Spicy Pork and Soba Noodles

I got this from Real Simple's October 2012 magazine.  It was really, really good. I'm a sucker for anything involving sesame oil.  I've doubled the recipe here, because I like to cook enough for two night's meals.  So this should make 8 servings.  I found the Soba noodles in the Asian aisle at Albertson's - they didn't have any at Wal-Mart.  Just so you know.

Spicy Pork and Soba Noodles


  • 12  ounces  soba noodles
  • 2 1/2 pounds  pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons vegetable oil
  • English cucumber, sliced
  • scallions, chopped
  • red chili peppers, sliced
  • 4  tablespoons  rice vinegar
  • 4  teaspoons  sesame oil


  1. Cook the soba noodles according to the package directions.
  2. Season the pork with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In batches, brown the pork, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Toss the pork with the noodles, cucumber, scallions, chili pepper, vinegar, sesame oil, and ½ teaspoon salt.
