8 cups hot cooked Chinese-style noodles (about 16 ounces uncooked)
1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
3/4 cup diagonally sliced green onions
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/3 cup chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
9 lime wedges
How to Make It
Place tenderloins in a 5-quart electric slow cooker. Combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce and next 5 ingredients (through garlic); drizzle over tenderloins. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker, and place in a large bowl, reserving cooking liquid in slow cooker. Let pork stand 10 minutes.
Strain cooking liquid through a sieve into a bowl. Cover and keep warm. Shred pork with 2 forks.
Return cooking liquid to slow cooker; stir in remaining 3 tablespoons soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil. Cover and cook on HIGH 10 minutes. Turn slow cooker off. Add pork, noodles, and next 3 ingredients (through cilantro leaves), tossing to coat. Spoon noodle mixture into bowls; sprinkle with peanuts and chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Husband loved it. Was good with sauce doubled and added asparagus roasted in sesame oil , as well as, chopped peanuts with cilantro (just threw both in food processor) to sprinkle over the top and served over organic ramen noodles (Hakubaku brand). Loved that I made pork and sauce earlier in the day and kept it on warm until we were ready to make noodles and asparagus and sit down to eat.
Loved this, my husband and I agreed it goes in to our normal rotation! We like spicy, and this not, but had so much flavor it doesn't need to be spicy. Easy to add your own Siracha on your noodles after it's made. Based on suggestions here I doubled the sauce ingredients and used 3 packages of ramen noodles. Otherwise I left everything else the same. The pork tenderloin I bought was about 2.3 pounds so I held some back to use in salad for lunch this week and that left PLENTY for this recipe.
My family liked it (picky kids included) and it was easy to cook. Only problem is that I doubled the sauce as others had suggested (which was tasty) but this increases the sodium a substantial amount. Next time I will do 1.5x the sauce and see if I can get away with it.
Our family absolutely loves this dish. I make it as is except for substituting parsley for the cilantro as we all hate cilantro and using ketchup when I don't want to open a can of tomato sauce for 1 tablespoon.
Delicious! I agree with other reviewers, definitely increase the sauce. I used three packs of ramen noodles, probably could have used four. We added some sweet chili sauce at the end for a little kick and it was excellent.
This was really flavorful and a nice twist on a slow cooker recipe. My son said that this should be a regular in the rotation. It also would be a good base if you wanted to try to make the sauce spicier or add more vegetables. We will definitely make again.
Our entire family loved this recipe. First time was a little bland, but made a second quick batch of sauce and that fixed it. Next time, though, I halved the noodles and tossed in a "steam in the bag" bag of broccoli stir fry mix. It is a regular in our weekly rotation.
I made this for four people so I only used one pork tenderloin. I used the full amount of sauce called for and it was delicious with one pound of pork. I also used 3 packages of ramen noodles - about 10 oz. uncooked. This is one of our new favorites.
I am the 2nd to review this dish. Thankfully I was able to read the review of another person prior to making. I really increased the sauce.. basically doubled it (though I admit to not measuring). I like hoisin so wasn't shy about using it. I also used a lot less noodles, cooking them in boiling water instead of in the crock. My entire family liked the recipe. The peanuts and lime were nice touches.
