What could be more family-friendly than a stir-fry made with golden-brown, crunchy-edged ground pork? Adding udon noodles to that very same stir-fry! You’ll do just that when you toss plump Japanese tendrils in a sauce with ponzu and veggie demi-glace, alongside pre-shredded cabbage (you deserve a break) and pre-cut carrot matchsticks (we’ve got your back). Toss on spiced, lime-zested cashews and say cheers to the easiest and tastiest 20 minutes of your day.

Toast the cashews
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Toast the cashews, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until lightly browned and fragrant; season with ¼ of the spices and ½ the lime zest. Transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough, roughly chop. Reserve the pan.

Boil the noodles
Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 6 to 8 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water, drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Combine the noodles & serve
To the pan of pork and vegetables, add the noodles, stir-fry sauce, demi-glace, juice of 2 lime wedges, remaining ponzu and lime zest, and the reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until the sauce has thickened. Divide the noodles between your bowls. Garnish with the cashews and green tops of the scallions. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
