Lean pork lends itself brilliantly to Asian cooking, in fact the Asians eat more pork than any other nation in the world.
Stir-fry pork with shiitake and buckwheat noodles steals its ingredients from China and Japan to make a delicious and easy meal the whole family will definitely enjoy.
From a health perspective it's a winning combination too. Protein, Omega 3 fats, the powerful antioxidant selenium and a range of B group vitamins are found in the pork not forgetting the wonderful immune-strengthening properties of the shitake mushrooms.
Heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil in a large wok over medium-high heat and cook the pork in batches for 1 - 2 minutes, stirring continuously. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil and set aside.
Place noodles into a pan of boiling water and cook for three minutes. Drain and leave to soak in cold water to prevent the noodles sticking together.
Reduce heat to medium add 1 tbsp sesame oil to wok and cook ginger, capsicum and mushrooms for 1 minute. Drain the noodle and add them to the pan with the tamari, hoisin, mirin, shallots, coriander and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously. Add the pork and bok choy and cook for 2 minutes or until leaves just wilt.
