Dinner + Lunch Combo: Ground Pork & Peanut Sauce

with Sautéed Veg + in Noodle Bowls with Korean-Spiced Mayo

Cooking time

20 minutes




810 /serving

One order, two meals… no sweat! With our Dinner + Lunch Combo recipe option, you’ve got all the ingredients for an evening meal covered, plus a marvellous mise en place for a midday feast. Ginger-sautéed ground pork and fresh ramen noodles are the perfect partners. But the real clincher for this double recipe has to be the enticing sauce you’ll whip up from peanut butter, rice vinegar and hoisin. It coats a suppertime sauté made with Asian greens and carrots, and it dresses a warm lunch salad with a bonus cucumber crunch and Korean-spiced mayo. ***Lunch cooking time: 10 min.

Cook the pork
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and mince the ginger. In a large, high-sided pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the ginger, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the pork*; season with ⅔ of the spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and reserve the pan. Set the remaining spices aside and ½ the pork in the fridge for lunch.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, peel and grate the carrots. Remove the bottom inch of the gai lan stems; roughly chop the leaves and stems. Remove the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice. In a small bowl, make the peanut sauce by combining the hoisin, peanut butter, ½ the vinegar and ¼ cup warm water (double for 4 dinner and lunch portions). Set ½ the scallions, ½ the carrots, ½ the peanut sauce and the remaining vinegar aside in the fridge for lunch.

Boil the noodles
Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, separating the strands as you add them; stir gently. Boil, 1 to 3 min., stirring frequently, until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 dinner and lunch portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Set ½ the noodles aside in the fridge for lunch.
