Sweet & Spicy Noodle Bowl
Recipe type: Entree
Total time: 
  • 1 lb pork, beef, or chicken, sliced into strips (optional)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ a medium zucchini, chopped or grated
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • ¼ cup finely sliced onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • ½ a jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • Sweet and sour sauce
  • President's Choice General Tao's Sweet & Spicy Stir Fry Sauce (or any equivalent)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ⅓ cup water
  • Instant Chinese noodles aka stir fry noodles
  1. Heat frying pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and meat and cook until meat is just browned on all sides. Add all vegetables and saute 3-5 minutes, until meat is thoroughly cooked and veggies are tender-crisp.
  2. Add equal amounts of the two sauces (enough to coat as many noodles as your family needs), salt, pepper and water.  Stir and bring to a simmer.  Remove from heat and stir in instant noodles (you want them to still have some crispness, and the mixture will be hot enough to soften them perfectly).
