  • Yield: Serves 6
  • Cook time:20 Minutes
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$1.75


  • 12 ounces soba noodles or whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 lean, boneless center-cut pork chops (about 12 oz. total), cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 cups thinly sliced cabbage (from about 1/2 head)
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 1 cup snow peas, halved crosswise (about 3 oz.)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Cook soba noodles until tender, about 5 minutes, or as package label directs (spaghetti will take longer, about 10 minutes). Drain.

2. In a large bowl, whisk soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, vinegar and broth. Add pork and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes at room temperature.

3. Warm oil in a large nonstick wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and marinade; stir-fry until meat is no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Add cabbage and stir-fry until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in carrot and snow peas; cook, stirring vigorously, until snow peas are slightly softened yet firm, about 2 minutes. Stir in noodles and toss to coat with sauce and warm through, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Divide mixture among 6 bowls, sprinkle with scallions and serve.
