cook, occasionally stirring until pork is no longer pink, about two more minutes.
9. Stir in two more teaspoons of garlic and cook for 1 minute.
10. Pour the soy sauce mixture you prepared earlier over the pork mixture. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens, about 1-2 minutes.
11. Stir the linguine into the pork mixture and thoroughly coat the pasta.
12. Divide into four servings and sprinkle two tablespoons of green onions over each dish.
You can freeze individual portions for easy re-heating later.
Microwave on high for approximately 2 - 2 1/2 minutes. Keep the container open a little to allow steam to escape.
