Description

Chilled spicy noodles filled with ground pork sausage and fresh spinach. This dish is inspired by the Momofuku chilled noodle bowls.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Cashews
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 2 pounds Ground Pork
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Ginger, Minced
  • 4 sticks Dried Thai Chilis, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 6 cups Spinach
  • 1 pound Fresh Wanton Noodles
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
  • 1 stalk Scallions For Garnish
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Prepare the cashews by combining cashews, sugar, and water in a small bowl. Stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a medium skillet over medium heat. Let the liquid and sugar start to bubble. When it starts to caramelize, pour the cashews onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the cashews are golden brown and crunchy.

While the cashews are cooking, start the pork. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork, ginger, thai chiles, and garlic to the pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook until the pork is cooked through. Add spinach, reduce heat, and cook until spinach is cooked through. Drain most of the fat from the pan, reserving 1/4 cup for the noodles, and turn the heat off the pan.

Cook the noodles. Heat a large pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain the noodles when they have finished cooking and rinse with cold water to cool. Toss the noodles with the soy sauce, fish sauce, and sesame oil; season with salt to taste. If they need a little extra liquid, use a bit of the reserved fat from the pork to give them a flavorful coating.

Create the noodle bowls by layering the noodles on the bottom of the bowl. Top with the ground pork and spinach mix and finish with the candied cashews. Garnish with chopped scallions if desired.

Note: You can buy a number of candied cashew varieties at the grocery store and skip the step of preparing the cashews! We often use Trader Joe’s Sesame Candied Cashews as a quick replacement.
