Pork, Pasta & Noodles


Quick & Easy


  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter or seed butter
  • 1/4 cup San-J Organic Tamari 25% Less Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1-3 tsp chili garlic sauce depending on preferred heat level, plus more for serving if desired
  • 16 ounces Pad Thai rice noodles
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups chicken broth look for a gluten free brand
  • 5 ounces baby spinach
  • 3 large scallions light green and white parts thinly sliced and divided
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted salted peanuts chopped


  • Combine the peanut butter, tamari, honey, lime juice, and chili garlic sauce in a small saucepan and heat, stirring, over medium heat until it is smooth and fully combined. Set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles per the package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and break up with a spatula; let cook until it starts to get browned, 3-5 minutes. Remove any excess grease from the pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add the carrots, peanut sauce, and 1½ cups of broth. Stir to combine. Add the cooked noodles and toss with tongs until fully coated; you may need to add more chicken broth to thin out the sauce. Add the spinach and 2 green onions and cook, tossing with tongs, until the spinach has wilted, and the noodles are fully coated with sauce.
  • Divide the noodles among 4 shallow bowls and top with the remaining green onion and chopped peanuts. Serve more chili garlic sauce on the side, if desired. Enjoy!
