What’s on the Menu – Pork Lo-Mein

I have been a fan of Menus4Moms for many years, and hate that they are no longer offering their Basic Menus for free each week, so I delved into the archives to see if I could find a way to use the leftover pork tenderloin that I had in the freezer. Came across this recipe, which as I usually do, made my own adjustments to, and it was awesome! Here is what I used to make mine:

Quick Pork “Lo Mein”

1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb. cooked pork roast, cubed
2(3 oz.) pkg. pork flavored Ramen Noodles
1 3/4 cups water
2 cups frozen California Vegetable Mix
2 tsp parsley
1 1/4 tbsp soy sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oil in wok over medium high heat. Add pork and stir fry until reheated, about 2 minutes. Break apart Ramen Noodles and add to skillet with water, seasoning packet and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until noodles are soft.

I served the Pork Lo-Mein with Egg Drop soup. I was worried that my kids would not like the soup, but my eight year old ate tons of it! I did not use green onion in mine, but it is better that way – my kids hate them. Here is how I make mine:

Egg Drop Soup

4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 tsp salt
dash of pepper
3 eggs, slightly beaten

Heat chicken broth, salt and pepper to boiling in saucepan. Add onions. Pour eggs mixture slowly into boiling broth, stirring constantly with fork to form shreds of egg.
