Cook it With Our
- ½ cup chili garlic sauce
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 6 scallions chopped, whites and greens separated
- 1 ½ pounds ground pork
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 packages ramen noodles, seasoning packets removed
- ½ cup unsalted peanuts, chopped
- 1 chili pepper, sliced (optional)
- 2 tablespoons scallion greens, sliced for garnish
- Combine chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, peanut butter, and ground ginger in a small bowl.
- Bring water to a boil in a small sauce pot, then lower heat to a simmer. Add eggs, simmer for 6 ½ - 7 minutes, and place eggs in an ice bath for 2 minutes. Remove shells and set aside.
- While the eggs are boiling, preheat the wok. If using gas, preheat over medium-high for 4-5 minutes. If using electric or induction, preheat over medium-low for 5 minutes, then increase the heat to medium-high for 3-5 minutes.
- Sauté scallion whites for 1 minute. Add pork and salt, and cook undisturbed for 3 minutes.
- Using a spatula or wok spoon, break up pork and continue to cook until nicely browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Add peanuts and cook for 1 additional minute.
- While the pork is cooking, make noodles according to packaging instructions, then drain. (Don’t use the seasoning packets.)
- Once the pork has cooked through, add the sauce and chili pepper and mix until pork is coated. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce begins to thicken.
- Remove wok from heat and add noodles. Toss to combine.
- Top with soft-boiled eggs, cut in half. Garnish with scallion greens.
